Aloha,

My wife and I will be visiting Oahu next week, and would love some recommendations for great food - not necessarily sit-down, formal dining. We've enjoyed amazing out-of-the way places on other vacations, and we're wondering about kick-butt seafood/sushi that isn't necessarily 4-star. For instance, one of the best seafood experiences we've ever had was at the Barking Crab in Boston - I think we sat at picnic tables and had a near-religious experience.

Suggestions? Thank you! :cool:
In vino veritas.

The recommendation from Tess to check Reid's site is excellent. Here are a few places to consider as well.

Mitch's Sushi Bar is located in an industrial park near the Airport. Reservations are essential as the place is tiny but they are open from late morning until evening. I find that mid-afternoon is a good time to stop by. Bring your own beer. Mitch's Review.

South Shore Grill on Monsarrat is bargin dining at its best. South Shore Grill Review.

A round up of places worth considering. I especially recommend Bac Nam for Vietnamese. Food 2005.

Just wanted to add, for your classic picnic-table experience, try to check out Giovanni's shrimp wagon on the North Shore. Reid has an entry about it.

Thanks all again for the suggestions. Safe and sound back in AZ today, with fond memories of Giovanni's shrimp truck foremost in our minds. Hope to go back again soon!
