Fresh Fish, Poke and Local Food Dishes Coming Soon to Hamakua Macadamia Nut Company

Hamakua Macadamia Nut Company, a retail store and visitor center for over 10 years, will soon feature the famously fresh fish, poke and local food dishes from North Kohala’s Kawaihae Kandyz. Currently causing a splash on the food scene with a flair for local fare, Kawaihae Kandyz has been garnering attention in the town of Kapa‘au for the past year and a half, winning acclaim for their signature Shoyu Poke Nachos.

Poke Nachos

The official launch date is set for Saturday, May 6, 2017 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Hamakua Macadamia Nut Company, located in Kawaihae on Highway 270 at 61-3251 Maluokalani St.

The popular eatery is owned and operated by Chef Shannon Javillonar and wife Fran. Chef Javillonar was inspired to start his own business after 10 years with a well-known hotel along the Kohala Coast. As Javillonar worked his way up, he learned the trade and crafted his talent to create “home-style cooking” with a unique take on local food.

In addition to his signature Poke Nachos, his Poke Bombs and Poke Bowls are up-and-coming local and visitor favorites. His fish is caught fresh and priced based on the current market value. All of his creations are made-to-order. Since it opened for business, Kawaihae Kandyz has blossomed with followers on social media, and earned great reviews on Yelp, Trip Advisor, Instagram and Facebook, and of course word-of-mouth.

When asked why he is looking to expand, Javillonar said “Many of my customers travel from as far as Kona, Waikoloa, the Kohala Coast and Waimea. I’ve been getting a lot of requests to open in Kawaihae so they would not have to travel to Kohala. Kawaihae is a great location and is centralized. It lets our local residents also know about Hamakua Macadamia Nut Company’s Visitor Center and Retail Store and what a hidden gem they are. It’s a win-win situation!”

Kawaihae Kandyz will be open at the Hamakua Macadamia Nut Company location in Kawaihae on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, call (808) 896-2767. , located in Kawaihae

Hamakua Macadamia Nut Co., partnered with Edmund C. Olson, is a locally owned and operated enterprise, committed to providing 100% Hawaiian macadamia nuts, 100% of the time, in ways that are economically efficient and environmentally responsible.  Their goal is to provide a future for the growers, jobs for Hawai‘i Island workers and produce the highest-quality products to sell to the world.  For more information, visit www.HawnNut.com.
