Honolulu and Oahu Restaurants

Fodor's Review

Mitsu-Ken. Trust us: ignore the downscale neighborhood and the unpromising, battered exterior, and line up to order the garlic chicken (either as a plate lunch, with rice and salad, or chicken only). Crispy, profoundly garlicky, and drizzled with a sweetish glaze that sets the whole thing off, hot Mitsu-Ken chicken will haunt your dreams. But go early; they open at 5 am, and by 1 pm they're washing down the sidewalks. Obsessed locals line up at dawn to get takeout

for lunch. It's in Kalihi, not far from the Bishop Museum. To avoid the wait, call the day before to place your order, then head to the cashier at the "phone order pick-up line." 1223 N. School St., Kapālama, Honolulu, HI, 96817. School St. is a major north/south artery readily reached from the Houghtailing exit off H1. 808/848–5573. No credit cards. Closed Sun. and Mon. No dinner.
