LOCAL HIDDEN GEM || [Oahu, Hawaii] Ahi Katsu, and Spicy Chicken!


  1. musicalala on August 19, 2023 at 7:44 pm

    Man,shoyu chicken is my fave. I feel sorry for those that go to HI and don’t try it. I’ve only had that flavour in HI. Chinese soya chicken is not the same or as good IMO. I’m gonna make it in Canada using Hawaiian local auntie recipe. 😂

  2. Ryan Chang on August 19, 2023 at 7:46 pm

    Soursop is a sleeper!! I always get it at super pho!!

  3. Erin T on August 19, 2023 at 7:47 pm

    Wait, is cone sushi basically inari sushi or is it different?

  4. Jeremiah Hussey on August 19, 2023 at 7:47 pm

    love watching your content

  5. Mōkulei’a Vibes on August 19, 2023 at 7:49 pm

    I have never gotten so hungry watching your videos. Too bad it’s too late for me to drive to Waipahu tonite lol!!

  6. Death By Cake on August 19, 2023 at 7:50 pm

    I’m (half) Korean haha and I can’t eat spicy food like I use to lol. Have you guys tried Vons Korean Chicken the one located in Panama Market?

  7. Hawaiian80882 on August 19, 2023 at 7:51 pm

    Ohhh my gosh my ole stomping grounds and I didn’t even know these gems existed….Cant wait to dig into that Chicken onion, calamari & shrimp dishes….all favs…..Mahalo’s for the awesome post you two!…Epic!

  8. Patrick Childs on August 19, 2023 at 7:53 pm

    Definitely looks like Korean street food. Always prepared so carefully and juicy.

  9. Sherman Brown on August 19, 2023 at 7:56 pm

    Mahalo for the great videos. Make us soooo hungry for local kaukau. Have you considered including Ruger Market in one of your videos. Years ago, we used to frequent the store for their excellent poke. Used to be run by a family (Dad, daughter and two sons). Don’t know if the same people are still running the store. Mahalo.

  10. Flynhawaiian3 on August 19, 2023 at 8:01 pm

  18. chellerrrz on August 19, 2023 at 8:08 pm

    My fiancé and I been waiting on this video to go up lol. That day we went to Hang’s for boba drinks and we last minute seen you guys on the corner by the sign and I yelled out “Felix and Amanda!!!” Not sure if you guys heard, but my fiancé threw a shaka out the window driving past by ☺️🤙🏽

  19. 1 2 on August 19, 2023 at 8:08 pm

    I’m Korean. Adding curry powder to batter has been a quite general recipe for long time in Korea, but we don’t call it ‘curry chicken’ because it simply doesn’t sound yummy..curry chicken..haha. Probably the major difference for Korean chicken from other fried chickens is Korean fried chicken fry twice so the chicken is crisper. Oh and the size of chicken…Hawaii chicken looks like twice bigger than typical Korean chicken…oh my

  20. thatzombieplace on August 19, 2023 at 8:09 pm

    Omg cm chicken! We have it here in l.a. its my favorite!

  21. Judy Wang on August 19, 2023 at 8:09 pm

    That chicken drum Amanda held is bigger than her face!! Yuji said it’s Vecna of the Korean Chicken, 😂

  22. John Stone on August 19, 2023 at 8:10 pm

    No IN N Out there. Thats an L

  23. Diz 420 on August 19, 2023 at 8:10 pm

    AAHHHH!!! Lynn is my mom!!! This is crazy to see her like this! She talks about her job all the time and how much she loves it so it’s great to see her be so proud! Thank you for shouting them out!

  24. Brad Mossman on August 19, 2023 at 8:11 pm

    I am glad you guys are giving exposure to places would get any otherwise. Mahalo!

  25. Sherman Brown on August 19, 2023 at 8:12 pm

    Another request. Are there any restaurants making wet kine pipikaula that you know of? Used to be a small, hole-in-the-wall restaurant at Kekaulike St. & Hotel St. called Kamehameha Grill. They made the best opu stew and wet pipikaula. Mahalo.

  26. Jan Climo on August 19, 2023 at 8:12 pm

    SAY LESS! Omg anything on chow fun noodles 🍝🤣🤣WINNAH

  27. kai on August 19, 2023 at 8:13 pm

    I love CM chicken!!! It’s so good!! The owners always give my fam free dumplings with our order bc we always come back. So glad you decided to try

  28. Sherman Brown on August 19, 2023 at 8:14 pm

    Time to market your trademark icon on tank tops & T-shirts. Amanda, you’re beautiful and Felix is buff. Keep eating all dat kaukau ‘cause look like no ‘nuff.

  29. Big John Stud on August 19, 2023 at 8:16 pm

    howz da chicken..mo bettah den vons?

  30. Nahs Oalibac on August 19, 2023 at 8:16 pm

    That’s the strip mall where the original Highway Inn was located while they opened the Nimitz location and moved that restaurant down the road to replace a Chinese restaurant next to GoodYear Waipahu.

  31. Lisa Freeman on August 19, 2023 at 8:20 pm

    Lol you guys are so funny! Why didn’t you just turn around and face the sun!!!

  32. Randi Downey on August 19, 2023 at 8:21 pm

    Ugh I’m salivating. We were just there for 2 weeks 😩

  33. Seymour Butts on August 19, 2023 at 8:21 pm

  34. VIETUS1040 on August 19, 2023 at 8:25 pm

    LOCAL HIDDEN GEM || [Oahu, Hawaii] Ahi Katsu, and Spicy Chicken! Good video for watching. I support your video. Watched the video on Watched the video on Aug 07, 2022 very like . Thank you so much

  35. Kai Y on August 19, 2023 at 8:25 pm

    Hey guys, Travel nurse here. I’m moving to Hawaii soon but on the Big Island. Can you guys go to Diners by Upscale Hawaii. Let us know what you think. Thanks xoxo

  36. E9ONE1 on August 19, 2023 at 8:27 pm

    Hey U TwO~ come pick me up let’s go korean food tour oahu lol~😁😁

  37. Paula Friedman (Aloha from Maryland) on August 19, 2023 at 8:27 pm

    Aloha Amanda & Felix. So happy to see you both doing part of your video in your car again! Food looked great there and also in the CM Chicken place too. Those drinks looked really interesting and tasty. I would definitely be interested in seeing you both visit more of the restaurants in that area.

  38. Clarissa Ingersol on August 19, 2023 at 8:30 pm

    Can you guys do a seafood video?

  39. Norman Dea on August 19, 2023 at 8:32 pm

    Great review of some places off the beaten path. A good local beer would go well with the food I think. Looks delicious! Good reviews but the term "glistening" might be a bit overused. Just a thought.

  40. Andre Roberts on August 19, 2023 at 8:32 pm

    Omg!! The chicken and shrimp look so perfectly fried!!

  41. JC Rodhry on August 19, 2023 at 8:33 pm

    I’m going for my birthday next week from Vegas, very happy and excited 😊😊😊😊 after two year of suffering at home 😂 by the way I love going by myself 🦁🦁🦁🥰

  42. Rodney Young on August 19, 2023 at 8:34 pm

    CM Chicken fried calamari is a sleeper. Before I tried it I was not a calamari man but I’ll be going back for more several times this week.

  43. Clarissa Ingersol on August 19, 2023 at 8:34 pm

    Where can I go for the best halo halo?

  44. Jp Fox on August 19, 2023 at 8:35 pm

    I like C M Chicken. Loved the calamari. Love the pickled daikon. I sat right where Felix was 😃. When Amanda said that the spicy chicken packed a punch, that’s an understatement! It was Korean hot!! And the people there are so happy. It’s a feel good place.

  45. Lynn Kepoo on August 19, 2023 at 8:35 pm

    Hi Amanda and Felix!! It was great having you both visit us at CM chicken!! Just wanted to clarify that the sauce you refer to as spicy is actually our red hot sauce. It’s our 🔥 sauce that is 3 chili’s hot. The spicy sauce is a sweet spicy sauce that Koreans call yum yum sauce that’s 1 chili hot..

  46. M Catherman on August 19, 2023 at 8:37 pm

    Pupukea Grindz is now on our must try list. The ahi katsu looked so good and I’m curious about the sauce. Thanks for showcasing all these local businesses 🌺♥️

  47. Basma Baht Yisrael on August 19, 2023 at 8:40 pm

    We have CM chicken in Columbus Ohio. It’s so good. They have the best Cole slaw also.

  48. Mōkulei’a Vibes on August 19, 2023 at 8:40 pm

    Waipahu got it going on. I feel sorry for tourists who stay in Waikiki and miss all the good food in towns like Waipahu and Wahiawa. They don’t know what they are missing.

  49. Mama from Hawaii on August 19, 2023 at 8:41 pm

    I used to go to Hangs all the time when I worked in downtown, I got the mango flavor it was always refreshing. The chicken and ahi katsu looked amazing!!

  50. Soup Bone on August 19, 2023 at 8:42 pm

    Rainbow used to be in that strip mall but failed because there food sucks
