Feast your eyes, folks, on the Fresh Catch Wasabi Sandwich from Annie's Burgers in Kainaliu, Hawaii. This one featured mahi mahi. This baby made my Top 5 Best Fish Sandwiches Ever list. Sure, the fish was fresh, and naturally, they make their own pickles and sauces and yes, they source locally-grown vegetables, and of course, that purple potato salad was amazing. But here was what put this sandwich over the top: That tempura onion ring on top. That just totally made the sandwich.
It's no surprise that Annie's has collected the "Best Burger in West Hawaii" awards in 2011 through 2014.
Mr. L and I also sampled the Chicken Guacamole Sandwich, which was fantastic. I loved their guacamole, the grilled chicken, and the home-cut fries. Here is a photo:
Service was great. The bathrooms were spotless. Everything is clean, bright, and cheerful. Try to head for the back section, where there is a view -- and trees, coming up through the floor. Open every day, 11 - 8. Mango Court, 79-7460 Mamalahoa Hwy #105, Kealekekua, Hawaii. (808) 324-6000.
