At its peak on opening service Tuesday, November 15, lunch — served from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. — saw a line out the door, and those poké bowls were soon sold out. The Colburns aren't going it alone; they now have a staff of three employees, which, judging by customer enthusiasm, may soon grow to to meet the demand.
"We're using these first two weeks to really figure out what we need," Louie noted once the lunch rush had ceased. "I think I found 25 things that could have been adjusted to make it run smoother — as smoothly as we want it to — today, but the love from the regulars and from the diners was all so great. It's good to be back."
In addition to the poké bowls, Ohana's menu boasts Hawaiian specialties like spam musubi, POG (a canned passion fruit and guava drink) and bento boxes. See the new Ohana — just across 15th Street from the original lunch window — for yourself during lunch today. But go early to beat the rush.
