Cuisine of Oahu Island for gourmets. Places for dinner - best restaurants

Honolulu Be sure to try local Hawaiian cuisine on Oahu. Despite the fact that there are many fast food restaurants with usual food in Honolulu, various Japanese and Chinese cafes, you should definitely get introduced to local culinary traditions. It should be noted that the cuisine of the island was replenished with various dishes brought here from Polynesia, Asia, Africa and Europe for centuries, which were changed according to the taste of the aborigines. A nice example of it is manapua - a dish which roots come from Asia. Manapua on Oahu has the lush dough and round shape. Rolls of rice flour can be found here with a variety of fillings –sausages, chicken, seafood, sweet potatoes, and pork.

Manapua is considered to be fast food here. Locals often eat it on the go. Spam musubi or Hawaiian sandwich is a nice idea for a quick snack.

Hawaiians prefer to eat loco moco for breakfast. It is an original Hawaiian dish. There are many variations of it, but the traditional loco moco consists of white rice, topped with a hamburger patty, a fried egg, and brown gravy. The dish is usually poured with dark sweet and sour sauce. All the ingredients of loco moco are laid on a plate in the shape of a pyramid.

Local mac salad has a very original taste and it doesn’t have anything common with «McDonald's». Macaroni salad includes boiled pasta, eggs, potatoes, carrots, onion, vinegar and mayonnaise. Despite so many absolutely different ingredients, the dish is quite delicious. Inhabitants of the island love fish and seafood. These products are fried, stewed, baked and added to different dishes here. Ahi is two species of tuna: the yellowfin tuna and the bigeye tuna. Ahi is often eaten raw. Mahi-mahi or common dolphinfish has a very interesting taste and it can be cooked differently- fried, boiled and baked. But locals think that the most delicious fish is wahoo fish. That’s not surprising, wahoo is translated as «delicious». The fish is usually grilled or baked.
Waikiki at Night Oahu is rich with delicious desserts. Chocolate coconut cake, banana lumpia, malasada doughnuts and a guava pie with passion fruit and lime won’t leave sweet teeth indifferent. You can also try poi mochi. It is made of a local plant Taro and sweet rice mochi crust on the outside. Don’t pass by local bread made of apple bananas with a sour and sweet taste. Andagi is delicious deep-fried doughnuts. If it is too hot, you can try shave ice. It is an ice-based dessert made by shaving a block of ice. The ice is usually poured with syrup with the taste of tropical fruit, chocolate and vanilla. Every café serves various freshes, tea and coffee. The most popular alcohol drinks are cocktails with the juice of exotic fruit, beer and wine.
