Squid Lūʻau 

Squid Lūʻau  is a common staple at many lūʻau.  It can be made with squid, or more commonly, octopus, which is what many locally refer to as "squid."

Local Kohala tako (Japanese for octopus) is braised until tender and char-grilled.  Taro leaves (aka "lūʻau") and coconut milk compose the sauce, with ʻinamona (roasted kukui nuts) as garnish.   

Most of the tako served throughout Hawaiʻi is imported, but we only servce locally-caught tako.
