Food Finds: Honolulu

Off the Wall

For an off-the-map meal, head down to Off the Wall, a local eatery putting its own unique spin on Hawai‘i favorites. Secreted away in Pearl Kai Shopping Center off of Kamehameha Highway, Off the Wall's chef and manager Kyle Matsumoto has been giving O‘ahu residents kanak attack (local "pidgin English" for when someone gets sleepy after eating too much) with his local cuisine featuring flavors from around the world.

Whenever we're feeling peckish we hele (move) on over for Off the Wall's off the charts shoyu pork andagi - a dessert and dinner combo which tastes as unusual (and delicious) as it sounds. Other local favorites include their shoyu pork pasta, "naked" ahi poke musubi, crab and artichoke wontons and arare karaage chicken (but not for those on a date).

If you can't decide what to order, go "izakaya style." Their small, pupu (appetizer)-sized portions are perfect for sharing and sampling their variety of cooked-to-order classics.

“Hi. My whole life I've been making this pnakace recipe that my sweet lovely mom gave me. I love pnakaces! Ha. The recipe, of course, calls for cows milk and eggs. I made this recipe today for the first time. Wonderful. I think I'll keep my mom's recipe close to heart but not in my belly. Thanks for showing me the way that pnakaces don't need to take from animals. I love your blog by the way. I've been a vegetarian for over 11yrs and always kinda wanted to adapt a vegan diet. You're recipe pages has been keeping me happy for the past 2 weeks. Thanks and keep up the good work. Take care: of others. xoxo”
