The owners of Kau Kau Corner, a Hawaiian “plate lunch” restaurant nestled in Alameda, aim to treat their customers like family. To them, that means hefty servings of rich Hawaiian specialties. In Hawaii, “plate lunch” refers to a plate with macaroni salad, rice, and your choice of barbecued or smoked meat. At Kau Kau Corner, those smoky meat options include Hawaiian-style barbecued chicken, beef sirloin or short ribs, kalua pork (lightly seasoned smoked, pulled-pork), and katsu chicken (breaded, deep-fried chicken cutlet). The restaurant also offers other Hawaiian favorites such as “loco moco,” a hamburger placed on a bed of rice topped with two runny eggs and thick gravy. This casual but comfortable restaurant is an easy and tasty place to get your fix of island cuisine in the East Bay.
