Oahu Grindz! Test your taste buds.

Thought this would be a good place to post your favorite eats/hole in the wall places since I didn't see a thread on this.

So to start it off since I work in waiks and always pass by this place, it's worth mentioning.

Since you guys go out to Kaena Point a lot, stop in Wailua at Paalaa Kai Mini Mart for some Fried Chicken and Musubi. They also usually have all kinds of Bentos.


$3.50 for 2pc chicken and a musubi, you can also get 10pc chicken in a tray for like 10.00...supah ono!


Then go next door to Paalaa Kai Bakery and get some Snow Puffies.
(check in on yelp and get 10% off 6 snow puffies) Trust me, its bomb.com tasting




This is my stop everytime we go up north shore side.

Since tenkaipan was mentioned, I recommend checking out Goma Tei for the Spicy Tan Tan Ramen.

Goma tei is good too! Pork Charsiu ramen always hits the spot.
