Trip Report Waikiki - some restaurant reviews

Jump to last reply

Here's my trip report. But it's all about food! Some old favorites and new ones I tried on my vacation Nov 8-18-

ME Korean BBQ, 151 Uluniu Ave. at the Royal Grove hotel. This place rocks! I had breakfast there most mornings. Scrambled eggs, 3 strips of bacon (or spam or portuguese sausage), wheat toast or 2 scoops rice $4.25. Made fresh, eaten on the outdoor patio. Full plate BBQ chicken dinner $8.50, 2 scoops rice, 4 vegetable sides.

ShoreBird $12.95 breakfast buffet was very nice with their lovely ocean view. Three kinds of pastries, white bread, papaya, pineapple, canned peaches, cottage cheese, scrambled eggs, portugese sausage, corned beef hash, poached white fish, fried rice, ham, turkey, juice, coffee, tea.

Eggs & Things is in fact reopen at 343 Saratoga but the two times I went the wait was 20-30 mins. and prices seemed a bit stiff for a breakfast (omelettes $9.75 for example). Looked cute though.

Seaside Bar & Grill, 2256 Kuhio, 2 pancake, 2 bacon, 2 scrambled egg special $3.75. Daily omelet special $6.95. Cocktails available. I like the nitty gritty old time atmosphere of this place, a nice contrast from all the upscale new stuff going on.

Blue Water Shimp Co. at the International Market food court. ~$12.95 for shrimp scampi or mac nut crusted opaka-paka. with green salad, small piece corn on the cob, sauteed vegetables, 2 scoops rice. Some nights have live music on the stage there (I saw Greg & Junko MacDonald, a steel pan music duo, they're there Sundays and Tuesdays 6:30-8:30pm)

International Market has a Thursday 'farmers market' from 4 to 8 pm. So there's a few independent temporary food booths different from the regular shops. Several families doing BBQ chicken plates. One Mom & Pop with amazing food... pork adobo, two other pork dishes, several vegetable sides (look for the set up on stainless steel steam trays, crock pots, rice cookers). My heaping too-go container with 2 main dishes was $5.50. They are only there on Thursdays. Real home cooking. Also don't miss the booth for Ruby's Organic Pastries, her mac nut chocolate oatmeal cookies were outta this world.

Keoni by Keos, 2375 Kuhio is a mid-scale place, nice atmosphere, good service and decent Thai and seafood. My mahimahi was pretty good, the mashed potato side was killer.

Barefoot Bar at Dukes at sunset and a glass of wine and live hawaiian music was lovely.

The bar at Hau Tree Lanai at New Otani, again very nice for a couple mai tais at sunset.

The restaurant/bar at my own hotel "Sand Bar" (Waikiki Sand Villa) was decent with friendly service. The menu is limited but what I had (and what I saw others with) was good. I had a huge spinach, mushroom, bacon omelette & a great bloody mary for just $9.50. Saw others with caesar salads, fried mahimahi with onion rings, like that.

Old Saigon pho noodle shop at 2270 Kuhio was very good. I had a stir-fry of shrimp, squid, vegetables & a Tsingtao beer for $21 plus tip.

aloha, and happy eating, suze
