Hawaiian Food

Hi, this is my first post here, and the soul reason I made an account on this was to find this out!

My moms side of the family is from hawaii and I lived there for a bit so I have a real taste for the food. I've been living in the city for about 2 years, and the only place I found with hawaiian food is the L & L diner in the financial district. And it's fine an dandy for fast food style hawaiian grubs, but I would really like to find somewhere a bit better if possible.

Where can I find kalua pig, musubi, terriyaki burgers, served with rice and mac salad out here? I've been able to find manapua of char sui bao, but damn it, we bake our buns and don't steam them in hawaii, and it makes a difference!

So where do I go in china town for hawaiian style char sui like my grandpa would get at the fishermans market in hawaii? My stomach is home sick, and the musubi maker my friend got me only helps so much!

Thanks in advance guys!
