Hawaii on a Plate: Honolulu chain 'L&L Hawaiian Barbecue' opens first two branches in Manila

Manila can now say "Aloha!" to an authentic Hawaiian taste with the popular Honolulu restaurant chain L&L Hawaiian Barbecue opening two branches in the Philippines: the first in Shangri-La Plaza Mall last September and the second, located at SM North EDSA, which opened this October.



Our SM North Edsa branch is now open! Find us on the Upper Ground Floor of Annex Building :) #hawaiianbbqph

L&L made popular the 'plate lunch' concept in Hawaii: a savory entrée that comes with two servings of rice and one serving of macaroni salad. The brand has evolved from its beginnings as a drive-inn Honolulu restaurant to what is now a franchise with more than 200 outlets in the US, and expanding overseas to Asian countries like Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, and the Philippines.

If you want to mix and match your proteins, Combination Plates are also available, like the Seafood Combo (P285) and BBQ Mix (P200); and since Hawaiians love Spam as much as (or maybe even more than) we do, there's Spam Musubi (P65) for your sushi-style consumption of the canned meat favorite.

Visit L&L Hawaiian Barbecue Philippines at the following locations: 5th floor of Shangri-la Mall and Upper Ground Floor of SM North EDSA Annex Building. Like L&L Hawaiian Barbecue Philippines on Facebook (/hawaiianbbqph) and follow on Instagram (@hawaiianbbqph).
