I've come here on different occasions since my optometrist is in the same plaza and it's a convenient spot to grab a quick meal. The first time I had a chicken bowl with rice. There was a deal going on for purchasing two chicken bowls for only $7.99. It was served in the typical rice bowl fashion with a generous pile of chicken on top marinated in their teriyaki sauce topped with green onions.
I'm usually skeptical at ordering chicken at certain places since I'm afraid of the dryness. Hilo Volocano Grill proved me wrong with their moist, juicy and well marinated chicken. The green onions added a touch of texture. Another item I ordered was their half and half combo with vegetables. The half and half combination consisted of half beef and half chicken with steamed vegetables.
I'm not quite sure how all of this fit in my bowl but it was great to have the variety. The steamed vegetables were decent but the meats stood out in the bowl. The sauce they implemented has a balance of sweet and salty but was not overbearing on the protein. Hilo Volcano also offers fish dishes and brown rice is available for an additional cost. The food is cooked to order and their ingredients are fresh. There are weekly specials and their regular menu is affordable. Thank you for reading.
