When he first moved to the North Shore of Oahu in 1992, founder Luis Silva quickly found himself missing the fresh salsa and homemade tortillas of his San Diego childhood. After a lifetime of cooking authentic Mexican food with his mother and sampling great Latin cuisine on surf trips, Silva yearned for flavors not to be found on the Big Island. In 2005, he founded Luibueno’s Baja-Style Mexican Catering; his Latin cuisine feasts soon earned a reputation, and were sought out for everything from weddings to the Triple Crown of Surfing surf contest.
In 2010, Silva and his wife Taryn founded Luibueno’s Mexican and Latin Cuisine, a modern Latin restaurant offering authentic Mexican food with a timely twist. Their extensive menu is anything but ordinary, with so many mouthwatering selections you’ll struggle to choose. Their burritos and tacos will change the way you think about Mexican food, with palate-pleasing fillings like beer-battered Mahi and sautéed shrimp. Sample gourmet entrees like Callo de Hacha en Crema de Tequila (seared scallops with tequila cream sauce) and classic, tender Carnitas, or enjoy a happy hour nibbling on delicious Botanas including Mexican-style prawns and perfectly-cooked chipotle BBQ ribs.
