Fodor's Expert Review Fukuya Delicatessen
Get a taste of local Japanese culture at this family operation on the main thoroughfare in local-style Moiliili, a mile or so mauka out of Waikiki. Open since 1939, the delicatessen offers take-out breakfasts and lunches, Japanese snacks, noodle dishes, and confections—and it's a local favorite for catering, from parties to funeral gatherings. Try mochi (sweet rice-flour cakes), shoyu chicken, hash patties, garlic chicken, and Asian-style salads. The folks here are particularly patient and helpful to visitors. But it's only open 6 am–2 pm. Going on a round-the-island drive? This is a good option to pick up a picnic lunch.
