Fodor's Expert Review Side Street Inn on Da Strip

$$ Waikiki Eclectic

The original Hopaka Street pub is famous as the place where celebrity chefs gather after hours; this second location is on bustling Kapahulu Avenue, closer to Waikiki. Local-style bar food—salty panfried pork chops with a plastic tub of ketchup; lup cheong fried rice; and passion fruit–glazed ribs—comes in huge, shareable portions. This is a place to dress any way you like, nosh all night, and watch sports on TV. Pupu (in portions so large as to be dinner) are served 3–11:30 daily. It gets crowded quickly, so make a reservation or prepare to wait a while.
