Unable to use Entertainment Book, travelling solo. Any ideas on how to eat very-very-very cheaply during a 9 day stay?

    You can eat very cheaply in waikiki. Grocery stores are very expensive and it will actually cost you more to eat at home -- and it won't taste nearly as good. Diamond Head Market sells a plate lunch that is out of this world for less than ten bucks. Irifune on Kapahulu has amazing gyoza and seared ahi for cheap, and it's BYOB. There's a thai restaurant downtown in a dive bar, I can't remember its name, but it has the best thai outside thailand for almost nothing. Arnold's malasaladas (also on kapahulu) are 60 cents each and three of those will fill you up til waaaay past lunchtime. ABC stores have boiled eggs (some think they're gross, i don't) and fresh pineapple for cheapcheapcheap, and 7-Elevens sell decent sushi for two bucks. You can easily save lots of money on breakfast & lunch and then not have to worry about how much your dinner (or cocktail) is! Check out for more ideas. Have fun!
