We heard about Kaaloa's at the Royal Kona Coffee visitor center. A couple in the parking lot highly recommended them and were just two blocks away. It was the best food we had during our 8 day visit to the Big Island. I had the Lau lau, potato macaroni salad and rice. It was amazing and I wished it was closer to Kona. The restaurant is a very low key home like environment. Nothing fancy but a real authentic taste of Polynesia made by a native that knows how to cook. I highly recommend it but it can be hard to see from the road. So if in doubt ask someone at the Royal Kona Coffee Vistor Center and they will tell you.

This is a little hole-in-the-wall, family-owned restaurant. I heard about this place when asking around about laulau -- a traditional Hawaiian dish of pork wrapped in Ti (taro) leaves and then steamed. We went there at about 2pm and the place looks closed but it's not (just go and knock!). It turns out that they only have laulau plates left, which is perfect! Even though it was previously frozen, the dish tastes pretty amazing. For 8 bucks, I'd come back again the next time I visit Big Island. The ambiance weren't great, but we didn't happen to care. Also, the lady (presumably the owner) was very friendly. They also have a puppy that looks just like our dog, so that's a plus too. ;) (Btw, the place is pretty easy to miss and our GPS was a little off, so just watch out for the restaurant sign.)

I love Super J's lau lau. I love them so much, I have to take them back home with me to mainland. My favorite is the pork ones. Good Meat, NOT, full of FAT like at other places. The chicken ones are great too. I visit Kona once a year and always buy some to freeze and take back to California or Arizona. Been doing this for years. Wrap a dozen in blue ice pack in newspaper and another plastic bag and finally in a brown paper bag. I put in my suitcase (watch you do not go over the airline weight limit). When I get back to Pasadena or Phoenix, the lau lau are still frozen, i put i freezer and later, I have special friends and relatives over for dinner. They ALWAYS leave with smile on their face!

NIce family take-out place. An unimposing restaurant to say the least [I agree it can be hard to spot, about a mile north of the junction of Middle Keei Road, on Rt 11, Mamalahoa belt road], but if you are getting the best Lau Lau, Poi and Lomi Lomi Salmon on the Island to take-out to the beach, who cares. It is very clean, and fresh and you can often see Mrs. Kaaloa and her family making the ingredients on a large table inside if you come in the morning. Come too late, close to 5 or 6pm, and they may have run out, as she makes the best. Hope the taro harvest is good this year!
