HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Adela’s Country Eatery, a takeout eatery in Kaneohe, sourced local produce such as ‘ulu (breadfruit), ube (sweet potato), malunggay (moringa), avocado and kalo (taro) from small farmers to make their colorful noodles and custom dishes.

That innovative, sustainable concept earned it high ratings from foodies from across the world.

And this year, it ranks fifth in Yelp’s Top 100 Places to Eat.

Adela’s manager Carol Hirose said the good food is all about good ingredients.

“We use what happens to be in the neighborhood. The local farmers they come, like aunties and uncles, they bring it,” Hirose said. “We buy produce from them.”

Adela’s also dries and packages their noodles.

Buy them at the shop at 45-1151 Kamehameha Highway in Kaneohe and make your own dishes at home.
