Big Island Tour of Food

dagoose | | Oct 26, 2012 08:24 AM

Hi! I've been trying diligently to do my research and am not coming up with a whole lot. Would love if some hounds could please give me some help!

I'll be on the Big Island for a tour of sorts, so some of my meals will be chosen for me, and some I'd like to try to skip out on and find the best.

Because we'll be eating fancy-ish resort food in our meals that are paid for, I'm hoping to find total local's spots, hole-in-the-walls, just anything with truly amazing food. We'll have a car, and we're willing to drive.

Our first few nights we're staying in Kona (at Sheraton), though one of those days we're driving out to Ka'u, so can take suggestions over there.

Then we're at Mauna Lani, so would love suggestions around there.

Really the only ideas I've collected so far are Da Poke Shack and Hawaiian Style Cafe.

Looking for unique foods, stuff I can't get at home, so not Italian, French, et cetra, unless it's got some sort of twist...
