Hawaiian Brians: Resturaunt Review

I rate this local joint as mediocre. The environment is a little lacking, but I don’t go to restaurants for the scenery! The food is so juicy and tender that it almost reminds me of Grandma’s house (except for that she can’t cook Hawaiian style food). The Kalua Pig dish featured some of the best roasted pork I have ever eaten! The pork was just melt in your mouth tender. The Shoyu Chicken dish is composed of boneless chicken thighs slow braised in the secret Shoyu sauce (which I’m pretty sure is a blend of soy sauce, pineapple juice, and something else I can’t put my finger on); this gave the chicken a tender flavorful finish. While the meats on each of these plates were extraordinarily good, the side dishes were bland. I would suggest doubling up on meat and steamed rice! Even though I didn’t care for the sides, I will definitely venture back to Hawaiian Brian’s soon!

P.S-They serve breakfast as well! If you’re into Spam and eggs, you’ll love it. If not, you should definitely give their lunch a try at least once!
