Honolulu food options - K-Man's list update

macaraca | Sep 10, 2017 05:39 PM

I've missed Kaimuki Man on this board and thought it was time to update his iconic list he last posted in 2013: https://www.chowhound.com/post/eat-ho...

I've put an X by places I'm sure that have closed or changed for the worse, and a Y by new additions, I hope responses will add new venues and comment on those listed here.

Where to eat what in Honolulu
KaimukiMan | Nov 8, 2013 10:34 AM

What follows is a list that has developed over time to refer to when friends start the "I dunno, what do you want to eat?" game. I do not pretend that it is complete, I do not guarantee that it is up to date. It is intended to be a conversation starter. What should not be here, what have I left out that should be here?
