Fans only have to wait less than a month until the eastside’s Twain Swenson Plaza will host a menu of Hawaiian and Filipino food, all “made with lots of aloha.”

Not a neighborhood renowned as a dining destination, Lefty-J’s Island Favorites will debut at the intersection of Twain Avenue and Swenson Street and offer “favorite flavors of home served at comfortable prices.” The low-key retail hub is already home to the Thai cuisine of Thai D To Go and the Ethiopian menu of Axum.

Lefty-J’s takes over the former home Al’s Donuts and has been previewing future dishes on social media, including a variety of familiar plate combinations, plus “chicken afritada,” pork adobo, or menudo, Hawaiian mac salad and the Phillipine staple pinakbet. Menu selections can also be picked up to-go.

An exact opening date or operating hours have yet to be announced.
