Now this is a hole in the wall—hence the local nickname for a long-lived Mexican takeout window here, which the Kauai-reared Mexican-American chef Daniel Hurtado officially adopted in 2011. Portions are huge but ingredients are fresh, including housemade chips and guacamole. It’s also relatively healthful: Beans are vegan and the rice is brown. Wasabi cream on the fresh fish taco (recommended) is about the only local twist; wash it down with a Mexican Coke or pop into neighboring Kukuiula Market for a smoothie from the juice bar at the rear.
