Cuisine: Hawaiian
Rating: 4/5

Uahi Island Grill is a popular restaurant located in Kailua that offers contemporary Hawaiian cuisine using wholesome, fresh ingredients. The restaurant has been featured on Food Network's Diner's Drive-In's and Dives with a great review from the host Guy Fieri. They're not only well known by the locals, but also by tourists who are looking for a delicious meal.

On our second day in Oahu, we planned a relaxing afternoon in Kailua and our first stop was to get lunch at Uahi Island Grill. We got to the restaurant right when it opened which was great because we were the first ones there and apparently this place becomes really busy. We decided to order our food to go so that we could enjoy it at Lanikai Beach.


Poke Bowl
Fresh, locally caught Ahi tossed in shoyu,
sesame oil, green and white onions served on furikake rice

I ordered the Poke Bowl with brown rice and green papaya salad. The ahi was very fresh with a soft texture that melted in my mouth, and the green papaya salad definitely added a refreshing element to the meal. I should have gone with white rice instead of brown because it was a bit dry and hard for me.

Garlic Ahi
Fresh, locally caught Ahi served with 
garlic teriyaki butter sauce

Kevin ordered the Garlic Ahi with brown rice and kimchi. He said his meal was okay and nothing too special. Maybe he should've gone with the poke because you can't go wrong with poke in Hawaii!

Waialua Soda Works
Pineapple flavour

This is the best fruit flavoured soda ever! They use high quality ingredients like natural flavourings and pure cane sugar. I highly recommend everyone to find a bottle of Waialua Soda Works when you visit Oahu and give it a try yourself! 

It was a wonderful experience eating fresh ahi while sitting in front of the gorgeous crystal blue waters at Lanikai Beach. Too bad Kevin didn't enjoy his meal as much as I did, but that didn't take away from the great time we had that afternoon! =)
