This roadside shack just past Koki Beach might be the best place to eat in Hana—but it’s not really a restaurant and we can’t vouch that it will be open when you arrive. Hulihuli chicken is a mouthwatering Hawaiian version of barbecue. “Huli” means “turn” as in, turn over the flame. Place your order for chicken, pork, ribs, or (my favorite) the enchilada special. Then park yourself at the picnic table facing scenic little Alau Island and count your blessings.
