My fiancee and I will be in Oahu October 2-7. Our first time to Hawaii so we're really excited.
I need some suggestions for some great places to eat. More specifically, dinner places.
We'd like to take in as much traditional Hawaiian cuisine as we can during our short stay. Not so much interest in touristy stuff (we do have some, like Leonards, that we plan to visit).
We'll be staying in Waikiki, but will have a car rental so driving around the island is not a problem. Would prefer not to have to search high and low for parking though.
From other threads, we've decided to visit a few places already:
- Alan Wong's Restaurant for dinner (already have a reservation)
- Helena's Hawaiian for lunch
- Romy's Shrimp Truck for lunch (can anyone suggest something else to do up on the north shore?)
- Nobu for dinner (have a reservation, but not sure if we will be keeping it)
We typically eat dinner 6-8PM, and have noticed that many of the popular greasy spoon places are only open until around 5 or 7PM. We'll probably visit these places for lunch. What we're missing is more dinner options. We LOVE seafood, and are hoping that the seafood is fantastic in Hawaii. Can anyone suggest a good seafood restaurant? Even better if it's prepared in a traditional Hawaiian way. VERY good sushi would also be nice. We have Nobu listed, but I'm wondering if it's more of a fusion than true Sushi.
Any help would be appreciated!
