Micronesian, Polynesian, and Fijian food in Hawaii

Jim Leff | Dec 14, 201510:17 AM    

I want to learn more about the Pacific cuisines, and I'm figuring Hawaii would be the best one-stop-shopping. The Kalihi nabe of Honolulu has a large population of Micronesians, Samoans, Tongans and Polynesians, with a number of restaurants and markets, but there's almost no Fijian action (except for one single Fijian/Indian curry shop in Kahuku).

If I want a range of restaurants representing as many Pacific sub-cuisines as possible, can I do better than Kalihi?

Maybe LA would actually be better, idunno...
