Food:
Below are some of my personal favorite places…all highly recommended, but I left off a few places…there is so much good food on Oahu. Best bet is to ask the locals…they know best:)

ONE FANTASTIC RESTAURANT that didn’t make the video, but is absolutely delicious is Marukame Udon Noodles in Waikiki. I only didn’t include it, because it’s already so well known. Also Dat Cajun Guy in Hale’iwa is another excellent spot that didn’t make the video.

  1. The Pig and The lady best sandwich in the country LMAO …. Try one of Tony Luke's cheesesteak in South Philadelphia, Pa

  2. In order to not let the Chinese piss you off, you need to look at them as one giant freak show, how the next group will top the last one doing the most bizarre shit you have ever seen, or when they do the most socially retarded shit you could imagine any human trying to do.
    I won't go to Oahu again, especially Waikiki, they are out of fucking control and make the area completely suck.

  3. Thanks so much for all the amazing tips! I watched like 5 times to take down all the notes, and many spots you mentioned also match my friends’ suggestions. Will be in Hawaii in 10 days, can’t wait!!!

  4. Lived on Oahu for about 3 years, and loved it, miss lots of people that treated me like part of the ohana and showed much Aloha. Btw- Alicia's market for poke and Baldwin's for shave ice👍

  5. Very important tip from myself and my husband !! 😩🤣 Do not ! Do not go into The Ala Moana mall spending money because taxes are cheaper. Especially the LV store lol Hike, drink, and enjoy yourselves !!!! 😘

  6. This video was a staple of our Hawaiian vacation planning and I find myself watching it while here. Matt, you’re the man! Appreciate the endless knowledge and suggestions.

  7. Should warn the tourists about Sandy’s and jumping head first into waves. Tired of hearing tourists getting paralyzed doing stupid sh**. 🙄🙄🙄
