Honolulu and Oahu Restaurants

Ono Hawaiian Foods

Updated 01/17/2014

Fodor's Review

Ono Hawaiian Foods. The adventurous in search of traditional Hawaiian food (teriyaki chicken with two scoops of rice is not traditional Hawaiian food) should head to this no-frills hangout, where residents patiently wait in line on the sidewalk. You can sample poi (a paste made from pounded taro root), lomilomi salmon (salmon massaged until tender and served with minced onions and tomatoes), laulau (pork wrapped in taro leaves and steamed),

smoky kalua pork (roasted in an underground oven), and haupia (like coconut Jell-O). The Hawaiian word ono means "delicious"—and locals agree with the name. 726 Kapahulu Ave., Kapahulu, Honolulu, HI, 96816. 808/737–2275. Reservations not accepted. No credit cards. Closed Sun.

Local at it's best

Local food at it's best. The Kalua pork was the best I have had. The staff took the time to explain what the food meant and how it should be enjoyed. We did enjoy. Don't be put off by the atmosphere. Great experience.
