Here’s a little secret. Hawaiian barbecue is really just meat swaddled in a teriyaki sauce. L&L Barbecue claims to have coined the term for that sweet-and-tangy reddish-brown sauce, generally made from shoyu (a soy sauce), sugar, garlic, and ginger and served on a scoop of white or brown rice. On the side, don’t expect corn on the cob, coleslaw, baked beans, or rolls. Instead it’s accompanied by a scoop of macaroni salad or tossed salad. None of it comes on fancy plates; think Styrofoam or aluminum foil instead. Las Vegas offers a hot bed of Hawaiian barbecue restaurants since it does have one of the highest populations of Hawaiians off the island.
