Anything new or recent on the Windward side of Oahu that merits a taste?
Heading over this next week...we're regulars in Kailua and have our usual spots (anyone else like Pah Ke's in Kaneohe like we do?), but always on the hunt for another local discovery. We know Kenneke's, Saigon Noodle House in Enchanted Lakes, etc.
There's a new Japanese spot in Kailua -- any opinions? How about Uncle Bobo's BBQ up the coast, worth a stop?
We'll be there over Thanksgiving, so also looking for recommendations for the best Chinese roast chicken or duck to bring home to the condo for our festive dinner.
I'll add my admiration to Socalboy for his remarkable eight day dining adventure. The dude must have spent major time in his rental car and looking for a parking place to hit all those places!
Also, wondering if there is a good place anywhere on the island that really specializes in local seafood. Buzz's does a decent job, quite good on the kiawe grill, but you'd figure with all the fresh seafood someone would focus on it, minus the goopy sauces, etc.
We know Tamashiro's for top flight fresh ahi, but how about sources for opa, ono, local sword, et al. Best so far we've got are Foodland, Safeway, Times and Don Quixote (surprisngly good.)
Mahalo in advance to all...especially the fulltime Oahu locals posting here frequently.
