Kaui and Big Island help...

JeremyEG | Sep 11, 2008 09:36 PM

Hey Guys,
We are 2 adventurous NYC newlyweds. We have nearly 2 weeks in Hawaii and we no very little about Hawaiin food. We have been in Honolulu for 2 days and loved Ono. No problem with poi as others have discussed. The poke was our first and it was wonderful as well. Please forgive our poor understanding of Hawaiin geography as we describe where we're staying. We are looking for recs for everything from very high end (we'd like to do some superb sushi at some point) to dingy hole-inthe-wall type places serving great local cuisine.Price is not an issue if the food is good. Thanks hounds for your help!

We will be at the Hyatt in Poipu for 3 nights and we will have a car if there are better food options than what is served at the resort. We will be on the North Shore in Hanalei for another couple nights.

In the Big Island, we will be staying either near or in Pahoa for 4 nights. We will have our own kitchen for that time so if there are markets you recommend, let us know as we love to cook on vacation.

We will have one night in KEALAKEKUA.

Our last 2 nights will be near Hawi and Kapaau.

We can't thank you enough for your help. We're looking forward to a honeymoon full of great food.
