If dining out is a big part of your life, you’re going to want to dig into Sunday’s Honolulu Star-Advertiser and separate out the ‘Ilima Awards restaurant guide.
The annual publication recognizes top Oahu restaurants, selected by our food writers and our readers.
We’ve got them from Alan Wong’s to Zippy’s, from high-end places with white tablecloths to neighborhood spots famed for plate-lunch fare.
You’ll also find a shortlist of 10 tasty indulgences from our food-obsessed writers, a roundup of our “Pau Hana Patrol” and “Grab and Go” features, and restaurant critic Nadine Kam’s annual wrap of the newest eateries.
At the top of the top are the two restaurants selected as the year’s best, one chosen by our readers and one by our critics. We’d give you the names of those restaurants, but it’s more fun if you wait until Sunday.
