I have been lurking through this board, but if you all could be so kind, I would love some recommendations for my upcoming trip to Oahu in February.
I visited Oahu last in 2011 and thanks to Chowhound, my most memorable meals were Alan Wong's and Side Street Inn. I truly owe this board a debt about Side Street Inn because I think I would have found Alan Wong's through other sources but never a million years would have tried Side Street Inn without the comments here.
We are a couple in our 30s, love pretty much all food and are adventurous eaters, but particularly like to enjoy seafood while traveling as we can't get great seafood at home. On the flip side, zero interest in steakhouses as we have great beef locally. Staying in Waikiki at the Outrigger Reef, will have a rental car for part of the trip but not all, so looking for options both walking distance (can be pretty generous about what is walking distance) and anywhere on the island for the days that we're exploring with the car.
As far as price range, dining is a key part of travel to us, so we'd like to do a couple of dinners were price is no concern for a fantastic experience, tempered with some options for inexpensive breakfasts and lunches.
From my lurking, my list is
Alan Wong's (again)
Side Street Inn (again)
House without a Key
What else should I add? Especially on the breakfast/lunch side.
