As most people would be bundled up at home during this hazy day... I went out to support small local business and stopped in Waikiki and OMG was it nice!
OMG (Oahu Mexican Grill) <2520 Kalakaua Ave. #200 Honolulu, Hi 96815> has opened it's doors in Waikiki on Kalakaua Avenue but not in the most obvious location. Positioned directly across from the beach on the 2nd floor is a casual dining Mexican grill. I personally loved that it was on the second floor and was a little hidden as it gives a good "hole in the wall" kind of appeal.
So, as I didn't plan to come in today, I wasn't as prepared to order a lot of food, but the one thing that caught my attention was the "OMG Queso con Chorizo" (Bowl of melted cheese and chilies topped with homemade chorizo and pico de gallo. Served with chips). My partner in crime ordered a (very large if I may say) "Vegetable Burrito". The dining area was large and many seats were positioned next to the window to enjoy the beautiful view of Waikiki beach. Another great thing is that they had air conditioning pumping through the restaurant which made for a very comfortable environment.
Be sure to take a look at their merchandise line. Lots of cute hats, shirts and coffee cups (IMO priced very well). OMG Waikiki also has a HAPPY HOUR that happens everyday along with an industry discount during certain times (for folks working in the service industry...proof that you work in the industry is necessary).
If you work in Waikiki or if you're an early riser, BREAKFAST is also available for you as OMG WAIKIKI has their "Breakfast with a view" daily from 7am - 11am. They have french toast, omelettes, breakfast tacos & burritos, AND a $ 6.99 breakfast special that includes eggs, bacon, rice or potatoes...COCKTAILS: if you're under the impression that "it's 5 o'clock somewhere", you could also order a $ 7.00 bloody mary or mimosa to wash down your breakfast. PARKING: The best place to park would be on the street if you could find a metered spot (that also accepts credit cards) or parking at the zoo is available for $ 1.00 per hour.
