@AlyshaKomenaka Unfortunately, I talk a ton.  Also, I had a blood draw earlier in the day so I was on a 24+ hour fast.  Let's just say it wasn't my most shining moment.  I probably ate for 3 that day.

I am a member at Nuuanu and it is fantastic!  The staff is friendly, the facilities are clean, they have racquetball courts, love it!

@Myong The soft opening was well-attended by Japanese nationals and tourists (I think the name of the brand will attract tourists, expats and nationals living here- kind of like Little Sheep).  


The aspect of it being a fun and lively atmosphere and large beers might be a good attraction for a younger clientele looking for a guy's/girl's night out.

Koko Crater is pretty intense especially when the sun is out.  Really gets the heart rate up and I always end up sweating buckets!  Worth the beautiful sunrise in the early mornings for sure.

@Melissa808 @MyongChoi I agree with Myong on Char Hung Sut being overrated.  I always end up with a pile of bun that I end up throwing away. I'm a big fan of Aiea Manapua and Snacks (not my #1) but definitely one of my top 5.

@trdtaco Hawaiian style with limu is my go-to everywhere I get poke, theirs was really good.  Good flavor and good with a ton of rice.  The ahi bones and ahi katsu are winners too!

@vickie c China has a lot of problems in the public health sector- I've watched these guys work and they are very conscious about their sanitary standards. They have a green placard and they use gloves. Kekaulike Marketplace where they're located is air conditioned, a rarity in our Chinatown. 


Go take a look at if it doesn't feel right, you can always go somewhere else.

Ace and Gary are definitely the top for me. Such ridiculous animation and writing.  I also like the "Cork Soakers" sketch and Celebrity Jeopardy.
