FOODIE FRIDAY // KeAloha’s Kitchen – Hawaiian Eats in Covington,Kentucky

If you can’t go to Hawaii this Summer, you may as well pick up some seriously authentic eats from KeAloha’s Kitchen, Located in Covington, Kentucky. This walk up maybe small in size, but large in flavor, and will invigorate your taste buds with much needed Hawaiian Ohana. So lets start on what to order when making the drive over the Ohio river to Covington, Kentucky. We ordered the Kalua pig, Hawaiian style marinated pulled pork with cabbage and onions. Definitely also order the Pineapple -teriyaki brisket, the tomato-cucumber salad ( my favorite salad this summer when paired with meats, so refreshing ). Also, step outside of your comfort zone if you have not had Hawaiian food before, and check out the large loco moco, two all beef patties on top of a bed of rice, smothered in brown gravy with two eggs over easy. Try the spam musubi and the pineapple teriyaki short ribs. As if your order list isn’t long enough ( mind you I am pregnant, so I am down for all the eats right now, if you would like to chop of your order into a couple different trips the “norms” should do that 🙂 As always to drink pair it with a Hawaiian sun, or head next door to eat and drink at Pandemonium – a bar which is connected to KeAloha’s. You can also find the owners and family members of KeAloha working there, so literally it’s family in both establishments. So check out mom and pop eats from Hawaii, KeAloha’s Kitchen food is more than ono, ‘ONO (ō-nō) In Hawaii, it describes food as delicious.
