Though we strive to use Hawaiian spelling and punctuation across HONOLULU Magazine’s print, web and social media platforms, we’ve made an exception for databases, which have trouble reading ‘okina and kahakō.

The dishes at Shaloha accommodate the pita bread, not the other way around. Owner Sage Sisko moved to Hawaii five years ago from Israel and when he first tasted the water here, it reminded him of water in Israel 20 or 30 years ago. He also observed that the weather doesn't change dramatically in Hawaii (excepting the past month or so). These two factors he says are “the ground base for making really, really good pita bread.”
