I had the pleasure of documenting a very special 1st birthday this last week. Pono Burger, a neighborhood favorite in Santa Monica, celebrated its first anniversary! Pono Burger serves up delicious burgers, fries, and shakes made from organic and farm-fresh ingredients. Chef Makani’s Hawaiian roots and her dedication to honest food really shows through in every bite. It was such as fun and delicious experience getting to know her and the restaurant as I helped them prepare and document this special celebration. Enjoy the photos!
