Diamond Head Market & Grill
Kelvin Ro used to cook at the governor’s mansion; now he serves dishes that pay homage to Hawaiian plate lunch classics such as teriyaki beef and char siu pork, along with occasional diversions like portobello mushroom burgers, grilled tuna steak with wasabi aioli, and a vegetable medley of kabocha squash, zucchini, and eggplant.
Don’t miss: Chef Ro’s tangy Korean barbecued chicken, one of his signature dishes, is paired with fried pork wontons and spicy kimchi; wash it down with some Hawaiian lemonade, sweetened with tropical blossom honey from the Hawaii Island Honey Company.
