Hawaiian food!

Got a hankerin' for kalua pork, lomi-lomi salmon, even spam musubi. Any restaurants around here serve such island dishes? I drove by a kitschy Trader Vic's-type place in Alexandria a few weks ago, but I want the real deal, not a place that serves chicken breast with bottled teriyaki sauce slathered over it and dubbed a "Hawaiian" dish.

I can't recall the name, but it is actually owned by a hawaiin guy.

I thought that they had closed.

If someone writes a book about restaurants and nobody reads it, will it produce a 10 page thread?

I haven't found a place locally that serves anything like what I used to eat when I lived in Hawaii so I make kalua-style pig and laulau style chicken (sorry, I don't eat seafood) at home when I get a craving. I think some of the local schools could clean up in the summer with a huli-huli chicken stand! I haven't mastered haupia yet (attempts have been tasty but not resembling the actual thing) but it is the next thing I'm going to tackle.
