Order the huli huli chicken plate ($10) at JAK’s, which comes with jasmine rice, mac salad and plantain chips. Huli huli chicken is traditionally marinated in a sweet, teriyaki-style sauce and grilled. It came on the scene in Hawaii in the 1950s.
JAK’s chicken, marinated in soy sauce, pineapple, brown sugar, ginger, garlic and shallots-it's so flavorful, you'll do a double-take to make sure it's chicken, not pork.
You can also try JAK’s loco moco. Loco moco is made of rice, hamburger patties, fried eggs and gravy, and, according to the origin story, was created in 1949 in the town of Hilo to satisfy teenagers looking for a quick bite.
