A Hawaiian Islands restaurant is coming soon to Annandale’s EastGate Shopping Center.

L&L Hawai’i plans to open soon at 4363 John Marr Drive, according to the company’s website.

The menu features plate lunches of rice, macaroni salad and a choice of a local catch, chicken entree or alternate option. According to the restaurant, plate lunches are known as “the state food of Hawaii” and stem from compartmentalized meals of leftovers brought to work by wage laborers on 19th century sugar plantations and pineapple fields.

Spam, a canned meat, will also be sold at the location.

Johnson Kam and Eddie Flores Jr. introduced L&L to the mainland U.S. in 1999.The business had been around for more than 50 years prior to that.

The company now has more than 200 locations throughout Hawaii, the mainland and Japan. L&L did not return a request for comment from FFXnow by press time, but Annandale Today reported that work on the building is expected to wrap up in August.

According to Annandale Today, a beer garden and cane sugar juice bar are also planned for the last vacant storefront in the EastGate Shopping Center, which was built a few years ago in place of a vacated Kmart.

Now home to the grocery store K Market International and The Block, a popular food hall, the shopping center could add a mixed-use apartment building if developer Insight Property Group’s rezoning proposal is approved by Fairfax County. The application is currently scheduled for a public hearing before the Fairfax County Planning Commission on Oct. 11.
