If you`re looking for a good, solid burger stop by Kua Aina. Originally from Hawaii, their light wooden interior, island music and colorful Hawaiin goods adorning the walls makes you feel like you walked into a burger joint on the island. Their large hamburger patties, seasoned with the owner`s original and secret spices are a hit in Japan and abroad. They give you the option to select a 1/3lb (about 150g) or a 1/2lb (about 230g) burger, bread (kaiser roll, multi-grain wheat or rye) with your choice of toppings (Cheese 118 yen, Pineapple 100 yen, Pickles 118 yen, Bacon 236 yen or Avocado 236 yen).
We ordered their signature avocado burger set, a 1/3lb (about 150g) burger topped with fresh lettuce, tomato, a slice of grilled onion, mayonnaise and large slices of avocado (1155 yen) with crunchy shoe string fries and beverage, and their kid`s pancake lunch set with their special guava and tapioca drink for an extra 91 yen. They offer an extensive sandwich menu with roast beef, pastrami, mahi mahi, roast turkey and BLT to name a few as well as special quarter pound burgers (113g); vocado basil burger, the locomoco burger, teriyaki burger and a quarter hamburger. Popcorn shrimp, soups, salads, pancakes and island spirits (kona beer, ales and lagers) are also available.
