A Taste Of Aloha In Bend


After reading the Source’s Restaurant Guide 2020, we had to try Aina Kauai Style Grill.  Named as Rookie Food Cart of the Year, we have to say their products did not disappoint. Located in the food cart lot associated with Bevel Brewing off Armour Road, this little tucked away gem is a Must this summer. 

We tried the Crunchy Poke bowl and the Kalua Pork. Here is the breakdown:

The Crunchy Poke bowl was incredible. The fish was fresh, the sauce used had a slight kick, the fried shrimp created a great crunch, and the kimchi and fermented veggies added a little authentic Japanese twist! For $16 we had a little piece of Hawaiian paradise right here in Central Oregon.

As for the kalua pork? Wow. Everything you’d expect and more. With a side of rice, macaroni, and a little treat of some tuna poke- this dish was fabulous.

We’d highly recommend taking time to get here early, as they often sell out daily. Current hours of operation are 12 pm to 8 pm Thursday through Monday….While supplies last!

Mahalo To our friends at Aina!
