The Alley Restaurant
You probably didn't know you needed an Asian diner/bowling alley hybrid in your life, but one visit to this Aiea gem and you'll realize you really, really do. Don't believe me? Park yourself in the casual dining area (after you rack up strikes in the neon-lit bowling alley, of course) for some Asian-influenced comfort food like oxtail soup, garlic shrimp, or the fan-favorite Tasty Chicken (fried chicken dipped in a "secret" sauce of sweet soy, garlic, and chili flakes) and you'll be hooked. It's also worth a trip here just for a taste of the infamous lemon crunch cake: Multiple layers of moist cake are held together with rich lemon curd, and topped with whipped cream and bits of toffee. Used bowling shoes and tempting Asian dishes can coexist, as it turns out.
