With the motto “local first, organic whenever possible and with Aloha always,” Town restaurant in Kaimuki changes its menu daily based on what ingredients are available. (It gets many of its greens from MA’O Organic Farms, for example.) And that’s just fine, because whatever you find being served that day is bound to be good. Selections range from local fish and meat to perfectly prepared pastas and risottos. It’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Tucked away on South King St., Aki-no-No is the kind of place you probably have passed hundreds of times yet never noticed. And that is a shame. It’s got a wide sushi and sashimi menu. Or get your fish steamed or grilled — offerings include opakapaka and moi. Pictured is Nabeyaki Udon, which is basically heaven in a bowl. Plus, in the constant (often futile) search for quality late-night eats, Aki-no-No has you covered there, too: It’s open until 2 a.m. daily (closed Monday).
