On a Hawaiian vacation there are lots of things to do and enjoy from swimming at the beach, shopping, and of course enjoying some matcha. Though through all of that you'll want to have some Hawaiian cuisine. This article will talk about some popular ways you can enjoy each of the three meals of the day.
One of the easiest ways to enjoy some Hawaii food is the hotel breakfast buffet if available. Please note that some higher class hotels have dress codes for their dining areas so t-shirt/shorts may not be admitted.
These are cheaper and are open longer than hotel buffets. Great for fruit, bread and other breakfast items.
The last option is to enjoy a nice, pleasant walk and go to a cafe or restaurant for breakfast, but be aware that many shops can have lots of customers lined up. However, Hawaii is very generous with the amount of food they give you.
Hawaii is very crowded at lunch time, so, if possible it's recommended to avoid peak time, especially if you have children. If you really want to have lunch during peak time, the Ala Moana Shopping Center food court is a good choice as many seats are available, especially during the week days.
The smaller shots on Kuhio Avenue in Waikiki are another way to enjoy lunch in Hawaii.
Some stores offer Japanese style boxed lunches, garlic shrimp, Saimin noodles, and more. A lot of stuff is unique to Hawaii, so don't forget to shoot some photos of it!
Sundown is one of the best things you can witness in Hawaii. It's around this time you'll want to have dinner. It's recommended to go back to your hotel by 10:00pm, though almost all large hotels have restaurants in the vicinity. Please be aware of any dress codes that might be in place when making a reservation, though.
For Hawaiian dinner, meat dishes and fresh seafood are prime choices.
Some examples of popular places are Wolfgang's Steak House and Ruth's Chris Steak House for the meat and Nico's Pier 38 and Duke's Canoe Club for the seafood.
