Eating well on Oahu - no fish or seafood
Posted 30 October 2005 - 01:49 PM
We'll be visiting Oahu* in January, and of course we would like to eat well while we're there. Unfortunately, we have two major restrictions (besides budget)
1: I am allergic to both fish & seafood - I can have a little thai fish sauce as a minor component in a dish, but nothing more than that or bad things will happen, which I know means I'm missing out on some of the best of the local cuisine - what can you do?
2: My adorable husband is not so keen on Thai or Japanese cuisine in general, so I have to keep those to a minimum. (no accounting for tastes)
Now we both love Plate Lunch, but on our last trip, after eating some of the worst mexican food I've ever seen, and a lot of really dull low-quality "american" food, Plate Lunch became almost the only thing we ate & frankly we got pretty tired of it after a while. (and yet we never got tired of malasadas - hmm)
So in short, what are some good affordable places to dine outside the plate lunch arena, that aren't too fishy or japanese/thai ?
Thanks for any advice!
*we'll be renting a condo in Waikiki but will have a rental car at least part of the time, so food outside of honolulu is of interest as well.

re why Bill doesn't like Japanese: he just says it's "too salty" but eats other things that I find saltier, so it's obviously just one of those weird husband things
thanks for the suggestions.
