|Menu (as of August 2011)|
I requested a take-out order for one mixed plate: Mauna Loa chicken (chicken pieces in sweet-spicy sauce) and kalua pig with fresh grilled vegetables and mac salad ($8.95 + $2 for veggie substitute).

with veggies and mac salad
The food was OK. I did like the chicken...very flavorful there. The crunchy, vibrant grilled veggies were a welcome break from the monotonous chewing of teriyaki chicken. The kalua pig was respectable, but could have used a bit more salt. After all the hubbub to get my mac salad, it was just average at best. The mac salad could have used a bit more salt and pepper, and perhaps some shredded carrot for flavor, color, and texture contrast. Perhaps it's because I didn't get rice, but I thought $10.95 was pushing the pricey side for the amount of food I got.
It's the same menu as the Beaverton location, so again, they are missing a bunch of my favorites, such as a Loco Moco and shoyu chicken. The two ladies taking care of orders were very friendly and apologized for any inconveniences.
The food is basically the same as the Beaverton location, but this place gets a lower rating for now due to the slip-ups on my order. To be fair, they just opened the Salem location and are still training new employees, so I may consider going back at least one more time to see if things get better. 5/10
