First, there was The Puka Guide. Then The Okazu Guide and The Omiyage Guide. Now local-style foodies Donovan M. Dela Cruz and Jodi Endo Chai are back with a fully updated and revised Puka Guide, this time with favorite hole-in-the-wall dining spots, the inside scoop on okazu-ya (local delis) and the best omiyage (souvenir goodies) stops on all major Hawaiian Islands. The best of the three previous guides are now combined into a single, easy-to-use pocket guidebook covering the whole state.

The Puka Guide: 100 Hawaiian-Style Hole-in-the-Wall Restaurants offers an island-by-island tour of “local-style dining off the beaten path.” From bentos to barbecue, The Puka Guide features 100 local favorites—saimin stands, drive-ins, ethnic restaurants, and okazu-ya; notable omiyage stops are marked with a special icon — and includes photographs and detailed information on hours, parking, seating and house specialties. With listings on Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island, this handy guidebook proves that, as Dela Cruz believes, “the road to a great eatery is never long.” The authors also provide insider tips on the best “grinds,” as well as pre-ordering strategies to ensure that a coveted package of omiyage goodies is available for the trip home.
