A note about serious food allergies

"Kahuna" has two meanings: a powerful person or a large wave. This burger is neither a CEO, nor made of water, but it is both powerful and large with flavor, from the sweet sticky pineapple on top, the drizzle of teriyaki, peppery arugula, and gooey cheese. Surf's up for the biggest and best Kahuna burger this side of Maui.
