Splash Bar & Bento (Hawaii 2016) – Supersized Appies

The Sheraton Princess Kaiulani hotel has their pool area located right in front of their entrance. It’s a bit sheltered from the busy foot traffic on Kalakaua Avenue as it’s set back and behind some shopfronts so it still relatively private.

Pacific Garlic Shrimp (Hawaii 2016) – Why Go To The North Shore?

Okay, so everyone that comes to Oahu has probably heard about the awesome shrimp trucks that they have on the North Shore. But if you’re staying in Waikiki, it’s a bit of a far trip just for a couple of shrimp. That’s not to say the North Shore doesn’t have other great things to look at (or great places to eat). It’s just that it’s not always convenient to drive up to the North Shore when you get a hankering for garlic shrimp.

The Pig and the Lady (Hawaii 2016) – Vietnamese Fare in Chinatown

Coming from a city like Vancouver, that has a very vibrant Asian community, we’ve never been impressed by the Chinatown districts of other cities. Sure, the Vancouver Chinatown has declined as well over the years, but it still seems larger and more impressive than other cities like Honolulu, which is about approximately 4 square blocks (depending on how you define the area).

Coco Cove (Hawaii 2016) – Poke and Mochi Ice Cream

Okay, so everyone that’s been to Waikiki knows about ABC Stores… one, maybe two, on every block and chock full of things that most tourists are looking for including sundries and snacks. Well, Coco Cove doesn’t have as many locations (currently 2 in Waikiki) but it’s not just another ABC Store.
