Hawaiian plate lunch in SF Bay Area
- achefsbest Jan 22, 2011 02:45 PM
Just got back from Hawaii and now I'm missing the plate lunches. Does anyone know of a good home-style lunch plate place preferably in the E. Bay. I know about L & L, so something besides that would be greatly appreciated.
I like Mauna Loa in downtown San Rafael. I usually get the BBQ chicken plate, but the short ribs, kalua pork and loco moco are all good. Your main comes with 2 scoops of rice + choice of macaroni salad, cabbage salad, or steamed broccoli. They recently installed a shave ice machine - not as fine as what you will find in Hawaii, but pretty good for the mainland!
I had lunch today at Mauna Loa in San Rafael, with their Kalua Pork, small order for $7.25, with sauteed cabbage, rice, and cole slaw (option with macaroni salad). I'm certainty no expert on Kalua Pork, but this was quite tasty, tender, and not greasy. The cole slaw was a tasty mayonnaise type. Here's a cell phone photo.

Red A Bakery on Clement Street has Hawaiian plate lunches.
Used to be Eva's on Clement, was the daughter of the originator of L&L, but I understand it's now closed. I never really saw much business there.

Which part of the East Bay? The only place I've eaten at is Templebar, which is good, but I'm not sure if they do lunch.
