The Hole-in-the-Wall Tour

1 2

Get your taste buds ready for a veritable melting pot of island cuisines. Discover for yourself what differentiates "Hawaiian food" from the many types of food available in Hawaii with a culinary tour based on recommendations from local chefs.


A good way to discover the best area fare is to ask resident chefs where they eat on their days away from the kitchen. More often than not, you'll end up at off-the-beaten-path gems with uniquely delectable food offerings you couldn’t have anticipated. That's exactly what this tour is about, eating the way the locals eat and taking full advantage of the various types of food available on the island, such as Thai, Chinese, and Vietnamese options (think bento boxes and summer rolls instead of pineapple and coconuts). There's no roasting pig to be found on this excursion, though you will be introduced to the quintessential Hawaiian plate lunch.

Designed by Matthew Gray—among Hawaii's most well-known food and wine experts—this exploration takes you all around Hawaii's Chinatown and to the island's behind-the-scenes eateries. Samples diverse cuisines that range from Chinese fried noodles, Taiwanese sweet sausage with garlic, and Thai green papaya salad to local-style grinds, pastries, fish fritters, and Hawaii's mysterious crack seed.
