Hawaiian food is pretty much unknown in the Midwest – not much of a Hawaiian population I guess. The mixed plate lunch is a staple of Hawaiian cuisine. It usually consists of macaroni salad, scoops of white rice and an assorted meat primary dish – anything from BBQ pork to fresh fish. One of L’s favorite places to get an excellent mixed plate lunch is Aloha Mixed plate (1285 Front Street, Lahaina, HI), though there are many fine options. Anyone know of a mixed plate place in Chicago?
