Located in Kakaako, Karens Kitchen has been locally owned and operated since 1994. Karens is a casual take out style restaurant but also offers a seating area. People often say the food takes them back to "school kine days", especially about the Baked Spaghetti. The menu ranges from local favorites like Shortrib Stew and Shoyu Pork to Fresh Roasted Turkey and Pulehu Ribs.
