At Kua'Aina Sandwich, success lies between two halves of a fresh kaiser roll. The shop opened in Hawaii in 1975, and the popularity of its burgers, sandwiches, and fresh cut shoestring fries caused Kua'Aina to expand to a third Oahu location and to franchises in London and Japan. Perhaps people noticed that Kua'Aina's cooks aren't afraid to play around with the traditional burger toppings. Sure, they make classic 1/3- and 1/2- pound cheeseburgers, but they also add accents such as pineapple and avocado.
Cheese and avocados make repeat appearances atop Kua'Aina's charbroiled sandwiches. Toasted multi-grain or hearth rye bread serves as the foundation for the tuna-and-avocado sandwich, pastrami sandwich, or a combination BLT-avocado sandwich so delicious that it defies the normal laws of acronyms.
