If you were to take Chipotle’s build-your-own burrito model and substitute Hawaiian ingredients and flavors, you’d be late to the party, because someone’s already done it. Braddah’s Island Style just popped up at Rainbow and Sahara, in place of the old Mad Greek Cafe, and the food is just as satisfying as the fresh-Mex mega-chain. There’s huli huli chicken (grilled with a sweet soy marinade), smoky kalua pig and pulehu steak (grilled ribeye) to choose from, plus some tropical touches to the salsas—charred pineapple with tomatillo, for example, and a medium-spicy mango and roasted corn combo. Braddah’s is brand new, but these guys aren’t messing around; the flavors are there, and the price is right. Whether you opt for a seaweed rice bowl, salad, tacos or burrito, it starts at $6.25 for vegetarian and goes up to $7.60 for steak.

Braddah's Island Style 2330 S. Rainbow Blvd., 222-0767. Daily, 11 a.m.-11 p.m.
