What are the Best Places to Eat in Honolulu?
Hawaii is a great destination for relaxing or adventure. The collection of activities and things to do in Honolulu especially is surprising, since most people tend to think that it’s a small place. But oh, how people are wrong in their assumptions of Hawaii and its best city (in my opinion). But we’re not here to talk about the wonderful list of things to do around the island, we’re here to talk about FOOD!
Honolulu has numerous restaurants to fit your taste, no matter what it is. This short list won’t encompass the most variety, but it will have the best of the best for truly tasting the Hawaiian culture!
Open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner, Aloha Steak House is a great place for any meat lover. Offering savory steak, shrimp, and classic Hawaiian dishes will excite just about anyone regardless of preference. If you decide to partake in their delicious steak, they serve it on a bed of rice or on a salad (bed of greens), both go great with their Maui sauce! The menu is limited to just large portions of meat and seafood though, if you’re traveling with kids then they’ll also be well taken care of with a delectable dining experience.
An amazing sandwich shop on 11th ave, Earl’s offers a variety of quick bites and teas. This isn’t going to be some fancy place you have your 10th wedding anniversary at, but it’s good for fast food that doesn’t have a fast food taste, quality with speed.
Craft beer and a wide selection of food, the Real Gastropub is a great dining spot to spend the evening, just relaxing and munching on chicken wings. I’m personally a burger fan, so the Bent Tail Burger would be my go-to. But if you’re looking for seafood or even smaller bites, they have plenty of options to choose from!
Originally opening in the late 1940’s, Helena’s Hawaiian Food has collected numerous awards and the heart of the locals as a must try. Now run by Helena’s grandson, the restaurant remains a staple of Hawaiian cuisine!
Thyda’s is a small taco shop on Queen st serving tacos, quesadilla’s, and rice bowls. They have a small menu and to me that’s preferred. A restaurant serving everything may be good, but a restaurant that specializes tends to be great! So if you’re looking for a quick lunch that won’t cost a fortune, I highly recommend Thyda’s.
