Kiawe Grill B.B.Q & Burgers

If you’re in the mood for barbecue but don’t want to bother pulling out your Weber Grill from the garage, Kiawe Grill BBQ & Burger is the perfect place for you. You can enjoy the flavors of meat freshly grilled over a kiawe wood fire without any of the hassle. We ordered take out and enjoyed the amazing aroma of kiawe smoke BBQ that filled our car on the ride home.

Their menu is a combination of a Korean BBQ plate lunch place plus a hamburger joint. Here, the Korean side dishes are self service with a limit of 14 ounces and a scale to monitor yourself (honor system). Not to worry though, 14 ounces is still a good amount of food. They give you a separate small container for your choice of 4 side dishes, and that means there’s more room in the large container for your main dish and rice. Thats’a  lot of food.

I ordered Kiawe Grill Lamb Chops ($9.95) which included 4 large bone-in chops over a layer of rice. For my sides, I chose mac salad, kim chee, choi sum, and daikon. There’s enough food here for at least 2 people.

My husband decided to try the Kiawe Grill Ostrich Patty Plate ($9.75) which comes with a grilled hot dog (I suppose just in case you discover you don’t like ostrich). Ostrich tastes like somewhere in between beef and turkey; not bad at all.

    Erin: Yeah, you should try it! Try the regular burger just to compare with Teddy’s.

    Sachi: Yes, it was my first time there. We always ate Chinese next door, so we never came here before.
