Sekiya's Restaurant & Delicatessen
This old-school island restaurant opened its doors in Kalihi in 1935, selling plate lunches for 10 cents during World War II. The restaurant settled at its current location in Kaimuki in the mid 1950s, where it's been serving up classic American, local, and Japanese comfort food, like sandwiches, malts, saimin, and oxtail soup ever since. Family-friendly and quick, this is a favorite stop for locals with large groups, especially before 3pm when their buffet is open. Visit the Koi pond out back for an infusion of good luck before you leave.
