Innovating The Hawaiian Palate Since 2017

Kiawe Outdoor was born from the desire to return to the rich tradition of real Hawaiian cooking. This has always been outdoor, with fire. We focus on local food sources paired with incredible wines and craft beverages designed for each event. Because we source the food locally, using invasive species such as Axis Deer cooked over wild Kiawe wood, every event is different.

Yeshua is an Advanced Sommelier born on the Big Island and raised on Maui. As a local boy he understands the importance of preserving the Hawaiian culture and telling the story of Aloha the best way he knows how, through his cooking.
