Walk up Waialae Avenue and you’ll discover a myriad of mom n’ pop shops around every corner! Whether you’re snack-a-lackin’ on sweets, languishing on plate lunch or dining on the divine, this Weekly Yelp’s got you living it up in Kaimuki!
Health nuts and flavor junkies go bananas over the açai bowl at Jewel or Juice. Noelani C grabs the refreshing treat that’s “topped with goji berries, banana slices, strawberry slices, blueberries, and drizzled with honey.” Ed L basks in the nostalgia and childhood memories of the Crack Seed Store. Their Icee with real li hing mui juice can only be described as “pretty bad ass.” The Pillbox Pharmacy sends Wayne S back to the future and he describes it as the “store that time forgot.” The real highlight is their “awesome cheap ice cream” for only $1.50 a scoop! Moose tracks and meds? Great Scott!
Aimee N knows not to judge a book by its cover. Flip to the back of Covenant Books & Coffee and find “a little slice of sandwich, soup and salad heaven!” No soup Nazis, just “fresh and made-to-order” lunch served up by friendly staff. Find a “great hole-in-the-wall with broke da mouth food” at Your Kitchen. Yvonne M dishes that “their overnight, simmered pork will literally melt in your mouth!” At North Shore Grinds, Ryan K remembers the days when he was just “a poor student scraping the coins out” from his ashtray for sustenance. While biting into their teri steak plate he exclaims: “It was the best my money could buy… and still is!”
Go adventuring at Jawaiian Irie Jerk, “hidden on the backstreets of 11th Avenue.” Brad V recommends the spicy jerk wings and if you want more heat, “they offer the option of Fire In Yu Wire” for extra kick! Tina T gives 12th Avenue Grill, “big thumbs up” for serving locally sourced nibbles. “The grass fed beef short ribs” deliver with “fall-off-the-bone tenderness.” Grabbing a seat at Asuka is a “no brainer” for Grant S, a man who’s “always in the mood for some serious grindage.” He’s impressed by the extensive customizable menu and generous offerings of extra broth. “This is the pinnacle of shabu shabu service! Welcome to the motherland.”
