There are a lot of reasons you may be choosing to vacation in Oahu, including the weather, the beaches, the history, and so much more. We’re pretty lucky to live in paradise, and we welcome our guests with smiles, open arms, and an invitation to try any or all of these local eateries. The food we eat is definitely a part of the Oahu charm, with most of our dining establishments offering locally sourced foods whenever possible. This vacation may be the first one you actually return home from feeling healthier and thinner than when you left! Here’s a list of our favorite quick and popular local restaurants—enjoy!

The Eating House 1849, 4450 Kapolei Parkway, Space 540

Offering a blend of the past, present, and on occasion, the future of epicurean pleasures, The Eating House is exactly what it is advertised to be: a house where people go to eat! Featuring Asian/Hawaiian inspired foods that are fresh, delicious, and uniquely Kapolei, this is the spot where the locals love to go. If we had to pick just one dish that is our favorite, we think the 1849 Spicy Ramen would be the hands down winner, but we can honestly say we’ve yet to have a bad meal at The Eating House!

Plantation Tavern, 590 Farrington Highway #536

You may have noticed that island life runs at a slower, more casual pace, than that on the mainland, and the Plantation Tavern is one such example. Offering live music, a casual atmosphere, and an extensive menu featuring a little of this, a little of that, and a whole lot of tastiness, the Tavern is where the locals go to feel at home! In addition to our absolute favorite dish, the Shrimp & Pork Lumpia Shanghai, this is the spot to order your soon to be favorite cocktails. Try the Spiked Plantation, created from coconut rum, pineapple juice, lemonade, and a dark rum float, and feel all your mainland troubles float away with the ocean breezes!

Moena Café, 91-5431 Kapolei Pkwy #1001

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and the breakfasts served at the Moena Café will fill your dreams for years to come! Sample the traditional Loco Moco for an authentic taste of Hawaii or stick with your favorite omelet. The selection is extensive, and if you have a sweet tooth, you will HAVE to sample the cinnamon roll pancakes!
