There are just a couple of picnic tables on a deck outside the kitchen window of this cheerily bohemian spot in Old Kapaa Town, so plan on ordering your food to go. The laidback Kapaa hippie vibe means waits are sometimes long, and the kitchen can be inconsistent, but when the stars align, it’s a wonderfully Kauaian experience. The signature dish is the ahi nori wrap, a massive sushi burrito in a green tortilla: seared tuna with rice, cucumber, nori, wasabi cream sauce, pickled ginger, and soy sauce. Tofu and chicken are the only other proteins on the limited, mostly organic menu, which includes a mild yellow coconut curry with island vegetables and satay plates with peanut sauce. The hibiscus iced tea and lemonade are especially refreshing on a hot day.
