The Hibachi is a small specialty market in Kailua. Open since 2009, it’s a place to make a quick stop for poke, meats to grill, snacks, and spirits. They also serve grill plates and burgers.

What we bought
Thick-cut bone-in rib-eye steak, limu poke, lomi sea asparagus, clam dip, Hokkaido rich butter chips, yuzu miso sauce.
