DU3 Hawai'i People and Friends- Check-In!

Last edited Mon Dec 12, 2011, 03:48 AM - Edit history (2)

This discussion thread is pinned.
I'm back in SoCal now for awhile, but I've lived in Kaimuki and Palolo (Oahu for those that don't leave the Outer Islands) - All are welcome including "Visitors" to the Islands!

Let's see, we've got:



Lau Lau - can't forget that now.



Chicken Katsu - I like mine from Gracies or otherwise drenched in curry



Beef Curry



A Zippy's Chili Hot Dog Bento



And some Leonard's Malasadas - Who's Malasadas? Leonards Malasadas

What'd everyone else bring?

1. I consider Kings Malasadas comparable to Leonards

I tend to go for the Zippy Teri beef plate or the garlic shrimp from one of the trucks on the North Shore.

2. Those shrimp trucks are mean.

I always stop at Romy's when doing the North Shore Circle. Haleiwa restaurants are so-so, but the Kahuku shrimp trucks are amazing.

Welcome!

16. The correct place to obtain malasadas

is at Punahou Carnival.

This was especially true for the years I lived on the next block.

17. But what do you do the other 363 days in the year

Kings IIRC was down near Holiday Mart (that shows my age). Still closer than Kapahulu

3. Whenever I'm in the city it's Rainbow Drive In for lunch...

and Byron's on the way back to the airport...

We got a Zippy's on Maui now, so I can get chili spaghetti anytime...

4. Rainbow's does some mean plates...

I used to get dinner there like one-night a week. Mahi Mahi or Fried Chicken plate. They've expanded the seating area onto the neighboring property. That's Obama's favorite too.

Aloha Poi Boy from Maui!

Grab a Heineken or Primo from the ice chest if you like. I really like Maui Brewings offerings over Kona's. The Hawa'ii Nui Brewing Company is mean too.

5. Not being a local, I haven't shown up with any local goodies...

Oh, wait. Yes I have! I just found the KFC menu for Hawaii and located something we don't have here, so it must be local...



'Homestyle biscuits' as sides?

6. I think that's fairly standard.

They have KFC in Australia...you poor deprived people; most people in the States take their fried chicken much more seriously than KFC, which seems to be in decline

The local-style fried chicken is much better! The Zippy Chili and Fried Chicken combo is ono!

7. Those biscuits as a side aren't...

We have coleslaw, potato and gravy, chips, and buns.

Heh, I don't go to KFC. We've got a local lot called Kingsley's and their fried chicken is really yummy

18. Many mainland-based fast-food joints have Hawai'i-specific menu items

Saimin (Japanese-style noodle soup) at McDonald's.

Chili and rice (50 cents!!) at Wendy's.

And the topper: Spam on a Croissan'wich at Burger King!!

It's almost like when they adapt their menus for foreign countries.

10. That looks ono.

One time when I was at Hongwanji, a cute little 3rd grade girl tells me - "But Mr. Zachary, I don't speak English, I speak pidgin"

11. I spent two summer sessions at UH-Manoa, and my favorite Island food is

kalua pig.

My favorite island is Kauai. So much variety in such little space!

12. Maui Big Swell IPA



Yes, it's in cans. Dale's Pale Ale from Colorado started this trend. Hikers, fishermen, etc. need good beer, too! (Also cans would be cheaper out here than bottles.)

And yes, there's local beer. This is a welcome new development in the past three-plus years since I've been away!

edit: And yes, I have some in the fridge, in my Honolulu hotel room. I'm here through next Saturday the 29th!

13. Brah - that's like 6.8% ABV (yes, I know off the top of my head)

Best when drank on the beach on a cool Hawaiian night.

Glad you're having fun! I'm jealous here in SoCal - it was cold as fuck last night. Brrr...

I would say the Varsity on University has the best selection of the local brew (albeit with the college crowd).

14. Fortunately the college crowd is on break

and you are correct: 6.8% content. Hardly the equal of NorCal's Lagunitas Maximus at a whopping 8.2%, but what the hey!

15. Yeah but 8.2% makes it harder to simply demolish the 6-pack...

...while on the beach at night, in Kahala, lit up like Cheech and Chong.

Aloha,
