Hawaii foodies a-twittering

Since I love cooking and eating (add me on Twitter too), here’s a list of Hawaii’s restaurants and chefs to follow.  Feel free to view my full list of all Hawaii travel Twitter accounts as well.  If you’re looking for a place to grab a bite or want to know what’s going on in Hawaii’s culinary scene, this list provides great Twitpics and mentions of new menu offerings and deals to save on your meals.  Feel free to leave a comment with additional restaurants and chefs that I should include.  Mahalo!

  1. Hey Mike, I love this list! I have a running list of where to eat on several of the islands and now I have some more to add from this list. Awesome!

    We went to Chef Mavro a few years back to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and I still love talking about it to this day. Certainly made for a wonderful anniv. dinner. I’m hoping we’ll be back there for our 15 yr. anniv. dinner.

    A few of my favorites are Sam Choy’s BL&C (love the breakfast loco moco selection and HVB), Ken Fong in Chinatown, Little Village Noodle House (also in C-town), and for splurging, Orchids.
