If you’re in Oahu and want to try authentic Hawaiian food, head over to Young’s Fish Market. The lines at the recommended Trip Advisor places tend to be long. Young’s is a pretty good hidden secret.
They have been around since 1951.
“Opened as a small Liliha Street market by Wilfred and Charlotte Young, Young’s Fish Market was originally what its name implies: a store that sold fish.
As time passed, Wilfred started selling Chinese groceries and preserved seeds in order to offset the slow times in the fishing seasons. Later, he began to cook Chinese dishes. A friend’s suggestion to cook Hawaiian food led to what Young’s Fish Market is today, a charming Hawaiian/Chinese restaurant and fish-specialty store with really good local-style food.”
While they offer a spread of local dishes, we went there for poke and their poke was ono.
