Bueno Noche!

If you’re a pasta, seafood and prosciutto lover, you surely enjoyed our recent feature on Waikoloa Village’s Italian gem, Pueo’s Osteria. We consulted Christine Babian, proprietor and wife of Pueo Chef Jim Babian, for further insight into the Big Isle’s night owl perch.

Q. What do you believe makes the guest-favorite Chicken Milanese so fabulous?

We use good quality, all-natural chicken breast, bread it to order using fresh lemon juice for the sauce, topped with wild arugula [and] local grape tomatoes. All the flavor without all the fill! [smiles]

Q. What are your favorite cities and restaurants in Italy? Have any of them inspired Pueo’s offerings?

Jim and I enjoyed Florence and Tuscany. Giovanni’s in Florence was one of our favorite restaurants.

Q. What is your ideal Pueo’s meal, and why?

I enjoy the kale salad with Kekela Farm curly kale, currants, toasted almonds [and] pecorino romano tossed with creamy lemon garlic dressing, I like to add our all-natural chicken breast to it. It has wonderful flavor and ingredients—and [is] very healthy!

Q. Pueo means “owl” in Hawaiian. Do you consider yourself a night owl?

Yes, more than what I have thought!

To learn more about “where the night owls meet,” read “Ciao Time!” in the August/September issue of HILuxury.
