   Usually, the only knowledge and exposure to Hawaiian food that we get, comes from a short stay in the Islands, a Pulp Fiction reference or a few stereotypes, but Lincoln Park has its own little piece of paradise with Aloha Eats on Clark and Deming. Located at 2534 N Clark, this gem is open from 11am-10pm everyday except Tuesday.

   This small Hawaiian themed restaurant offers an extensive menu of Hawaiian favorites, colonial inspired treats and a few other basic staples of American cuisine.

   One of the favorites of most customers is the chicken katsu. What's a katsu? Katsu is a specific type of breading that is sweeter and crunchier than regular breaded items one would typically find in many foods. The chicken is hand-filleted and served with a sweet barbeque sauce and a side of your choice ranging from french fries, rice or one of the best macaroni salads I've tried on the North Side.

   Another favorite dish consists of a bed of rice, hamburger patties and a couple of eggs on top of the patties, which is then covered in gravy and according to customers is absolutely delicious.

   However, one dish is a complete failure. The noodles in broth dish sounds delicious to most when described, but one will quickly find out that the soup is a large bowl of Ramen noodles with cut up chicken and a $5 price tag. The soup comes with no sort of side or bread, and gives a reason to say that it is a real disappointment.

   Overall, the quaint place on Clark has a great atmosphere, super friendly staff, very affordable prices and offers a setting that allows customers to eat with a group of people, or dine solo without feeling weird. Aloha Eats is a great place to eat, but be warned, there is no bathroom for customers.
