Oahu Food Tours

A guide to culinary tours, restaurant tours, cooking lesson tours, and other food-related tours and activities on the island of Oahu in Hawaii.

Matthew Gray's Hawaii Food Tours
Food writer Matthew Gray offers three different restaurant tours in Honolulu, including an afternoon hole-in-the-wall tour that combines Honolulu history with eating at four of Oahu's best small local and ethnic cafes, and an evening food and wine tour that includes a multi-course dinner and several different wines served at three of Honolulu's best restaurants. For more information visit Matthew's Web site or call 808-926-3663.

Celebrity Chef Culinary Events
Gourmet Cooking Hawaii organizes special culinary events for tour groups and corporate groups, but they also offer celebrity chef cooking lessons and demonstration events to the public several times a year. Those events have featured some of the top chefs of Hawaii including Sam Choy, Alan Wong, and Chef Mavro. For reservations or more information contact 808-735-7788.

Chinatown Culinary Walking Tour by Anthony Chang
Food writer Anthony Chang guides a two to three hour walking tour of Chinatown at 9:00 every Monday. Anthony Chang. The group visits noodle shops and factories, dim sum parlors, roasted meat stalls, food courts, and bakeries. The tour meets in front of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce, located upstairs at 42 North King Street. I believe th cost of the tour is $10 but check with the organizers to confirm the price and to confirm the tours are still happening: 808-533-3181.

Honolulu's Best Unexplored Asian Restaurants
Walter Rhee also leads a tour of Chinatown cafes called "Honolulu's Best Unexplored Asian Restaurants". That tour is every Saturday from 11:30 to 2:30 pm. The tour begins near the Hawaiian National Bank Between King and Smith Streets. I believe the price of the tour is $59, but check with the organizers to confirm (808-391-1550). Reservations are required for this tour.

A Tribute to Ranjhit Cooray
For several years Ranjit Cooray, of the University of Hawaii's Lyon Aboretum, led "Discovering Ingredients" culinary tours of Chinatown twice a year. We are sad to report that Ranjit Cooray died on January 5, 2001.
