Say Aloha To Pineapples At Islands

by The Editors on March 22, 2017

It’s Pineapple season at our favorite locally owned burger chain Islands Restaurant (they’re based Carlsbad, right?) And to kick off the season they’re loading up on some special pineapple menu items.

Starting April 1 and running through May 31, pineapple lovers will find a limited time Pineapple Pairing Menu with suggested pairings of popular pineapple dishes from the main menu. Favorites include the Hawaiian Burger, topped with fresh grilled pineapple and teriyaki sauce, paired with the Big Island Iced Tea; the Yaki Tacos, topped with a house-made grilled pineapple salsa, paired with a refreshing Piña Colada; and the Hoisin Beach Bowl, made with chunks of fresh grilled pineapple and grilled vegetables, served over brown rice with mahi mahi or chicken and paired with a signature Mai Tai. Each pairing is meant to complement and bring out the sweet and savory flavors of the fruit.

If you’re into pineapples, of watching surf videos while you eat, stop buy islands and go Hawaiian. For the official word from the restaurant that goes through over 180,000 pineapples a year, click the link.
