A week in Oahu and want to sample the best!

SL | Sep 19, 2004 12:32 AM

Hi! I will be in Hawaii with my boyfriend for a week in the middle of October. We will be in Oahu.
I would love get some recommendations from everyone on their favorite local places to eat. I am interested in places near our hotel, the Outrigger Luana near Fort DeBussy (sp?) park, as well as those around the island. We will have a car for only 3 days in the time we are there. I am mostly interested in:

Breakfast places around the hotel
Shrimp Trucks - never heard of these and dying to try them
Best places for plate lunch or any other cheap yummy lunches around the Waikiki/shopping areas
Any other affordable lunch/dinner locations around the island that are accessible by car
Place for best loco moco
I like spam so any place that serves spam in ingenious ways would be great!
Best place to sample local Hawaiian foods, like poke, lomi lomi, lau lau, etc.

If you could give some address/location pointers, that would be great as I am directionally challenged!

I have jotted down some recs that I have read previously on this board. We have already made reservations at our one splurge restaurant: Alan Wongs. We are sitting on the chefs counter. Is that a good idea?
We are also going to go to House Without a Key for some sunset drinks. We will probably go to Sam Choy's Breakfast, Lunch and Crab as well. These are the only places where I've gotten a lot of information on.

Thank you all for your recs!
