My boyfriend and his family introduced me to Ethel’s Grill, literally, a hole-in-the-wall place in Kalihi. They have been wanting me to try their food for some time and I finally did! So many Japanese tourists line up to eat there. Just like at Boots & Kimo’s in Kailua (see post): Sunday Funday brunch lunch! Thankfully, when we went on a Saturday, it wasn’t too crowded, compared to other days.
It’s a small place, but it’s worth the wait! Their food was delicious- it had a homey feel- if you ask me. The atmosphere reminded me of those old school “mom and pop” joints. Very local. I also felt like the price was very reasonable for the amount of food that was given. See those yummy pics below. I was pretty stuffed at the end of my meal. I definitely want to go back to try more of their grinds.
All that was $8.75! You can’t go wrong with that price!
