Chinatown

Honolulu’s Chinatown has been described as one of Hawaii’s most exciting and mysterious neighborhoods.

They are trying to retain the character of the mom-and-pop shops, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, and funky galleries that make this colorful 140-year-old neighborhood worth a visit.

I just have to admit that we had intended to have lunch in chinatown,
but every place we saw looked scary…..so in the end, we chickened out

Long live “commercial” Chinese food!
