Hawaiian lunch

31 Mar

After touring the Pima Air and Space Museum (four hours of planes, planes and more planes) we were completely famished. We love Hawaiian food and, lo and behold, we found a quaint little restaurant called Lani’s Luau serving authentic food. We perused the menu for a few minutes and finally decided to split the Luau Plate. This plate consisted of Kalua style pulled pork, chicken long rice (chicken soup), laulau, lomilomi salmon, poke, 2 heaping scoops of white rice and a choice of either macaroni or salad garden. Laulau consists of pulled pork and salted butterfish wrapped in taro leaves, wrapped in ti leaves and then steamed.

I usually prefer mom and pop restaurants over the big chain restaurants. If you’re ever in Tucson, take a few extra minutes to find this fabulous little restaurant. You’ll be glad you did.
