Diamond Head Kitchen
Jacob Hansen, a surfer born and raised on Oahu's North Shore, grew up eating huli huli chicken. After long days spent on the water, he and his friends found that the savory dish hit the spot. But it wasn't until Hansen tasted whole, fire-roasted chicken during a surf trip to Mexico that he discovered how tasty the dish could be. He wanted to open his own roasted-chicken restaurant, and then set out to develop a recipe. Over the next 15 years, he traveled to more than 30 countries—including France, Africa, Thailand, and a secret island nation inhabited only by chickens—sampling roasted poultry and native spices in each new place.
Today, Hansen serves up his own version of fire-roasted chicken at Diamond Head Kitchen. He incorporates seasonings and techniques picked up during his years of travel to make juicy, crisp-skinned chicken that literally falls off the bone as it's eaten. Diners can order whole chickens, portions of white or dark meat, or Moa chicken burgers with toppings such as teriyaki sauce or salsa. For a sweeter note, try Hansen's other specialty—nutrient-rich acai bowls.
