Island Grinds

Two new Hawaiian fast-food joints are bringing down-home Asian fusion to Houston.

You can choose from several flavors of Hawaiian Sun juice drinks at Aloha Grill, including my favorite, "Pass-O-Guav." There's also iced green tea and the regular soft drink choices.

Talk about your recession-era budget lunch. At the Aloha Grill, there's a wide selection of Hawaiian plate lunches for under five dollars. You can get a teriyaki bowl for three-fifty. At Little Island Grill, lunches start at $4.60.

Granted, the Formica tables, walk-up counters and serve-yourself drinks don't offer much in the way of atmosphere. But this isn't fine dining. And when you compare what you get at these two Hawaiian fast-food joints to what you'd get for the same money at McDonald's, you have to agree: The island grind is da kine.
