Best Island for Eating / Honeymooning?

Chestnut | Feb 3, 201509:21 PM     11

I know there was a post on this about 5-7 years ago, but I was wondering if there was any new information. It seems like Chowhounds back then thought that Oahu was unequivocally the best island for food - is that still the case?

Background: I'm planning my honeymoon for mid-to-late March of this year, and was wondering where 'hounds would go. I live in CA and split my time between the Bay Area and LA, to give an idea of what kind of food I have access to (I get to eat lots of great Mexican, Indian, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Italian, etc. etc.).

We're definitely spending a couple of days in Oahu for my husband's business trip. From there, should we do the "romantic" thing and head to Maui? Or would it be wiser to stay in Oahu? Which island has the most delicious, most interesting, most Chowhound-worthy food? Emphasis on local eats, but I'm open to all suggestions.

Thanks!
