Fresh seafood is popular here and there is a huge selection available. Although Hawaii has some excellent gourmet restaurants with food prepared by famous chefs such as Sam Choy, Alan Wong, Russell Siu and Roy Yamaguchi, cheap and tasty meals can also be bought from food carts and in the food courts of major shopping malls.
Some of the numerous traditional Hawaii dishes to try include lomi salmon, which is salted salmon mixed with tomatoes, onions and pepper, a pork dish called kalua pig, and dish called luau, where seafood is prepared in a mixture of boiled taro leaves and coconut milk.
Lovers of gourmet food will find an excellent selection of restaurants to choose from, many offering stunning oceans views from their dining areas. There are also branches of fast food outlets such as Zippy's and Bubbies for budget travelers.
Although many of the restaurants here serve large portions of quality food such as steak and lobster, eating in Waikiki doesn't have to break the bank. Many of the restaurants here cater for those on a budget and serve a range of Western and traditional Hawaiian dishes.
Located on the southern part of the island of Maui, there are a good number of reasonably priced restaurants to be found here, ideal for those on a budget. Most eateries are located along South Kihei Road and those who want to pinch the pennies can purchase food at the grocery stores here.
This area is great for those on a tight budget as cheap bites are available at plenty of places. Those who plan to spend time on the beach can also order a plate lunch and take it away with them to eat later.
