What A no-frills sports bar, Side Street is an after-hours hangout for Honolulu’s top chefs (Alan Wong and Roy Yamaguchi are regulars). It also provides workaday Honolulu with a hearty selection of fried pork chops, barbecued spare ribs, and the island’s creamiest macaroni salad.

Who Chef Colin Nishida buys chow fun noodles from a mom-and-pop shop in Honolulu’s Chinatown and serves organic microgreens grown in Waimanalo.

Don’t miss Grab a stool at the bar and try the potent cocktails (the house specialty is the Side Mui: vodka, Kahlúa, sour mix, and dried plum powder) and exceptional pu pus (bar snacks), from fried wontons to steamed Manila clams.
