The Food at Pono Market

Pono Market in Kauai offers a great selection of expresso drinks made with Hawaiian coffee beans. Be sure to try the tasty and refreshing peppermint latte and the sweet and flavorful pumpkin spiced latte. If you are in the mood for a blended drink, they make an excellent Java chip iced latte and a fantastic Kona mocha.

There are several different bowls to choose from, including fried chicken, poke or rice. The rice bowl comes with the choice of one entrée.

If you prefer your food to be segregated and not piled into a bowl, you can get a plate. The plates come with two scoops of rice and an entrée. Specialty entrees at Pono Market in Kauai include: lau lau, which is meat and fish wrapped in taro leaves, pork, stuffed chicken, meatloaf, and cabbage for the vegetarians.

There are also a wide range of daily specials, from traditional foods such as pineapple glazed chicken and pork and peas to such unexpected treats as mac and cheese and hamburgers. You can also get a side of their fantastically creamy and fresh macaroni salad. Whatever you do, make sure to get an order of the large, crunchy, and perfectly spiced onion rings.

Pono Market also serves some traditional Japanese and Hawaiian confections, such as manju, which is a flour and rice pastry that comes with many kinds of fillings. They also have a good choice of cookies and a selection of delicious ice creams.
