fun cheap eats Oahu/Waikiki

well I have been reading this board for a while and wanted to see the latest on interesting ethnic or local foods. Though hardly new to the scene,I see Ono Hawaiian is interesting as is OnJin Cafe or Side St. Cafe for starters. We are not renting a car, rather walking or maybe taking the bus so some place easily accessable by these modes or a short cab ride would be great. I am guessing some great Pupu's can be had during happy hours. Also a market that sells tasty prepared dishes would not be bad either as we have a fridge. Many thanks!

  1. for markets you go to the saturday farmer's market at Kapiolani Community College, a short cab ride or bus ride from Waikiki. you can also go to an okazuya, japanese delicatessan. there's fukuya and ebisu's okazuya. for good prices on pupus and beer, you go to palominos. $3 drafts and half off their pupus.

    1. Thanks. I googled the Japanese deli and a great article came up with similar places:

      1. Ruger market also has good Hawaiian food. In McCully I like Maple Garden for Chinese and Waiola's for shave ice. Fukuya used to be closed sometime in January of Febuary each year for vacation, so you might want to call them before if you go.

        1. Stop at a Foodland supermarket with a fresh fish deli and buy a pound of kim chi shrimp. To die for.
