After hearing good things about this place, we had it on our short list of restaurants we wanted to try. So when a Groupon came for it last week, Jake bought it immediately. We got a $30 gift certificate for $15. "Modern Tiki" describes it exactly. Nice, clean modern take on a Hawaiian theme.
Hula's has two menus. A Monday through Friday menu and a condensed Saturday/Sunday brunch menu. Since we went on a Saturday, we were there for the brunch. We both ordered lunch-style items, but noticed that a lot of customers ordered breakfast, and we thought all their plates looked delicious.
While the menu is small, we actually had a really hard time deciding what to order. Everything sounded so good. I went with the Mango Chicken Salad. It was a ceasar salad topped with mangos and a nicely seasoned (kinda spicy) blackened chicken breast. It was very tasty and very large.
Jake ordered the Luau Pork Sandwich, which is described on the menu as "heaven on a bun". Sweet pork topped with cole slaw. The flavor was amazing - absolutely fantastic. He ordered it with a basket of sweet potato fries - which was big enough to share.
We will definitely be back, coupon or not. The menu is so diverse that we're anxious to try everything on it.
