We did a lunch order for the office this past week! Since I had to run an errand in Kalihi, Pongo’s Kitchen was the perfect choice! Have you folks tried this place before? Great plate lunch spot that is frequented by a lot of construction workers, that’s a pretty good sign that this place is good. Kalihi remains the mecca for some mean hole in the wall grinds. Let’s get to the pictures already! A lot of pictures are coming, you have been warned.
Regular Roasted Chicken Thighs with Spicy Shoyu Vinegar Plate – $7.75. Winners! My cousin goes nuts for this plate and my coworker enjoyed it too! They run out of this early so put your order in before you go!
Baked Ahi and Sesame Chicken Combo Plate – $8.50, the coworker who got this didn’t enjoy the chicken too much. He said it was a bit dry and overcooked.
Baked Ahi and Guava Chicken Plate – $8.50. This was definitely the most popular order for the day. Everyone who got it seemed to like it a lot! I’ll bet it is one of their best sellers!
Regular Grilled Prime New York Strip Steak with Spicy Shoyu Vinegar Onion Sauce Plate – $8.25. Delicious! This was my plate – it really hit the spot!
They offer corn, mac or toss salad as the side. The corn is fresh corn, not canned! Yummy. I wish we worked by Kalihi, we could do more lunch runs there! Word of warning, they have no parking so it’s definitely grab and go. Best to bring someone with you.
