Hawaiian Airlines offerings from Chef Lee Anne Wong includes Chukamen and Chuka noodles, though how they are different, I do not know.

=====
A selection of Chef Wong’s Featured Chef dishes include Mahi Mahi Poke Omelet with spicy masago aioli and hash brown potatoes; Tomato Chukamen Salad with mizuna, Chuka noodles, grape tomatoes and parmesan cheese; Miso Salmon Salad with baby vegetables and Miso ginger dipping sauce; Guava Shoyu Kalbi Short Ribs with mashed truffle kalo and pickled vegetables; and Okinawan Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Ravioli with parmesan cream sauce, broccolini and shiitake mushrooms.

Chuka = chūka < Japanese 中華, Chinese
men > Japanese 麺, noodles

Neither of these make the Oxford Dictionary site, Wikipedia or Wiktionary, though Wikipedia mentioned chūkamen in passing at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_noodles <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_noodles>. The citation leads to http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2341.html <http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2341.html>, which mentions chukasoba.

Kalo isn’t on the Oxford Dictionary site, either. Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalo_in_Hawaii <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalo_in_Hawaii>) says it’s the Hawaiian word for the taro plant, which Wiktionary agrees with (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/kalo <https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/kalo>).

(FWIW, poke /PO ke/ isn’t in the Oxford Dictionary site, either.)
