 Big Island Restaurants

Finding good places to eat on the Big Island is kind of like shopping for shirts at Macy’s during a power failure.  You anticipate a good experience, you know you’re in the right neighborhood for success, and yet there’s a solid chance of a nasty surprise when the whole thing’s over and everything’s exposed in the light of day.  Great locations and harbor side views don’t always equate to the best food, although they can be found together from time to time.  I think the best recommendation for a good restaurant is not “Was it good?”, but “Would you go back there again?”  The places I’m going to mention here are those that if someone asks, “Would you like to go to ____?”, my only reaction is to scramble for my car keys and head full tilt out the door!  These are the best places we’ve found so far to eat on the island, in no particular order:

Hawaiian Style Cafe – When I die, bury me here.  It’s one of the best places on earth to eat breakfast in, and I’m not kidding.  They’ll smile, bring you a loaded plate of your favorite things and do their level best to kill you with calories.  I’m usually in here once or twice a week when I’m on island.

Broke da Mouth Grindz & Catering – Unbelievably good.  You can’t go wrong here – anything you order will be wonderful.  My favorite is the Furikake Chicken, but it’s only one of many.

Tex’s Drive In – Have you ever heard of Malasadas?  They’re this double handful of puffy, sugary goodness by way of Portugal.  Apparently they invented donuts but forgot the holes – leaving you more great stuff to eat in the middle.  Filled or plain, doesn’t matter.  Worth the trip to find, and you can even watch them as they’re made through big glass windows.  Don’t worry, they’re making them ALL DAY LONG,  which is how you’ll be eating them too unless somebody tows you away, like they do me.
