Kilohana Grill in San Ramon is decorated with a few pictures of tropical flowers and beach scenes, but thats just for the haole. Real Hawaiians flock to this friendly little cafe for the plate lunch: two scoops of rice, one scoop of the East Bays best mac salad, and your choice of multiculti meats like chicken katsu, Portuguese sausages, or Korean short ribs. Go on a weekend for the killer kalua pork and lau lau (steamed pork wrapped in taro leaves).
Hours: 11a.m.-8:00p.m. Mon-Sat. Closed Sunday.
