Da Spot brings Mediterranean food to the KCC Farmers Market

The tip sheet for tomorrow's Farmers Market at KCC lists one of our favorite places to eat, Da Spot, as a new vendor offering "Mediterranean entrées and side dishes."

What a great addition to the market! Check out Nadine Kam's review in the Star Bulletin. Owners Ako Kifuji and Ahmad Ramadan cook up a delicious Egyptian Chicken, among other tempting dishes, at their restaurant at 908 Pumehana Street in Honolulu.

They have also originated a new entrepreneurial paradigm: they are creating a pipeline of customers who will stay with them over the years. All day, kids of all ages bop through the door and buy something--often from the Da Dolla menu, or a smoothie. They graduate to one of the inexpensive sandwiches and later on will no doubt keep coming for those Mediterranean entrées.

We're curious to see what they bring to the market tomorrow. We'll probably forgo the breakfast offerings of the other vendors and choose something from Da Spot. Come to KCC 7:30 - 11 a.m. and check it out.
