A multi-part question here for all you Hawaii hounds! I am going to Hawaii next week. We'll split our time between Honolulu and the Kapoho/Pahoa area of the Big Island (about 45 minutes south of Hilo.) Here are my questions:
--If you had to choose one "destination dining" spot in Honolulu, what would it be? Alan Wong's?
--Where are places -- whether in Oahu or the Big Island -- to sample some yummy Hawaiian cuisine? I'll be running the Honolulu marathon, so I'm sure I'd love scarfing down a huge plate lunch at some point!
--Any "must eats" in either area that no self-respecting chowhound should miss? (From earlier posts it sounds like Pahoa is home to a great Italian place. Anything else?)
