HAWAII Magazine’s "75 Places to Eat Like A Local": For the Carnivore

Lucy’s Taqueria

This popular downtown Hilo taqueria serves up a full menu of tasty made-to-order Mexican food from family recipes. Everything’s good. But what gets Lucy’s listed here is its taqueria meat choices, ranging from the expected (beef, pork, chicken, chorizo) to street-food heaven (beef cheek, tongue, tripe).

Papa Ole’s Kitchen

The specialty of the house at this Windward Oahu eatery is its pulehu beef short ribs. Seasoned simply with sea salt, the marbled, meaty ribs are grilled-to-order, heavily charred (essentially the meaning of "pulehu") and served plate lunch-style with rice and macaroni salad. A marinated kalbi version of the ribs is just as tasty.
