Moving to Oahu... Please Help Me Stock The Pantry

Fellow Hounds I look forward to discovering all the gastronomic pleasures that await in beautiful Hawaii... but first order of business... i will need to figure out where the stock the kitchen. What are the best places to buy:

> Locally Grown Produce (Any suggested cookbooks for unique Hawaiian items?)
> Asian Produce (Bok Choy, Brocoli etc.,)
> Meats (Everything from Steaks to Oxtails, Pig Ears, Game Birds etc.,)
> Fish & Shellfish
> Belgian Style Ales & Microbrews
> Fine Wines
> Spirits... Fine Single Source Tequila, Rum, Scotch and Liquers
> European Style Cheeses (Roquefort, Gouda etc.,)
> Mexican Ingredients (Other than Mercado de la Raza)
> Fine Deli Items (Jamon, Prosciutto etc.,)
> Spices & Dried Herbs
> Legumes, Grains & Flours

Ideally we are taking about non-glitzy places that have products superior to what you find at Whole Foods, without the marketing b.s., and at much lower prices!
