i wrote this post when we were living in hawaii. i haven’t checked this blog in so long. i hopped on and have a few posts i had never entered. since food is one of my all time loves i figure i better put this one out there. here are a few of our favorite spots to eat around hawaii. enjoy!
hukilau cafe- i love the macadamia nut pancakes, ivan gets the hungry hawaiian.
pap ole’s- we get the same thing here. their mac nut pancakes have a mac nut syrup on top. i prefer hukilau because they grind the nuts up into the pancakes. hukilau just uses regular syrup.
boots and kimo’s- in kailua. same breakfast. creatures of habit i guess.
teds bakery- donuts, spam and eggs, chocolate croissants, haupia pie.
fumi’s shrimp truck- hands down best shrimp truck. we like the spicy garlic shrimp, extra sauce.
ocean bree’z- spicy garlic shrimp. this sauce is more of a creamy sauce.
seven brothers- we split the paniolo exchange bbq sauce for teriyaki. so good and huge. fries are yummy too.
fiji market- the chicken curry is amazing!! half moon pie is a pineapple custard flavored treat. delicious!
impossibles pizza- 5 cheese, pepperoni, bbq. all of his pizza’s are so good. lately we’ve been just calling and asking him to make whatever he wants and its always good! he’s only open thurs-sat. get the ranch!
sandy’s sandwiches- sandy puts all the love into his sandwiches. you can tell by the way he explains the process. we love the turkey brie.
elephant thai truck- pad kee mao, vegetarian noodles, ka pow, spring rolls. this truck is amazing and the outdoor seating is so perfect at night.
opal thai- this is ivans very favorite spot. opal is so nice and pretty fun too. you tell him what you like/dislike and he orders for you. trust him! its all amazing.
kahuku farms- fresh from the farm. you can see it all being grown right there. get the pizza and do yourself a favor and get the banana bread with ice-cream. the best dessert ever.
pupukea grill- get the poke!
matsumotos shave ice- coconut add cream.
hi slush- you can find them at the waimea farmers market thurs 2-5 or turtle bay until 4. the pineapple slush with extra honey is heaven.
leonards malasadas- i love the plain sugar and the chocolate filled. ivan likes vanilla filled. if you’re staying on the north shore and don’t want to drive to honolulu they have a food truck location by old navy in waipahu.
And Ivan’s favorite sspam musubi from 7-11
