Honolulu Tips (4)

I still dream about this Hawaiin Mac salad!

Its 10 pm where should we eat? Miki's DUH. This little hut opens at 10pm nightly, serving something different every night, after standing in line smelling the limited amount of the special prepared each night, you may be tempted to order a little of everything, and with prices like these why not! You absolutely cannot leave without Mac salad... this isn't your average southern USA Macoroni salad (YUCK!) this is its own little food group of awesome.
WORD TO THE WISE : this is a LOCAL Hawaiian joint, if you are white (like me) keep in mind that you are a minority and some locals wont like you because of your color (its rare but it happens). Know what you want when you get to the window, don't pester anyone and your good to go!
OH and dont forget to grab some of those yummy marinated onions to mix with your super magical mac salad.

NOW whose taken me with them? haha

Marukai Market

This is a very fun Japanese market. I couldn't read a lot of the labels so did some experimenting based on appearance. They have every kind of ridiculous little snack food you can think of. They also have hot ready-to-eat items; I had the Gokujo Sushi Dynamite (cooked ahi with spicy mayonnaise on top of maki - aaaaah!) Also bought some fresh fish here which was delicious. In the same little mall, there is a crack seed store and Haili's Hawaiian Food where we got some takeout kalua pork and portuguese sweet rolls for dinner one night. Eight bucks worth of pork went a long way. Fresh produce also.

It is a members-only store, but if you stop at the customer service desk out front, you can get a pass like the one in the picture - it says one-day but they dated it so I could use it for a week.

Dim Sum at the China Plaza Restaurant

This place was our local vice president's favorite lunch eatery for a great variety of good, inexpensive Chinese dim sum. It's located in the Chinatown Cultural Plaza--I wished that we didn't have to rush off because the Chiang Kai Shek museum was right there, but we had a meeting to attend. Anyhow, if you like dim sum, this is where the locals go...and for good reason. The food is excellent! (Our veep paid, so I didn't see the prices for three. He said, however, that it's 'cheap' for Honolulu.)

Get your Hawaiian shirt cheap at Goodwill

Don't spend a bundle in Waikiki for your island wear, you can get great clothes for your trip at the Goodwill store on Beretania in Honolulu.
