Back Home In Lahaina’s interior - complete with string lighting, street signs, and giant paintings of humpback whales splashing in the ocean - looks a bit like a restaurant you might find in an aquarium. Don’t let the cheesy aesthetic fool you, this casual spot in Carson serves tasty Hawaiian staples across-the-board. The loco moco is one of our favorite versions in LA and their Hawaiian-style fried chicken is sweet, crunchy, and flat-out addicting. A slice of the haupia cheesecake at the end is mandatory.
