Growing up in Hawaii, local boy, Chef Russell Siu was fortunate to travel the world through his work, experiencing different cultures and cuisines. This inspired him to bring new tastes and techniques and fuse them with Hawaii's local eats.  With the concept of healthy eating options, using local products, preparing in-house menu items and putting a twist on local favorites, Kaka'ako Kitchen was 'born' in 1995.

A few words from chef ....                        

As we prepare to close our doors on February 28th ... ... I find myself reflecting and being so thankful for the opportunity to share my love of food with those who have walked through our doors over the last 20 years.

Your response to and support of my crazy idea to bring "gourmet dishes" to the world of plate lunches, was beyond my expectation and I am thankful.

We will continue to offer some of Kakaako Kitchen's favorites through our catering department, so remember us for your special event or business function.
