With the opening of the Shaloha Restaurant in Honolulu, Hawaii now has what is reportedly its first-ever certified kosher eatery.

One is not likely to find luau-roasted pig there, but the new facility promises that customers “will always be greeted with ‘Shalom’ and ‘Aloha,'” which accounts for the restaurant’s name.

The glatt kosher restaurant is located on the ground floor of the Island Colony Hotel, in the Waikiki area of Honolulu.

Offering seating for 45, a catering facility and take-out food, the Shaloha is also ready to send freshly prepared meals to major hotels on the islands of Hawaii, Maui, Kauai, Molokai and Oahu.

The restaurant is under the certification of the Rabbinical Council of California.
