Aloha Hawaiian BBQ is a Hawaiian restaurant in Costa Mesa. The sheer magnificence of their "plate lunch" cannot be denied. The word "plate" is a misnomer, by the way, especially here. What you get in their Hawaiian BBQ Mix is more like a trough in which kalbi, hunks of chicken and a formidable hill of sliced barbecue beef are piled high with rice and mac salad--food designed to make new Hawaiian Islands out of the people who can finish it. They offer smaller portions called "mini meals" but you might as well just act like a man and do the full-on plates...and then quietly pack the leftovers to eat at home for dinner. If you think you ought to eat more fish, get the mahi mahi, a massive portion of the best deep-fried fish filets that requires not even a drop of tartar sauce. Is it healthier? Not even in the slightest.
