HAWAII Magazine’s "75 Places to Eat Like A Local": From the Sea

Continued from previous page

Mama's Fish House

At some point in our lives, every seafood-loving Hawaii resident comes home to Mama’s. If we’re really fortunate, however, we get to return to the oceanside Paia restaurant, each time savoring the unique joy of selecting our fish and other seafood delicacies from a menu so fresh-catch-focused it credits the fishermen who brought in the fishy haul.

Nico's at Pier 38

Yes, despite its expansion (now including an indoor “boat bar”), Nico’s still has a line out the door come lunchtime. Time it right, though, and you can at least score a table while you wait. You’ll be well-rewarded with doesn’t –get-fresher-than-this selections procured from next-door Honolulu Fish Auction. Worth the wait, in our opinion: Nico’s seared ahi poke salad and fried ahi belly.
