6 Best Luau Food Ideas and Menu

It’s time for our Supper Clubs Luau Menu which includes the 6 Best Luau Food Ideas to make your party a success.

It’s been such a fun week of sharing ideas for a Supper Club Luau Party and now that the tables are all set, it’s time to add the food.

What Foods Do You Serve at a Hawaiian Luau?

Well it appears that all you have to do to make a dish perfect for an Hawaiian Luau is to add pineapple.

Why Does Luau Food Ideas Include Pineapple?

If you google Hawaiian Food Recipes, most likely you’ll see pineapple included in the ingredients. This could be because Hawaii is known for growing pineapples.

When I visited Hawaii several years ago, everyone asked if I brought home pineapples. I didn’t but I did eat a lot while visiting.

So get ready for some delicious pineapple infused recipes. LOL

There are so many great Luau Food Ideas and here’s our complete menu to help you plan your own party.

Michele’s Refreshing Pineapple and Basil starts the evening with a refreshing cocktail. I love both pineapple and basil so I know this will be on my summer recipe list.
