From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Aina's Kitchen (Japanese: アイナ食堂 Aina Cafeteria) is an anime-exclusive location in the Alola region. It first appeared in The Guardian's Challenge!. Aina's Kitchen is located in Hau'oli City on Melemele Island.
Aina's Kitchen is run by Abe with the help of his daughter Mallow, and is a popular place to eat.
Aina's Kitchen appeared in Mallow and the Forest Teacher!, where its popularity led Abe to be interviewed on TV by Anna only for Mallow to storm out, having had enough.
In Sours for the Sweet!, Aina's Kitchen was entered into the Alola Bread Festival. As a result, Mallow took part alongside her brother Ulu, who had returned in order to participate. They ultimately won the competition.
In SM121, after enjoying serving Pokémon at Oranguru's Forest Pokémon Café, Mallow decided that from now on, Aina's Kitchen will also serve Pokémon as well.
- The line revealing the restaurant's name in The Guardian's Challenge! is changed in the dub to refer to Mallow's restaurant. However, the English closed captions and the Pokémon official website for Asia still refer to it as Aina's Kitchen, leading several dubs based on the English dub to retain the reference. Later episodes continued to avoid referring to the restaurant by name by referring to it as Mallow's family restaurant or the Family Restaurant.
ʻAina is Hawaiian for meal.
