Highway Inn at SALT Kaka’ako

fried akule, poi $4.95, small lomi salmon $4.95, & squid lu’au $5.95

A couple weeks ago, a few friends and I stopped by Highway Inn in Kaka’ako for dinner. Many locals are familiar with the Hawaiian food eatery, as they have been in Waipahu for decades and are known for their delicious Hawaiian food. The much newer Kaka’ako location has been around for almost 6 years.

We were happy to have a short wait, especially since it was a Friday night. I was starving and looking forward to my fried akule, poi, lomi salmon, and squid lu’au, which were all ordered a la carte since there wasn’t a set meal with these items. It did not disappoint and satisfied my Hawaiian food craving!

Kalua Pig Combo Plate $14.95

My friend ordered the Kalua Pig Combo Plate. Combos come with poi or rice, steamed sweet potato, haupia, and choice of lomi salmon (pictured here), potato-mac salad, or green salad.

Chicken Lau Lau Combo Plate $16.95

My other friend got a similar looking plate with the laulau instead of kalua pig and rice instead of poi. We were all super satisfied with our Hawaiian food.

There’s a few places in town that I would recommend for Hawaiian food, and Highway Inn is definitely one of them. We had great customer service with a friendly server. There’s also lots of paid parking available fronting the restaurant or in the large SALT parking deck.
