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. To the near-by neighborhoods--Mo'ili'ili and Pucks Alley on the University Ave., Kaimukī around Wai'alae Ave., and Mānoa, you can take free shuttle services that the UHM offers. 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 Beverage/Beer restaurants and enjoy your choice of wine, brew, or any alcohol with your meals.
On Tuesdays and 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 7:30 am and start breaking down around 2:00 pm. It is convenient to buy fresh fruits and vegetables there instead of hiking up to Mānoa or go into town.
