Lineage was founded on three of Hawaii’s most important traditions: eating, drinking, and “talking story” - basically, hanging out with friends and family while sharing copious amounts of food. It’s the perfect place for a relaxing meal with a group or to celebrate standing up on your first wave over family-style, locally-sourced dishes. There’s a traveling dim-sum cart, and you should grab things like a chicharron with adobo spice, served with a chili-pepper water back (a traditional Hawaiian-style condiment that can be poured over food like hot sauce or sipped straight from the take-home flask). After, share a few pupus (appetizers) and entrees like the lauya, a Filipino soup with beef shank, short rib, and XO-doused bone marrow. Then pick a drink like the Everybody Chow Fun Tonight, served in a Chinese takeout container or Tutu’s Dime Bag, which arrives in a Capri-Sun-style pouch with a smiling cat on the front.
