レインボードライブイン カリヒに出店しました。


We all know the iconic Rainbow Drive-In off Kapahulu (3308 Kanaina Ave., Honolulu, HI 96815). Founded by Seiju and Ayako Ifuku 57 years ago (in 1961), Rainbow’s has become a Hawaii institution for those locals and tourists alike seeking the best in local kine grindz.

Today (May 2nd, 2018), Rainbow’s has officially opened its doors to a second location on the corner of Houghtailing and N School Street in Kalihi (1339 N School Street, Honolulu, HI 96817). They are starting off with manageable hours of operation from 11am-3pm, but will increase those hours as they get through the initial bumps that every new operation goes through.

The property has its own parking lot, Makai of the (North School Street) building, but it was closed today, perhaps due to any last minute paving or setting that is still taking place. Once they open the lot, it appears as though there will be about 15 stalls or so available for patrons. From the signage, it also looks like Gyu-Kaku, Aloha Cones and KandK Kitchen (currently down the road at 1223 N School Street) will have future homes in this very building. Kalihi is getting blessed with some (more) mean eats in the near future.

Below are some shots from today’s first day of operations for Rainbow Drive-In Kalihi. Enjoy!
