June 26, 2020 | Sacramento Business Journal 

A sports bar concept from the group behind Midtown Sacramento's Tropics Ale House is planned to open as soon as late 2020 in the former El Rey location in Downtown Sacramento.

Ole!: Big Island Burritos brings fresh flavors to Waikoloa Resort

December 11, 2017 | West Hawai'i Today

"In Waikoloa, Kashani worked closely with Executive Chef Donn Rodriguez, hired in August at his nearby Tropics Ale House, to develop the menu. Rodriguez oversees both Tropics Ale and a staff of eight at the new location.

The menu caters to foodies looking for takeout or dine-in options. They can pick from seven dish styles: burritos, soft tacos, rice bowls, fries, nachos, taco salads or the ‘Ironman.’ Flavors range from carne asada or Kalua pig to crispy pork belly tossed in a citrus-adobo sauce, sweet and spicy marinated beef, huli chicken, ono wahoo and a vegan option (aka asada flavored Portobello mushrooms with guacamole, pico tomatoes and red and green onions). To top them are three salsa options."
