Who We Are
Moving to Oahu in 1998, Chef Rihl started the Oceanside Grill, a casual lunch-truck on the North Shore of Oahu - serving locals, traveling surfers and backpackers. In 2000, David returned to N.J. to start a casual take-out plate-lunch restaurant on the Ocean City boardwalk as The Hula Restaurant and Sauce Company. Word spread quickly, and a loyal customer base was formed. Now operating as The Hula Restaurant and Sauce Company, Chef Rihl still serves casual plate-lunches on the boards of Ocean City, NJ from mid-May till mid-October. With respect to hard work and long hours in the kitchen, it was the Hawaiian food and surfer vibes that made Hula Restaurant a top-rated destination. Dave wanted customers to take a piece of Hula Restaurant home with them, so he bottled up his secret recipes and launched the Hula Sauce line in 2008. *The Hula Restaurant and Sauce Company has no affiliation to T C Aloha Inc. or any "Hula Grill" operating in HI or CA.
