Pineapple Express Hawaiian Plate Lunch was born out of a desire to feed and nourish people-not just their bodies but their souls as well. Owner and operator Codi Nishimoto's love for food and feeding people is rivaled only by her love of the islands. She is Hawaii born and raised, with a long and deep connection to the islands. All four of her grandparents were raised on the sugar plantations in Hawaii, and both her parents worked at the pineapple cannery. These deep roots are what inspired Pineapple Express and all the dishes set forth.
