Owners Chef Gene and Dana are bringing Hawaii Street Food to the mainland, starting with Costa Mesa. 'Ai Pono Cafe is simple and clean, they are a fast-casual restaurant, but the two promise to all who dine that there is nothing fast-casual about their food. Born and raised in Hawai'i, Gene and Dana seek to have you feel the honesty of their aloha as you step foot into the cafe and enjoy the many different flavors on the menu.
Not sure where to start? We recommend the Dirty Lickin' Korean Chicken, Chicken Katsu, and Poke Bowl.
