Filipino cuisine evolves at former Kauai eatery

By Nadine Kam

~~<p class="p1">Kauai's loss is our gain now that the family restaurant Tiano's has moved from Lihue to Waipahu. It's a Filipino-American restaurant with the kind of breadth that, when just perusing the menu, scares me. How such a small kitchen can turn out so many different dishes always seems improbable to me. That they do it so well and in such a timely manner is impressive.</p>

The new restaurant is a welcome addition to more than just the Filipino community, with its wide-appeal pasta, local- and American-style entrees ranging from kalua pig nachos ($6.99) to prime rib ($16.99 to $26.99).</p>
