Da Emu Hut Moved in Late 2013

In another thread very recently 3chi mentioned Da Emu Hut which reminds me, and I have not seen it posted prior, that......

Da Emu Hut Cafe has moved from it's longtime location in Hanapepe, near turnoff to Salt Pond.

It did not move too far as Yelp indicates it is now in Eleele Shopping Center.

Note: Above link mentions new location but map currently shows old location.)

"Emu" - now that is a funny typo. I heard ostrich tastes good, but if you say emu laulau in Hawaii, you're going to confuse some folks.

It took a while for them to re-open...apparently debated if they would even re-open for more than catering for a while. Thankfully, thay have chosen to be open to the public again. It is in the corner of Ele'ele Shopping Center where the Thai place used to be.

It really is no longer an eat-in establishment - there are only a couple of picnic tables inside for those who want to eat there. But it has ALWAYS been a terrific take-out option!! And that's mainly what they are doing now. Hours are shorter, as well, but I can't remember right now what the sign says.

Regardless - Da Imu Hut is BACK!!...and that is good news. Best kalua pig and mac salad on the island! And no EMU...

My husband really missed the Thai place! I'll have to tell him about this place since he's always looking for a good lunch spot near Port Allen.

Emu is actually quite tasty. As is kangaroo.

And while we're speaking of food, has the Hanapepe Café really reopened for dinner on Friday nights? Anyone been?

3chis - there is a new restaurant there - the name is letters, like DCM or something. I haven't been or heard from anyone.

22kauai - they are open Friday nights - although she cancelled last night because of the bridge issue there, but I haven't heard anything more. Sorry. Maybe I'll try to drag my DH down there this month!
