Fried spuds are the primary focus at Potato Corner, where customers can pair their favorite potato product with various flavors and dipping sauces. Choose from original fries, spiraling loopy fries, puffy tater tots, or crispy potato chips before adorning fried tubers in one of four flavors: barbecue, cheddar, chili barbecue, or sour cream and onion. You can also make a meal of it by adding chicken tenders, opting for a chili cheese baked potato, or eating fries off of fancy china you brought from home.
Ono Hawaiian BBQ brings the island to the mainland with tender meats soaked in made-from-scratch marinades. Chefs hand roll chicken katsu in panko bread crumbs to give it a fresh, crispy texture, and assemble generous portions of crispy shrimp, island whitefish, and barbecue chicken in the seafood mix.
House of Louie's extensive dinner menu is largely built around traditional Chinese dishes such as sweet-and-sour almond duck, sizzling beef, white sauce shrimp, and broccoli in oyster sauce. To complement the menu’s wide range of flavors, bartenders pour red and white wines from California, Taiwan, and Japan or serve up cool shots of soy sauce.
The restaurant can get a bit crowded around lunchtime, but visitors always make room for the three servers who cart daily creations around the dining room. Diners of age can imbibe from the establishment's full bar and reserve the available banquet room for gatherings or events.
Organic, market-fresh ingredients abound at Saladish, where oven-baked potatoes offset an epic build-your-own salad or wrap option replete with 8 proteins, 55 toppings, and 18 high-end dressings. Thai-peanut or feta-cheese vinaigrettes cascade over morsels of portobello mushroom, soybeans, basil, and sprouts within custom-made creations that are crammed with more vitamins and minerals than a dietician's fanny pack. Four types of oven-baked potatoes make an ideal sidekick to each feast, as do the five types of gourmet tortillas—including jalapeño cheddar and garlic herb—that accompany each handheld wrap.
Brazilian churrascarias—a kind of Portuguese barbeque joint—have their roots in traditional celebrations of a successful harvest. At modern churrascarias, waiters walk around with skewers or roasted meat, cutting off all-you-can-eat portions of steak, pork, and chicken directly onto your plate. Diners interested in rounding out a years' worth of protein can find endless accompaniments at the salad bar and buffet of Brazilian hot dishes or try traditional drinks such as caipirinha or guarana, a Brazilian soda.
