If you try something new, you might really enjoy it, even if it's filling balloons with Hot Wheels and throwing them off a bridge to see if they'll float. Try some authentic Hawaiian cuisine with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Hawaiian fare at Shakas Hawaiian Flavors in Alhambra. Showcasing flavors of the archipelago formerly known as the Sandwich Islands, Shakas melds fast-casual dining with island-time easiness. Guests can chose from counter, sit-down, or late-night service before sampling typhoons of beef and poultry dishes that conjure up delectable mouth storms. Round, Hawaiian influences circle the signature Shakas Plate, which includes cuts of teriyaki steak, three sesame chicken wings, homemade chinese chicken salad, and Spam musubi—Spam and rice bundled with nori and restraint ($11.95). Shakas's decorated 442nd Combo ($10.95) pays homage to the heroic all-Asian combat unit of World War II, allowing diners to select two of eight traditional Hawaiian dishes which blend sweeter, Pacific Rim flavors with fiery rivers of lava curry.
This Groupon is not valid for alcohol or the "buy one, get one special" on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
- No matter -- they've got huge plates of Hawaiian grinds, happy hour specials, fruity soju drinks and reasonable prices -- what's not to like? – Pat, Eating L.A.
