"When you walk in and look into the kitchen, you'll see rows and rows of beef short ribs hanging above the stove tops. These ribs are marinated and then hung to dry, intensifying the marinade and natural beef flavor. They are then grilled to order."
"This small hole-in-the-wall serves quite an array of classic Hawaiian foods. My favorite dish is the homemade short rib pipikaula, a very flavorful jerky which is neither tough nor dried out. I would typically add a dash of chili pepper water and a scoop of steamed white rice."
