Aloha Kitchen can be found nestled among corporate giants like Verizon and Starbucks in a strip mall in Silverdale. Serving delicious, fresh-from-the-farm Hawaiian dishes is like coming home for Allan Hammond who lived and worked there for two years before moving off of Hawaii to pursue his career dream on mainland. He now runs this restaurant which has been open since November.
At this cozy, counter-service spot, they specialize in South Pacific dishes with Hawaiian influences such as saimin noodle soup, kimchee and potato mac salad - South Pacific classics combined with Hawaiian flair! Plate lunches such as oxtail, loco moco and chicken katsu are also highly acclaimed; and on Saturday nights they host a full luau dinner complete with traditional trimmings!
Aloha Kitchen is a family-run eatery, so expect to wait for a table. A clipboard sits near the front counter where customers can sign up and indicate when they will arrive; once your name comes up an employee will seat you immediately.
As well as being a family business, this restaurant also actively contributes to community projects and causes. For example, its owners have collected clothing donations for families displaced by Maui wildfires; donations will continue being accepted up until September. They have also launched a GoFundMe campaign for one of their family members who lost his home.
