looking for good local food on Big Island:Kona side/Keauhou

sfkusinera | Nov 8, 2010 09:25 AM

DH and I are staying at the Sheraton Keauhou and Outrigger Keauhou this week and are looking for good, inexpensive/moderate local food around here. This is our first time to Big Island. We were at a wedding in Waikiki a few days ago and it was hectic, so we didn't get our saimin fix and haven't had enough spam musubi to justify the plane ticket yet : ). Going to Volcano and Hilo later this week and we have a whole list to get through there, including Cafe 100. But our BI friends didnt have any recs for us around this area. BTW, we are staying on this side because we're snorkeling addicts. But we are weeping at the thought of $14 cheeseburgers and $30 breakfast buffets for the rest of the week.

So until we get to Hilo...are we stuck with overpriced resort food?!? Looking for local food, Hawaiian (good poke and kahlua pork, please!), down-home Japanese and Korean, Filipino. Just to give you an idea of what we like, our favorite places in Hawaii include Hamura's Saimin (Kauai), Sensei Sushi (Maui), Oahu: Rainbow Drive In, Sidestreet Inn, Liliha Bakery, Giovanni's Shrimp Truck, Leonard's, Kamehameha Bakery, Poke Stop (Waipahu). Not at all interested in super high end, pizza, Mexican, Italian.

Please help, locals/those in the know! Mahalo!
