Oahu, Hawaii

Reviews by Rosemary McClure, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer In Waikiki, tourist food comes in two flavors: exorbitant and outrageous. This becomes clear to visitors when they walk into the restaurant at their beachfront hotel and find their only option is a breakfast buffet that serves up bacon and bankruptcy. They'll shell out $20 or more a person for eggs and pineapple juice. Lunch? Expect to pay $21 for a burger, fries and a soda. The dinner buffet will tally about $35 each. And then, of course, there's the hotel luau -- chalk up about $100 a person. But what's a visit to Hawaii without living high on the hog at a hotel pig roast? You might not have another chance to savor poi or watch hula dancers. Oh yes, you will. We're going to tell you how.Ron Garnett / Los Angeles Times
