Young Family on Oahu's North Shore-Need Focus

madgreek | May 16, 2008 06:39 AM

Hey, I'm going to be on Oahu next weekend, and was wondering if you had any recommendations about Chowhoundish things to do, see, and places to shop. We will be staying in a house on the north shore, but will be in the Waikiki/Honolulu area on Saturday and Sunday. I'm looking for places that are a good value, but don't suffer in quality, and keep in mind: I have a toddler and an 8 year old. Some restaurants I've read good reviews about in this area are Marbella, Kakaako Kitchen, Genki Sushi (fun for the kids?), and Olive Tree Cafe. Also, I really want to see hear about the best food in Chinatown. On the North shore, I'd like recommendations as well. I was thinking along the lines of Haleiwa Joe's, Cafe Haleiwa, Cholos Homestyle Mexican, Kua Aina, Paradise Found Cafe, and what about the shrimp trucks? I don't know anything about grocery/specialty food shops on the island, so I would appreciate some input. As far as things to do, I know there is a Dole plantation, but what else? I obvoiusly can't see everything, but hopefully you can help me narrow things down.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
