Meet Irene from Kam Bowl

Many may know Kam Bowl for their famous oxtail soup. Many may know the space as the old Kenny’s Restaurant. For Irene Tactacan, she knows it as a great place to work.
Irene Tactacan, Kam Bowl’s supervisor, has been with the restaurant since it relocated to Kamehameha Shopping Center in 2016. Originally from Ilocos Nortes in the Philippines, she has called Kalihi home for over 20 years. Having lived in the neighborhood for two decades, Irene says that Kalihi’s Kamehameha Shopping Center is the perfect location to both work and shop.
“Kam Bowl is in a great location because the shopping center has plenty of parking,” says Irene. “I love the fact that I can walk to work and also pick up my groceries from Times and Longs before heading home.”
When not at work, Irene loves to spend time with her two kids!
Visit Irene at Kam Bowl to sample their delicious oxtail soup and other delicious menu items! For more information about the menu and dining experience, call (808) 841-0931.
