Kua Aina Sandwich

A favorite among locals and tourists since its opening in 1975, Kua Aina, serves huge and immensely savory hand-formed burgers. From bacon to cheese, to avocado and, of course, Hawaiian pineapple, everything can be added, so this is a treat which should not be missed.


The cuisine of Oahu has naturally been influenced by its surroundings – seafood, therefore, plays a large part in the local cuisine, complemented by excellent roast meats (the traditional kalua pork should not be missed), as well as by daring Asian influences. Dishes are served with a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables including the local root vegetable taro, which is usually mashed to turn poi, a staple in the Hawaiian cuisine.
