Hidden Gems Near the Airport! || [Honolulu, Oahu] Local Eats!


  1. damokebusdrivah on December 21, 2022 at 1:19 am

    Just went to Christine’s and brah they closed down 😮. Didn’t see that coming my wife and I were regulars and didn’t know they were closing😢

  2. May on December 21, 2022 at 1:20 am

    Can’t wait to visit Hawaii again! Have you guys gone to Doraku Sushi Waikiki? You should definitely check out their happy hour – a must try! 🙂

  3. Andre Roberts on December 21, 2022 at 1:20 am

    Thank you for another video full of great eats!

  4. Brenda Lea on December 21, 2022 at 1:24 am

    Thanks for the airport area review. We will be trying Joe’s for sure!

  5. Keith Pasquinzo on December 21, 2022 at 1:25 am

    My wife’s family is from waipahu but we now live in Texas. I look forward to watching Amanda & Felix. They give us great ideas to try on our yearly visit to Oahu. But I get so hungry. Koa Loco Moco with corn beef my favorite so far. Mahalo

  6. David Izumi on December 21, 2022 at 1:25 am

    Went to Joe’s Grill yesterday per your suggestion. It had a real home cooking vibe. Food was pretty good. I had the fried chicken adobo. Tasted more like mochiko chicken had little or no adobo taste. Price was fair but the take away for me was the garlic rice. First time tried it anywhere. It was so good with the chicken complimented it perfectly. Thanks

  7. Jaymie 808 on December 21, 2022 at 1:26 am

    Joes makes amazing Sari Sari as well 😋

  8. James ORONA on December 21, 2022 at 1:27 am


  9. Lynn Medina on December 21, 2022 at 1:28 am

    My husband and I enjoy your videos so much, especially the bloopers! The pork roulade looks amazing. Will definitely try!

  10. GOcsalon Ocsalon on December 21, 2022 at 1:29 am

    A gem to discover your video 👍locals in Oahu recommending amazing food places to go – we visit almost yearly cities in Hawaii to celebrate wedding anniversaries. Will check your video for food hunt next visit 🍔🍟🍜🍲🥟🧁 thank you!

  11. Janet Hata-Yonezawa on December 21, 2022 at 1:31 am

    I enjoy your episodes.
    Re: tennis elbow–keep icing it. It helps me.

  12. Rosemarie Awa on December 21, 2022 at 1:32 am

    Great video guys! Keep them coming 🤙🏽That adobo omelet looked amazing & ginormous 😋 lol

  13. Kehau Duvauchelle on December 21, 2022 at 1:34 am

    So we’ll be going home from California in 3 weeks and it’s been nearly 10 years since we’ve been home.
    You 2 have given us confidence to feel at home with all your videos. My husband is already planning our 1st stop and all stops in between. He’s working out to make room for all the eating he is planning to do.
    You 2 make us PROUD to be from Hawaii and genuinely show the SPIRIT OF ALOHA! Mahalo Nui Loa Ia ‘Oe and continue the journey.

  14. Randi Downey on December 21, 2022 at 1:34 am

    You can buy the chili garlic vinegar at Asian markets, or also make at home

  15. Dave Jimmy on December 21, 2022 at 1:35 am

    Amanda & Felix—— Love- Love your video’s immensely!!! Is there a Reason you do not post the $$$$ Prices when you edit your video’s. Just Curios

  16. DanVsWorld on December 21, 2022 at 1:37 am

    Gotta hit these spots right after I touch down next time

  17. Lawrence Akini on December 21, 2022 at 1:38 am

    Aloha. Your food vlog are great. Mahalo. You both have an amazing day.

  18. Shawn Te'o on December 21, 2022 at 1:41 am

    Hey guys we will be there in October. Where can we get good food in Waikiki that’s cheap?

  19. IRINA FROM RUSSIA on December 21, 2022 at 1:41 am


  20. Cristina Lagarde on December 21, 2022 at 1:43 am

    Aloha Amanda and Felix – I love your channel and watching you both. Felix – you’re very entertaining! We’re (my family and I) are currently in Oahu and I always go back to your previous videos for good places to eat while we’re here. Mahalo nui loa ❤️ I’m crossing my fingers that one of these days we’d run into you both. 🤞🏼

  21. james post on December 21, 2022 at 1:46 am

    Most excellent can’t wait. It’s a fat dispatchers eating place. Alco fire dispatch. Cal.

  22. Mel Lum on December 21, 2022 at 1:46 am

    2 more new places to try!

  23. Maria Catherman on December 21, 2022 at 1:47 am

    Loved today’s spots! The pork and ube French toast looked so good! Do they have coconut syrup for the French toast? How sweet that they knew you’re a pinakbet fan Amanda! Adding these spots to our must try list. Mahalo Amanda and Felix 🌺

  24. Marc Castro on December 21, 2022 at 1:47 am

    Too bad Christine’s Diner is permanently closed now.

  25. vitaminttime on December 21, 2022 at 1:49 am

    For the elbow pain, it should be differentiated between real tennis elbow and pain referral from neck.

  26. bighatstephens on December 21, 2022 at 1:51 am

    Hello Panda!!!! One of my faves.

  27. AC on December 21, 2022 at 1:51 am

    Hey Felix, I had tennis and golf elbow for years, but a great chiropractor convinced me to get sport/deep tissue massage of the elbow, and after a month, the pain went away. I hope you feel better soon. Love the video and will try Joe’s Grill and Christine’s!!

  28. Khai M. on December 21, 2022 at 1:53 am

    Hey Amanda and Felix! Thanks for the awesome videos. We were in Ko Olina for a vacation in mid August. With your tips from the many videos, we were able to get lots of Oahu food goals checked. (Butter mochi from Lanikai Mochi, Highway Inn for Hawaiian food, Zippys, numerous dhave ice locations, everything li hing mui!) We still have lots more on the list saved for a returning trip. Keep up the good job!

  29. Flynhawaiian3 on December 21, 2022 at 1:55 am


  30. Barry Rupisan on December 21, 2022 at 1:56 am

    Sup foodie ohana! This is definitely helpful. When my daughter and I were leaving Oahu last month we figured there would be some local spots to eat at the airport. Nope. Nothing was open except an over priced Burger King… we were sad that we didn’t get a good last meal before leaving the island.

  31. Paula Friedman (Aloha from Maryland) on December 21, 2022 at 1:56 am

    Aloha Amanda & Felix. First, it was nice meeting you both and mahalo for taking the time to meet up. Second, I wish that I was able to check out more of the restaurants you’ve showcased in your videos, I hope to come back again and am able to try some of these places out. I haven’t tried Filipino food before other than halo halo, will need to put that on my bucket list. Oh yeah, Felix, I too put ketchup on my eggs!

  32. Alan OTA on December 21, 2022 at 1:57 am

    Love da mom and pop spots. Mahalo

  33. Epoxydog on December 21, 2022 at 1:57 am

    Thanks for the videos! I am a local. Have you guys checked out Da Spot over near University. Great cheap eats and great quality food.

  34. DrSyn7 on December 21, 2022 at 2:00 am

    There’s a pretty good Korean bbq place called Soon’s Kalbi in Salt Lake Shopping Center. You guys should try them.

  35. Inspector Sunday on December 21, 2022 at 2:02 am

    Try some banana ketchup to switch things up.

    Banana ketchup fun fact: American soldiers introduced tomato ketchup to the Philippines back in ww2 but tomatoes were hard to find. At the time banana was plentiful, hence the creation of banana ketchup.

    Mix vinegar, red onions, garlic, thai chili/labuyo, and a bit of banana ketchup =bomb dip for longganisa, beef tapa, or tocino (sweet pork jerky).

  36. okguy 1 on December 21, 2022 at 2:02 am

    Hello! You two are awesome. Thank you for all your recommendations. One thing though….a little critique. I noticed you guys drink a lot soda. Or one of you does. Diet looks like. Something I don’t recommend. If u guys only drink soda only on video maybe once a week….then nothing wrong with that. Ok…..just looking out. I am a little older than you kids! 😇. Keep up the good work. Mahalo! 🤙🏼🌴😬

  37. Mike Fa on December 21, 2022 at 2:02 am

    How can a person use ketchup without tabasco sauce? Got to try the combo Felix!

  38. Derek Alvarez on December 21, 2022 at 2:04 am

    Just got back last week. We had the best time, and your videos certainly helped. Went to Alicia’s market. Side street inn, Jenny’s shrimp, Teds Bakery, rainbow drive inn, Tamura’s, Sunrise Shack, Matsumotos, Adela’s Country Eatery, Poke on Da Run, Leonard’s Bakery, Waiola Shave Ice. And then Maui 🤘🏽

  39. The Plettz on December 21, 2022 at 2:05 am

    We’re flying into HNL from SYD next week and we were last in Hawai’i back in 2016. I remember the Ward District had heaps of restaurants, but we never got a chance to fully explorer that area. We went there once or twice for an awesome eat. I’m not sure if the area’s popular with HI locals but maybe having a look there with a vid or two highlighting some hidden eats would be mad. The area didn’t seem overrun with tourists like Kalakaua Ave

  40. Ted Gantan on December 21, 2022 at 2:06 am

    Hi Amanda & Felix,
    I wanted to know if you two can do a shrimp truck comparison between Giovani’s vs Fumi Kahuku? I preferred Fumi’s all day but a lot of people go Giovanni just because it’s popular. Look forward to your comments.

  41. Dennis Tani on December 21, 2022 at 2:06 am

    Guys, thanks for another nice video!! The french toast and pancakes look amazing!! Also travel to Japan I think hopefully will open up next spring, please plan on coming to Okinawa!

  42. Mōkulei’a Vibes on December 21, 2022 at 2:06 am

    You should check out the hidden, really hidden gem Wat Thai (Buddhist Temple) in Pearl City right next to Home Depot. Every Sunday 10am-2pm the Buddhist monks do a fundraiser with Thai street food and from what the Google reviews say it is the most authentic Thai on O’ahu. Cash only. Modest dress (no tanks or shorts or short skirts). Difficult parking (right on Farrington). Would love to see y’all check it out!

  43. Amber O on December 21, 2022 at 2:07 am

    this is a great idea haha airport food is awful and overpriced, promoting local businesses nearby is awesome <3

  44. SRF PUNK on December 21, 2022 at 2:08 am

    You need to try the Pad Thai place right behind your video at Saltlake shopping center. Get the house fried chicken. 😋

  45. Rodel Quilalang on December 21, 2022 at 2:08 am

    Timing for this episode is great. Flying into HNL on Sunday morning before Labor Day. First stop, Joe’s Grill Express. Hope they can accommodate the five of us from California and the wait is short. Love your content. Thanks Amanda & Felix!

  46. kamilla_ph20 on December 21, 2022 at 2:09 am

    You guys are making wanting to move there for good lol.. The amazing food is calling my name.. I love and enjoy your vlog so much,.please don’t stop and love you guys..

  47. Herminio Hernando on December 21, 2022 at 2:11 am

    Thanks for another great video highlighting local places! Got to try Joe’s and Christine’s the next time we visit Hawaii! Thanks again for the great content!

  48. Tiffany Weekes on December 21, 2022 at 2:14 am

    This is so good cause sometimes you have time between check in and arrival. It’s all about that first bite off the plane more than Zippy’s 😅

  49. Dave Jimmy on December 21, 2022 at 2:16 am

    Joes’s Grill also has great Mexican Food

  50. baby baepsae on December 21, 2022 at 2:16 am
