Shirokiya offers has a nice selection of Japanese goods. Their stock includes Sony products in the electronics dept.; Japanese music and books (both new and used); a very nice bakery; and great take out food on the third floor. They used to have, arguably, the best karaage (Japanese fried chicken), but, unfortunately, it was replaced by another type of ethnic food.
Took my wife to dinner at Matteo's. It is very highly rated and the food and service both lived up to its reputation. I thought the lighting was a little too dark, but, again, the food and service were outstanding.
Hy's Steak House offers decent steaks at relatively reasonable prices for Waikiki. It is located on Kuhio so easier to get to/from than most of the Waikiki restaurants on Kalakaua. One of our friends said their desserts are really good, so we will try the next time we have a chance to visit Hy's.
Chai's offers great food and excellent music. I have been there several times with family and friends. I have been fortunate to hear Jake Shimabokuro and Napalapalai play there.
Hoku's has a terrific seafood Sunday brunch. The fish is very fresh and high quality. The buffet-style means you do not need to wait. The only thing holding you back will be how much you can eat.
Times Supermarket in Kahala has a great selection of meats, fish and vegetables. They also have BBQ bentos prepared on Monday's in their parking lot. The staff is friendly and they carry Ted's Pies!
Straub Hospital provides excellent care. They have some of the top physician in Hawaii. They are dedicated, kind and offer just about all the specialties. They are conveniently located on the corner of King St. and Ward Ave.
Dr. Kawasugi is a very good doctor. We have used him for both our children. He is very knowledgeable and experienced with nice bedside manner. His Japanese language capability helps make him one of the top Japanese speaking doctors in Hawaii.
Teddy's Bigger Burger on Kapahulu makes the best hamburgers in Hawaii. They used to be located on Monsserat and moved down to Kapahulu near Kalakaua. Their burgers are thick, juicy and made when you order. Please give them a try.
Bike Hawaii Tours came highly recommended. I had a cycling friend visiting from Japan for the Honolulu Century Ride. We contacted Bike Hawaii Tours and they arranged for an outstanding private mountain biking outing. I was very satisfied and arranged for another mountain biking outing for my family. Look them up and give them a try.
