I am staying in a condo at the Ilikai and will not have a car so will be dependent on my feet and the bus/trolley for transportation. I've done some research, but I don't see a lot on this board specific to Waikiki Beach/Ala Moana/Downtown area. Looking for good, cheap eats and drinks. I am not necessarily looking for high end dining, but am not opposed to a one night splurge. Happy hours are good. Mom and pop places are good. Dives with good drinks and food are good. I realize this may be a tall order being in the midst of tourist heaven and hotels, but would appreciate any suggestions my fellow chowhounders may have.
I promise to report back after my trip.
