“Being at the Pau Hana Bar, it’s all about local,” says Brian Nagai, chef de cuisine at Foodland. “Whether it’s on the weekend and you’re coming in to watch the game and have something to eat or after the long drive and you want a beer and a couple pūpūs before going home, we’ve got something for everybody.”


The menu not only appeals to foodies, but the neighborhood as a whole, evident by their 2021 Hale ‘Aina win as a Finalist for Best Pau Hana Food. Go down the list and there’s something bound to catch your attention. Salt-and-vinegar fried chicken skins. Oxtail soup with all the fixings. Sizzling pūpū steak covered in garlic butter and kabayaki sauce. You don’t have to tell us twice.
