The Island of Hawaii
Diners can find a variety of cuisines in Hawaii. The dominant Asian and South Pacific island cultures exercise their influence over most menus, with an increasing emphasis on family recipes and local ingredients. Make sure to try the seafood, including Hawaii’s signature Ahi Poke, and any other fish that arrives freshly caught. The Kona side of the island has a larger number of dining options and types of cuisine, while Hilo offers a selection of smaller stand-alone restaurants.
