McKenna sits down at L&L with Social Media influencer and comedian Kili So Silly. Kili has made millions of people laugh all over the world, but he keeps it local in Oahu. After a hilarious impromptu Spam musubi eating contest, Kili Talks Story with McKenna. “I’m from... born and raised here on Oahu. Grew up in Waipahu, Ewa Beach area.” “My humor is like a mix of local, any kine stuff, like I try to relate to people in Hawaii, people on the mainland, or just everybody in general. Whatever’s on my mind, I just put it out there and just make everybody laugh.”
Kili talks about his inspirations and what it is about Polynesian culture that some people love getting to see though his comedy, “When I share more of my culture, that’s like the side of me that’s keeping it real. That’s what I grew up on, my surroundings, I share what I've been through in my life. Pretty much it’s all real, just keeping it real, sharing my culture and what I grew up in.”

In the early years, L&L Hawaiian Barbecue was a successful chain of drive-in restaurants with a reputation for serving fresh plate lunches throughout the Hawaiian islands. In late 1999, our founders – Johnson Kam and Eddie Flores, Jr. – introduced their signature, Asian and American fusion take on the classic plate lunch to the residents of California. Since then, the concept has found fans around the world and there are close to 200 L&L Hawaiian Barbecue restaurants in Hawaii, California, Washington, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Oregon, Utah, Texas, New York, Tennessee, Guam and Japan. Needless to say, in addition to the fresh, culturally-commingling flavors of Hawaii, every L&L meal is infused with the warmth of aloha – the legendary spirit of welcome that makes every guest feel at home.
