Hawaiian/Asian fusion and a Poke bar in Japantown

Just opened next to Kabuki Cinemas, Pa'ina's a new 300-seat, Hawaiian/Asian fusion-staurant with one of the few SF interiors in which your coconut shell bra will be totally appropriate. Plus they've got boozy goblets of spiked island punches, two types of sliders (Kobe w/ caramelized onions, arugula & tomatoes; and Kalua Pig w/ Hawaiian-salted, slow-roasted pork & grilled pineapple), Oompa Loompia (crispy ground pork, shrimp, sweet chili lime dipping sauce), and an entire Poke Bar, which's staffed by the weird dude whose Facebook friend request you've had pending for three months.
