The Nakihei's



Bobby Nakihei took advantage of a job-retraining program to move his family from Honolulu to Seattle in 1989. But the bookkeeping course he completed didn't lead to a career crunching numbers, mostly because of his aversion to wearing coats and ties anywhere except to church.

 

For years he drove a school bus, but he dreamed of opening a restaurant that would serve the Hawaiian food he missed: lomi salmon; kalua pork; laulau; poi; macaroni salad; Spam; and loco moco, a hamburger steak topped with brown gravy and two eggs sunny side up. When he least expected it, Nakihei says, he found the perfect spot, and in 2000 he opened Bobby's.
