  • 3

Does anyone know of any local places in Kona that serve good home cooked food? Looking for plate lunches and saimin noodles.Any advice?

  1. The three local places near Kona that I stop at are; the Manago Inn, Teshima and Sandy's Drive-in.

    Manago is a old roadhouse, great pork chops and breakfast. Teshima is a Japanese place - GREAT tempura. Sandy's is a real dive but has real plate lunch (I remember getting a fresh Opaka Opaka plate lunch for like $6 bucks).

    1. Big Island Grill is good too, although not necessarily a plate lunch place.

      1. The plate lunch counter in the KTA market at the south end of Kona has great food. Little bit hard to find, down a steep hill in a shopping plaza. Ask the Kona people, they will know where you mean.
