By: Leah Shoup

Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck

If you travel to the North Shore, you have to check out one of our favorite restaurants on the island. Try the garlic shrimp plate!

Matsumoto Shave Ice

Try shave ice (or shaved ice) at Matsumoto Shave Ice in Haleiwa with ice cream on top! Another great option is Waiola Shave Ice.

Haleiwa Bowls

This adorable shack is one of the best places in Oahu for açai bowls, serving smoothies, coffee, and tea as well!

Sunrise Shack

For an instagrammable location plus delicious açai bowls, head to the Sunset Beach location of Sunrise Shack.

Leonard’s Bakery

Don't miss your chance to try the famous malasadas from this bakery. We recommend the macadamia nut flavor or the butter mochi cake.

Ono Seafood

Poke is a traditional Hawaiian food we highly recommend, and Ono is a local favorite for fresh poke in Honolulu.

Maguro Spot

For poke made to order in Waikiki, we love Maguro Spot, where you can make your own poke bowl.

Musubi Cafe IYASUME

You can’t go to Hawaii without trying spam musubi! Spam and rice may not sound appealing, but this local Hawaiian delicacy is delicious.

Find the best Hawaiian comfort food here, including the Loco Moco plate–Hawaiian dish with hamburger, rice, gravy, and eggs.
