WE ARE TINROOF.
A new generation mom & pop shop, owned by Internationally recognized Chef Sheldon Simeon & his wife, Janice.
Raised in Hilo, Hawaii rain is a part of everyday life. Farmers markets keep buzzing, errands roll along, and garage kani ka pila never ends. The sound of rain on a tin roof is what reminds us of home. You know when the rain is coming; it's soothing, calming, & comforting. In this tin roof garage under that Hilo rain is where we built our definition of home. Home by what was played by the people that surrounded us, and most importantly, what was cooked!
Food is one of our definitions of home and what we love. We work closely with our local farmers, fishermen, ranchers, artisans, & purveyors to provide honest, ono food to our community. This is our humble beginning. This is our TINROOF. We do not take reservations, walk-ins only.
