Waikiki - without a car - need a rec for lunch
My daughter and I will be spending a day without a car on Waikiki. We are staying at the Outrigger Waikiki and I would love a recommendation for a good lunch. I love pho and was wondering if Ha Long Pho Noodle House would be a good option. Can we get there on the bus? What other places would you recommend? We ate at the Pineapple Room a few years ago and enjoyed it and I would love to have another great mother-daughter lunch. I know that Ha Long is way more casual, but I really just want to introduce her to all kinds of good food. Thanks!

I do not know for sure, but I believe that you could get to Chinatown without too much difficulty, then have dim sum at any one of several places. Check with thebus.org.
Across the street from the Outrigger is the International Market and they have a great food court inside..cheap and good.
Great happy hour at Duke's and Hula Grill at the Outrigger for a mai tai and the calamari for under $10..
You can get to Ha Long on the bus, but it takes a while. catch any bus to ala moana center, then catch the "C". Tell the driver you want to go to Dillingham Shopping Center.
Cuu Long in Chinatown is also popular, but there is a line.
As a resident here, i have to disagree about walking from waikiki to chinatown, it is about 5 miles and half of it is quite uninteresting, and without any shade. I don't think I'd ever disagree with Hunt about food, but on this we are on different pages.
Russkar made some good recommendations for places closer to Waikiki, and I believe To Chau is just off Kalakaua in Waikiki.

If you start in Chinatown and walk 5 miles, you'll be past the aquarium. The OP's staying near Fort Derussy, about an hour's walk right through downtown. IMO it gives a taste of the city beyond the tourist areas. Kama'aina don'need da kine walk, but mebbe nice fo' malahini.
Still and all, I wouldn't want to make the round trip hike. I'm a big fan of TheBus.
