Hard Rock Café has many restaurants worldwide, but only the Hawaii locations—Honolulu and Maui—offer a fresh-fish menu. We tried everything from the fajita-style ahi
to the fresh catch of the day. Here are our favorites.

Fresh Catch offers Island-style plate lunches and 25 styles of poke—many unusual varieties on Oahu. Must tries? The ahi stuffed crab roll and the fireball ahi poke.

Sam Sato's, Inc. may sound more like an office supply company, rather than a restaurant. But here you'll find Maui's best dry
noodles—which aren't really dry at all.

One of my favorite Maui restaurants in Kihei is Peggy Sue's, a 50s-style diner.
Walking into this burger-and-shake joint is like a trip back in time.

Have you been to the Southern-
most bake shop in the U.S.A.? The only bakery that can claim this title is Punaluu Bake Shop on the Big Island.

Since sushi is one of my favorite foods, I had to try Kai Sushi, the new Japanese restaurant that opened when the Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, remodeled.

Uncle Bobo's Smoked Pork BBQ, on Oahu's North Shore, is a favorite of the actors of "Lost" and of the HAWAII Magazine staff. Try the pork shoulder sandwich.

You can find something good to eat at more than shrimp trucks on Oahu's North Shore. For instance, Ted's Bakery.

When it comes to Oahu's North Shore, two things come to mind: big waves and shrimp trucks. You can find many of the mobile restaurants along Kamehameha Highway, including Giovanni's Aloha Shrimp.

I was a fan of the Super Burrito at La Taqueria de Ramiro on Fort Street Mall in Honolulu. Now I'm a Fried Wet Burrito fan. Let me explain.

When I have cravings for bun cha gio thit nuong (a Vietnamese dish consisting of rice vermicelli, barbeque pork and spring rolls), I like to go to Vietnam Café Pho Saigon.

To celebrate the impending weekend, I spent my lunch break near the ocean, eating endless amounts of Hawaiian food.
