Oahu, Hawaii - Food
Anyone have any advise on where to get authentic Polynesian food? What about food trucks?
Are there any MUST HAVE foods / restaurants?
We will have a car, so recommendations for anything on the island would be appreciated!

The saimen is good at Shirokiya.thriftshopper wrote: ↑ Wakiki is full of chains catering to white bread North American tastes at a hefty price. Didn't even go into Waikiki my last two swings through Honolulu in the past two months (admittedly on the first swing through, there was paid-for fine French food).
Other than for poké which seems to be the new rage, there's not much of Polynesian food that can be had in Waikiki. Going further afield, try a plate lunch which is the local adaptation of the Japanese bento. The Shirakuyu(sp) food court in the far bowels of the Ala Moana Mall s a good place to get food (and cheap beer) albeit the food is mostly Asian.

Seasoned vs unseasoned. Sashimi is just raw fish (you can add your own condiments such as soy and wasabi). Poké is one of those food fads, I wager.

Marukame Udon is overrated. Long lines and it gets really crowded in the seating area. If you're in the GTA area or have been to Japan, I would just skip it.

Agreed, we tried Marukame Udon when we was in Honolulu. It was overated, people goes there because there is always an line up, which attract curiosity from tourist.

Yes, I went there as went for Happy Hours as well. Just grab an drink and snacks. The view from the Top is awesome and it moves 360 so you can have a complete view of Waikiki.

Most udon cost less than $10US but when you adding on stuff, it get close to $20US easily, once you get your food, you have to find an empty seat with your tray on hand. You are not allow to get a buddy to hold the seats for you while you are getting food, the staff will kick you out.
It is not a bad try, but there is just so many other better foods elsewhere.
