FOOD TOUR ITINERARY
You will be picked up by your guide and driver (and fellow foodie) between 9:00 & 9:30 am (depending on local traffic conditions) from your hotel lobby or Airbnb. Pick-up is only within the Honolulu city area. Please note your hotel or Airbnb address in the notes section of your booking and please COME HUNGRY! Drinks and food are all included.
On this tour, we will take you to eat some of the best authentic local food that locals love. This includes traditional Hawaiian food and local fusion food that was inspired and created by Hawaii's rich and colorful history. Along the way, our guide will explain some of the landmarks that we'll pass and will share some history and insight.
You will first head to try different types of fresh Poke (pronounced Poke-kay) from one of Hawaii's oldest seafood markets (80 years in business!). Here you'll be able to see all the different selections of the local staple that has recently exploded in popularity. In addition to different types of Ahi (bluefin tuna) poke, you'll also have the opportunity to try other types of pokes made with fresh local ingredients such as Tako (octopus), O'io (raw bonefish paste mixed with limu (seaweed), local fern, and even Ake (raw cow liver poke, pronounced as "Ah-kay").
Next, your guide will take you to eat Garlic Shrimp with an Asian twist. After your tastebuds have been overloaded with the flavors of garlic and butter, you will head to wash your palette down with Hawaiian Shave Ice. Here you will be able to try the 10+ different flavors and option combos and also enjoy a few local snacks such as "li hing mui / crack seed".
Finally, you'll head to the best bakery on the island where you'll try some local pastry treats.
You will be dropped off at your hotel lobby after your foodventure concludes. Please dress comfortably.
Itinerary order and food serving may change based on traffic conditions & availability. Please note that at most of these stops, we will be eating outdoors and we will provide all utensils needed.
