An NEH Summer Institute ~ June 12 to July 7, 2017 ~ Honolulu, Hawaii ~ Hosted by the Asian Studies Development Program
Grinds, Sweets, and Waterholes
There are many great eateries in the vicinity of the East-West Center,
and the cuisines you can find are as diverse as any metropolitan
city--Vietnamese, Thai, Indian, Japanese, Okinawan, Korean, Chinese,
Mediterranean, Italian, French, and of course, local-style plate lunches
as well as Hawaiian food. Some are located in walking distance, and
others are easily accessibly by TheBus,
the public transportation here in O'ahu. We have listed some high-end superb restaurants
for special occasions, but most of the eateries listed are reasonable.
Take advantage of Bring Your Own Beer restaurants and
enjoy wine, brew, or any libation of your choice with your meals.
On Fridays, there is a farmer's market
by the UHM campus center (on the bookstore entrance side, in front of
ATM machines). They typically start setting up around 7:00 am and start
breaking down around 1:30 pm. It is convenient to buy fresh fruits and
vegetables there instead of hiking up to Mānoa or go into town.
