Kaimuki is a thriving neighborhood filled with old school joints, corporate businesses, eclectic shops, yoga studios, and bougie food spots.

‘DROP IN’ ON THIS TASTY WAVE
Hop on board with one of Honolulu’s hottest new eateries, The Surfing Pig. Lined up on Waialae Avenue alongside several storefronts, this restaurant is lighting up the foodie scene with its quirky dishes and contemporary urban vibes. Take Brick Chicken ($24), for example. This plate comes packed with flavorful local flair, as the boneless chicken breast — with the drumette attached — is lightly seasoned, pressed and pan-fried to golden perfection. It is served with lightly spiced Sriracha fried rice loaded with pulled kalua pork. The pork, shares director of sales and marketing Anna Piergallini, is the establishment’s special recipe that is used from its sister restaurant, Kono’s. “We definitely have a lot of the signature Kono’s kalua pig in various dishes … so that’s how we mixed the two restaurants together.”…..Read More Here
