KEKOA'S KITCHEN a Hawaiian plate lunch style restaurant is set to open in the Villages at Allen on March 5th. 

Growing up, I was raised eating deliciously sweet Hawaiian comfort food. In our culture, a Plate Lunch is very common, this is typically seen as an assortment of items packed into a container for an easy Grab-n-Go lunch. Every time I would go home to Hawai'i, there would always be new items in our family feast that I never had before and unfortunately wouldn't find on the Mainland, and I want to change that.

Speaking of feasts, a typical Hawaiian dinner is usually done to ensure food for the following days and to feed as many people as possible. I want to bring that culture to the Mainland, where a family feast is full of heavy plates and enough food for leftovers.

Since graduating from Culinary School in 2012, I knew I always wanted to come up with a restaurant concept that brought big families together and also allowed people to create their own Plate Lunch. Most Hawaiian restaurants I've been to typically have set plates and charge for substitutions, but not us. We allow you to customize your own plate with our different choices of sides and entrees. 

We hope to see you and your family soon. Let us show you what real Comfort Hawaiian Food tastes like!
