Honolulu Food Tour: Best of Chinatown
From US$138.38
Explore the classic tastes and cutting-edge flavors of Honolulu’s Chinatown on a 2.5-hour food walking tour of this historic cultural crossroads. Follow your guide along a 1.5-mile (2-km) route, and pause for a series of tastings at locally-loved restaurants and cafés. Learn how Oahu’s colonial and immigrant histories shaped Chinatown's culinary traditions, fill up on island flavors that meld Asian cuisines with American classics, then finish your tour in the heart of the city. 
What to Expect
Meet your guide at one of Honolulu’s most celebrated new restaurants, the Pig and the Lady, opened by a young Vietnamese chef who was born and raised in Honolulu. Hear the story of the family-run restaurant as you slurp delectable smoked bacon pho (Vietnamese noodle soup) and plunk a French dip sandwich into their signature pho au jus.

During the 2.5-hour stroll, your guide shares facts about Honolulu's Chinatown, one of the oldest in the United States. Stop into local eateries to sample an award-winning pizza topped with Hawaiian flavors followed by a tasting of garlic chicken and Thai fried chicken with a sweet-and-sour sauce. Try a Korean twist on a Hawaiian favorite loco moco, a dish where white rice is usually topped with hamburger patty, fried egg and gravy. Then finish off with one of the most decadent cheesecakes to be found on Oahu.

After a delectable array of tastings, your tour ends in Chinatown where you can explore further on your own or make your way to your next destination.

Please note: This is a sample itinerary. The dishes might change due to availability. If you have food allergies, please specify them at the time of checkout in the "special requirements" field.

Great intro to Chinatown's top food places

Highly recommended! My wife and I did the Chinatown Area Food Tour with Ryan, in late April 2014. Probably the best Pho (Vietnamese noodle soup) I've had in my life, and the crispy duck pizza, asian fried chicken, and cheesecake dessert were also delicious highlights...More
