There are many great eateries in the vicinity of the East-West Center, and the cuisines you can find are as diverse as any metropolitan city--Vietnamese, Thai, Indian, Japanese, Okinawan, Korean, Chinese, Mediterranean, Italian, French, and of course, local-style plate lunches as well as Hawaiian food. Some are located in walking distance, and others are easily accessibly by TheBus, the public transportation here in O'ahu. We have listed some high-end superb restaurants for special occasions, but most of the eateries listed are reasonable. Take advantage of Bring Your Own Beer/Beverage restaurants and enjoy your choice of wine, brew, or any alcohol with your meals.

On Tuesdays and Fridays, there is a farmer's market by the UHM campus center (on the bookstore entrance side, in front of ATM machines). They typically start setting up around 7:30 am and start breaking down around 2:00 pm. It is convenient to buy fresh fruits and vegetables there instead of hiking up to Mānoa or go into town.
