I recently moved to Honolulu from the Middle East and have had to dine out for nearly every meal since being here due to my household items still being in transit. I've been using urbanspoon, yelp and word of mouth to guide my food hunt. I'm not going to trash any restaurants by name but I'm honestly disappointed with dining scene here in general. I've tried the heavy hitters in the following categories: American, BBQ, Burgers, Chinese, Filipino, Greek, Hawaiian, Hot dogs(they're good), Indian, Korean, Latin, Seafood, thai and couple of sandwich shoppes. Don't know if it's just me (it must be) but yeah, just kinda let down by it. The food scene was one of the main reasons I moved here too. The loco-moco's and plate lunches I've heard all about for years are gross; and it seems that much of the food makes up with greasy pork products and a deep fryer for what it's lacking in quality ingredients and cooking skill. To give you an example I recently got a $13 Fish Taco from this supposed must eat and it was a dry flavorless pile of crap with pico and no sauce. I'm not trying piss anyone off here or get flamed by a bunch of people, I need some sound advice to some eye-opening places because this consistent losing streak is making me depressed.
