Our first question asked for gluten-free restaurant recommendations. Cat recommended Alan Wong’s Restaurant, 12th Ave Grill, Juicy Brew and Ethiopian Love Restaurant. They’re very accommodating to dietary restrictions, especially if you call ahead. Kevin recommended The Beet Box Cafe on the North Shore.
Next, Cat and Kevin talked about the beautiful Ni‘ihau shell lei that are available at Kaua‘i lei stands like JJ ‘Ohana in Hanapēpē. On O‘ahu, they recommend taking a lei-making class with Meleana Estes at Queen Kapiʻolani Hotel. On Hawai‘i Island, they recommend stopping at Hana Hou in Hilo, a shop featuring expertly crafted items.
Another listener asked about why visitors shouldn’t stack rocks in Hawai‘i—Cat and Kevin recommend checking out these videos made in collaboration between the Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority and the Hawaiʻi Visitors and Convention Bureau. And if you’re looking for happy hour spots on Maui, check out this website to filter and find the best place for you.
And finally, Cat and Kevin answered a question from someone planning to move to Hawai‘i. Online marketplaces like those on Craigslist and Facebook can be a good starting point for anyone looking to find housing or furniture, but it’s always good to do extra research to make sure a location best suits your needs.
