Uahi Island Grill
This isn’t a typical plate lunch place. Uahi Island Grill offers guilt-free gourmet meals, made with fresh Island ingredients and served in biodegradable to-go containers.
Though the menu items are a bit pricier than most plate lunches, they’re well worth it. Sandwiches—from furikake tofu to garlic chicken—come piled high with veggies topped with a side of chili aioli sauce. Save room for the lilikoi cheesecake, made in house. 307 Uluniu St., 266-4646.
Shanon Jenkins Schubert is a Kailua girl, born and raised, who says she danced herself “right out of the womb.” Her years of studying dance styles from hip hop to hula inspired her to open a hybrid studio in her hometown, with such fusion offerings as yogilates—a blend of Hatha flow yoga with Pilates mat exercises. The studio, which looks out on the Koolaus, also includes a boutique featuring organic and locally designed clothing lines, such as Lily Lotus. 776 Kailua Road, 2nd floor, 262-1933, www.kailuamovementstudio.com.
