Eating House 1849
Icon Roy Yamaguchi helped popularize and mainstream Hawaiian-fusion food a generation ago, but takes a detour on the Big Island with dishes inspired by Portuguese, Spanish and Filipino flavors. This "plantation cuisine" evokes the immigrant foods served in the mid-19th century, when the state's first restaurant—a Honolulu establishment called "Eating House"—opened. Yamaguchi brings some serious chops to the table: he trained at the Culinary Institute of America, before serving as executive chef in Los Angeles's Le Serene and winning a James Beard award. The menu shifts seasonally, according to what farmers, foragers, ranchers and fishermen produce. Expect delicacies like a beef-and-wild-boar burger and pork lumpia with green papaya. Cap it all off with cinnamon-dusted "malasadas" (Portuguese donuts) with Koloa rum sauce!
