There is a Yardhouse not far from the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Actually, I'll be staying at the HHV in August, sure you can't hold off for a month?
For food, try the Side Street Inn, it's on the far side of the Ala Moana shopping center on Hopaka Street. I suggest the kimchee fried rice and the pork chops. Good stuff!
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)
