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 help from 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.
Aina is Hawaiian for meal.
- 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 site for Asia still refer to it as Aina's Kitchen, leading several dubs based on the English dub to retain the reference. Later episodes continue to avoid referring to the restaurant by name.
