Street:2950 South Alma School Road
This unassuming little restaurant features Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Hawaiian favorites like Teriyaki chicken, Bulkogi, Kalbi, Chicken Katsu, Kalua Pig, Manapua and Saimin. The Aloha Kitchen offers fast service in a casual and cheerful Hawaiian-style cafe. While there is no tiki to be found, it's a long time local favorite and winner of Phoenix New Times Best of Award.
When you go, make sure you order their popular side item, MANAPUA!!! Manapua is a china white ball of soft baked dough stuffed with steamy pieces of pork. Too delicious for words, it's often sold out before the lunch hour is over.
