TRY THESE LOCAL CLASSICS! || [Oahu, Hawaii] Local Favorites!



  1. Omg, i feel for Felix….if i didnt know better, i would have thought he was having some spicy noodles 😂

    That Mauna Loa gift box looks soooo beautiful…..but is it me, their macadamia nuts looks a lot smaller than what they used to be?

    Btw, the new camera is amazing, the picture quality is a lot sharper. 👏🏼👏🏼

    Keep up the great work guys 👏🏼👏🏼

  2. I love that you go to the OG Mom & Pop shops. Majority of these old shops have no A/C. As a kid, we didn't know any difference, it was a treat to go eat out. Palace is very old school – I know the folks who live in the upstairs green building next door (shown when you were in the parking lot). My fav Mauna Loa is the milk choc coconut – I always buy a pack when I fly out. Amanda, glad you're feeling better.

  3. Been going here ever since my dad would take us here after uh games as kids in the 90s. Need to make sure to support and keep the classic establishments alive. Pro tip: don’t get the udon when you go here. It’s just ok, and not what they’re known for. Saimin and won ton min is where it’s at

  4. 80 days until I'm home in Honolulu and I know that my first dinner is going to be won ton min! Can't wait! I've never been to Palace Saimin but that's definitely on my list of places I will eat at one day. Love you guys! <3

  5. My husband and I will be going to Hawaii in September and we love watching your videos, we have already booked a few of the restaurants after watching your videos.
    Thank you so much for your food try out and Fauve us so much ideas. ❤️❤️❤️

  6. Hi Amanda and Felix, new sub and luv your channel. My wife and I have been binge watching your past videos and catching up. You guys are so delightful, funny, and genuine. We love Hawaiian and local foods. Can't wait to go back and try all your favorites.

  7. YES!!! You have a video on Palace! I’ve gone here since I was a kid. I was shocked there was no line and you guys got parking. The parking alone has prevented me from going there in the past. Sorry you had the stomach bug. Glad you feel better. Camera looks good.
    I usually eat the Wonton with the mustard on the side. Once all wonton is finished, only then I put the mustard in the broth. So I get both flavors styles.
    Mauna Loa is one of my go to omiyage (pasalubong) along with Big Island Candies. I usually go for the Caramacs. My favorite. Another great video.

  8. admittedly, I haven't been to HI in a long time; but, I don't think I've ever seen the grass in Honolulu so brown and dry. 🙁 I've also only been to Kaka'ako Waterfont Park once… its a little far from where I stay early '00's. I went to surf spot ("Panic Point"?) but it was so crowded that day and no beach… little too intimidating for casual touristy water fun. Coincidentally, I also went to a Saimin shop later that same day… I don't remember name but it was just okay saimin… I think it was a small place at the bottom of one of the towers of the Hilton Hawaiian Village where I was staying that visit (I usually dont stay Waikiki but I had a work conference there so work pay)… or maybe it was a neighboring building (probably not there anymore), but I love Saimin, so I'll go even if its a little shop in such a touristy place.

  9. Amanda and Felix, the new camera allows for wider shots, but I’m not sure about the clarity and vibrant colors. The color doesn’t seem so rich and the clarity isn’t that much “sharper” than your other camera. I’m just being honest. I would expect the picture quality to be tons better with the upgraded camera. Anyhow, I still love just watching you both and your personalities regardless of the camera. Keep making great videos foodie ohana!

  10. And to think Amanda was questioning that Felix ordered 3 Teri sticks and it turned out to be so Ono! Hard to have saimin when it’s hot . Palace saimin will have to be take out. And soy sauce and hot mustard on the side! Can’t taint that broth. Mahalo for another great video. 🌺 and 👍🏼👍🏼 for the new camera!

  11. Another great video, guys! We are visiting Oahu this week.. watching this video in the hotel room as I type! Will we see y'all at the waikiki block festival later today? (Here hoping! Lol)

  12. Aloha Amanda & Felix. I'm enjoying the new camera you can definitely notice the difference. Mauna Loa has great macadamia nuts, I especially love both the garlic/onion and also the butter glazed ones. I had visited the Mauna Loa farm on the Big Island back in 1996 and trust me, I brought home so many of those small cans of macadamia nuts! I'm glad to hear you are feeling better Amanda, sometimes something can just be in the air and it can hit you like a ton of bricks unfortunately.

  13. I remember my first time trying a Mauna Loa macadamia nut. I was like 7 years old and I my parents had bought a tiny jar of them and when no one was around I snuck some of those nuts. I felt I had tasted a piece of heaven. Thank you for sharing this with us!

  14. Wow you guys look so stress out being so hot. I eat at the Old Saimin House across the street. the BBQ sticks are good. A/C. The new video picture looks great. Good job guys

  15. My one-and-only favorite place for saimin! 😋😊The closest taste you can get to Tanouye's that used to be in Kaimuki years ago; across the street from Kaimuki park, if you can remember that far back. 😉
