Bite of Las Vegas takes over the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center on September 14 with more than 40 local and national eateries slinging everything from Japanese teppanyaki and Mediterrannean cuisine to burgers and funnel cakes. Considering Las Vegas is dubbed Hawaii’s “ninth island,” it’s only fitting the festival also boasts ample servings of island fare.

Aloha Kitchen, a local favorite with five locations in the Valley, will be on hand to serve their “onolicous” delights. The restaurant is known for its combination plates, which features a fusion of Hawaiian, Japanese, Korean and Filipino favorites such as kalua pig, teriyaki chicken, kalbi short ribs, and adobo, all served with rice and macaroni salad. The local chain is also adored for its sandwiches and bowls.

While summer will be winding down come September 14, you’ll still need something to take the heat off. Here comes Kona Ice comes to the rescue. The mobile franchise serves up Hawaiian-style shaved ice. For the unitiated, think of a snow cone but with shaved instead of crushed ice and tropical syrups. With a variety of flavors to mix and match, you can create your own unique concoction. How sweet is that?
