Holoholo Grill, a collaboration with well known Hawaiian chef Sam Choy, has opened at Koloa Landing Resort at Poipu.

Choy, born in Honolulu and winner of a James Beard America's Classics award, has crafted a menu highlighting fresh island cuisine that the restaurant dubs "Hawaiian comfort food."

Dishes include Kauai-style fish tacos with grilled fresh catch, tangy pineapple slaw and topped with Sriracha mayo, and barbecued ono on a bed of purple mashed potatoes in a shiitake broth. The fish and chips is made with tempura-battered Mahi mahi accompanied by a cilantro slaw. The lunch and dinner menus include Choy's signature poke bowls, and the breakfast menu includes loco moco, a Hawaiian staple of beef with eggs and onions, smoothies, banana macadamia nut pancakes and a lineup of fancy toasts.

Holoholo Grill is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week.
