spreading the aloha, one plate lunch at a time
Aloha is a way of life. It encompasses so much more than expressing love or greeting someone. Aloha, simply put, is joyfully sharing life-with each other, with everything. Our goal is to spread the aloha, one plate lunch at a time. For us, food has always made a bad day better and turned frowns into smiles. We hope our food will do the same for you.

Chef/owner Codi Nishimoto's love for food and feeding people is rivaled only by her love of the islands. Hawaii born and raised, Codi moved to the mainland to study Forestry at HSU, only to drop out early and discover a passion for cooking. Wanting to take her passion further, she secured a job training under celebrity chef Lee Anne Wong (Top Chef, Kokohead Cafe), where she quickly learned the skills and techniques implemented on the truck to this day.
