D'oh....just noticed this restaurant (?) is closed down!

Aloha from Kaua'i!

I've been meaning to post this info for at least a week - when I noticed that it was shut and shuttered.

The Oki Diner in Lihu'e is no more - it used to be on the main highway next to McDonald's - then it moved more recently to the corner of Rice and Haleko Street - but it is no more and I see no signs that it has moved.

I drive by the place everytime I go to work at the Museum, so at least today I finally got it on here - I couldn't find another post that mentioned it (kala mai if there was one!).....so.....there it is (no great loss IMO!).

Malama Pono,

Noooooo! It was only 5 days to that homemade coconut syrup on macnut pancakes : (

I guess it's Hamura's for saimen and lilikoi pie after the late arrival flight.

DENNY:

Thanks for the suggestions. THE (as in all caps for a reason!) Beach Hut is a must at least once for us. Best Teriyaki burger if you're not up near Duane's! And Tip Top is a cultural experience as well as great food! And thanks for the heads up on Market Street. Will let you know what we think as we're staying nearby for part of our Christmas trip.

Oki pancakes alive and well! So good!

Barbara Oki's son opened a restaurant called 2978. He flips his mama's pancakes (banana and/or macnut) with choice of coconut and/or maple syrup. It is that same lush coconut syrup his mom developed. His mother now has a line of dry coconut mix...just add water and voila! The restaurant is in the front portion of "Richie's" sports bar and grill and is at 2978 Umi St. in Lihue. Umi St. is parallel to Rice St., the restaurant is a block down from Kiibo Japanese Restaurant and caddy-corner to Aloha Furniture Company.
