GlobeQuest Travel Club knows that great vacations are made up of three things. Luxurious accommodations, fun activities, and fantastic food.
The food in Hawaii is no exception, and GlobeQuest Travel Club has found some of the best places and dishes to try on your next Hawaiian vacation.
One of the most popular place in Oahu is Helena’s Hawaiian Food in Kalihi. Located a bit west of Honolulu, there’s usually a line forming by 10am. Locals know this is where the best authentic food really is. The no-frills restaurant has 11 tables and serves up favorites like kalua pig, fried butterfish collars, and luau squid. Without a doubt, the favorite dish at this joint is the pipi kaula, marinated and smoked short ribs. The restaurant opened in 1946 and is now run by Helen’s grandson.
Sit down restaurants have their time and place, but sometimes a quick snack on the way to a hike or to the beach is in order. GlobeQuest Travel Club encourages all Hawaii vacationers to buy tropical fruit from a roadside stand or farmers’ market. With the change in their pocket, vacationers are moments away from the delicious experience of their first tropical fruit. Enjoy guava, mango, lychee, star fruit, and papaya from a roadside stand. Chat with the locals who are selling it and really enjoy this experience.
Kona Coffee is known around the world as one of the best coffees. Visiting a Kona coffee plantation will give vacationers insight as to what makes this coffee so valuable. A few working farms welcome visitors for a free tour of the grounds and the roasting process. Check out Lions Gate Farm for the smoothest cup you’ve ever had.
GlobeQuest Travel Club wants you to enjoy the sights, sounds, and taste of Hawaii on your next vacation.
