Hawaii is always a special place to eat for me, because it’s one of the places where I grew to love eating so much. When I was a kid, I would come every now and then to visit relatives in Hawaii and feast upon local Hawaii, Hawaiian food, and a variety of Asian food as well. In this video, we’re going on an ultimate single day local Hawaii food tour.

Joe’s Grill Express – Located not to far from the Honolulu airport, Joe’s Grill Express is an awesome local spot for Hawaii style breakfast. I went with the special loco moco, including hamburger patty, spam, and eggs, all over rice, with mac salad.
Total price – $7.08

Alicia’s Market – One of my all time favorite places to eat in Honolulu is Alicia’s Market. They serve a combination of Hawaiian food and local eats, and plenty of different types of poke. I had some roasted meat and the Hawaiian food plate.
Price – $11.47 (But the owner gave me a bunch of free meat, thank you Chris)

Tamashiro Market – Another long standing icon when it comes to Honolulu food is Tamashiro market, a small seafood market. They have all sorts of fresh seafood you can buy, and they also have a good variety of different poke and prepared seafood.
Total price – $29.59

Waiola Shave Ice – I’ve been going to Waiola shave ice since I was a kid and I still think it’s the best in Hawaii because of its incredible fine soft ice.
Price – $3.75

Itchy Butt – Finally to finish off this Hawaii food tour of Honolulu, we went to a relatively new place, my first time. Some relatives of mine had told me about it, and also every time I drove past, I would see a hungry crowd standing outside at all times. Plus I couldn’t wait to try it due to its name. It was pretty good, although Korean fried chicken tends to be a little sweet for me.
Total price – $24.00

And that completes this Honolulu food tour, hope you enjoyed it and hope this gives you some ideas about what kind of local food to eat when you visit Honolulu, Hawaii!

  2. Your experience in the park would have been awesome… if you were a friend of our CREATOR GOD !

  3. Hey Mark, I’ve been a huge fan of your videos since the first few. I’m visiting Hawaii in two weeks and can’t wait to try these great places. Thank you! Also, I’d love to give you recommendations of Long Beach California restaurants and local spots. San Pedro fish market was definitely a great choice, there so much more.

  4. I love Loco Moco, but was anyone else horrified by the sight of that runny white on the egg? A runny yolk is delicious, but runny whites are a slimy no.

  5. I had never thought about what typical Hawaiian food is like, I was very surprised that if we analyze the different dishes we can see that both the United States and Japan have had a great influence on the gastronomic development of Hawaii, I would like to try some of the dishes shown in the video.

  6. If you love shave ice, I'm surprised you haven't ever heard or gone to Ice Garden in Aiea. You MUST order it with their custard cups, most likely 2 to make sure you have enough, if you can ever get enough haha, because 1 is NOT enough! They put sweetened condensed milk, azuki beans, mochi balls, and pretty much almost every popular flavor syrup that everyone else has. So you for sure won't miss out on your own favorite flavors. Also local places like Pongo's kitchen with their baked ahi & guava chicken, sooooo ono! Can't forget about places like Liliha Bakery with their teri beef plate or even burger & cocoa puffs. When I go back, there are MUST go to places that I've been eating at since a child, except Pongos. That one is a lot newer but still old in a sense. Of course, don't forget to go to Zippy's! I don't think I know 1 person who hasn't eaten there at least a few times per month. So many comfort dishes there, but can't go wrong with their chili, fried chicken, spaghetti, and their deserts at the Napoleon Bakery. One more special place that has lines that you can stand in for up to 2 hours or so during the holidays, is Lee's Bakery in Chinatown. Their custard pie is that good! Lastly, since you have friends and family in Hawaii, get a Fuji apple pie from Big Island Candies in Ala Moana. It's brought in from Big Island and frozen, but OH MY GOD! That flakey buttery crust with the their Fuji apple mix is better than any traditional apple pie I have eaten in my whole entire life. Goes amazingly with a scoop of vanilla ice cream when the pie is fresh and hot out of the oven. Man, looking forward to going back to eat at all these places again soon! I promise you, nothing listed here will disappoint and you will remember these foods for the rest of your life!

  7. I like your super excited faces and reactions. We all do that. Some just might not want to admit it. lol The other day I tried something new and different. Which was a honey walnut shrimp, from a local restaurant. And when I bit into it, I swear I made the same faces you did, with a WOW factor. lol My daughter liked it too.
