SquareMeal Review of Kua'aina

Burgers come with a welcoming ‘aloha’ at this Soho offshoot of a long-running Hawaiian eatery on the island’s North Shore – a favourite of President Obama, apparently. Pronounced ‘koo-a eye-na’, Kua’aina honours its hula original with a bamboo roof, tropical ceiling fans and authentic Dick Brewer surfboards, while the food is based on signature recipes and marinades. Burger riffs involve pineapple (naturally), avocado and Ortega chillis as well as the usual bacon and cheese, but the venue is equally famous for its char-grilled sandwiches – perhaps teriyaki chicken breast, roast turkey or peppered pastrami with grilled peppers. Various salads add to the choice, and US-themed desserts span everything from high-calorie pancakes with maple syrup to low-fat frozen yoghurts.
