chow worthy eats in Honolulu for solo chowhound on the cheap

chowing kat | Oct 13, 2012 11:12 AM

I have a last-minute trip to Honolulu for 5 days at the end of the month. I have to seriously budget for this trip!!! I don't want to be relegated to tourist chains for my meals. My needs are pretty simple:
1)cheap
2)no chains
3)fish or vegetarian fare
4)comfortable for a solo female diner

I am open to all kinds of food as long it falls under #3. Not a red-meat eater and I can eat chicken/turkey anywhere.

I won't have a car, so access to dining needs to be either walking distance from Hilton Hawaiian Village or access via The Bus. I didn't want to rely on TripAdvisor suggestions since I usually don't like their recs, anyway. I'm an independent traveler and TA seems to be more Herd-oriented tastes. I've always liked my CH recs, so I'm hoping I can get some more for this last minute, on a serious budget trip. I really don't want to eat Saimin at Mickey D's everyday :-)
