Side Street Inn, Honolulu

4 of 13

On an island
where space is the prized commodity, strange couplings occur. Like karaoke and
fried chicken. Side Street Inn, a chef’s hangout in Honolulu, has come into
local fame (which is spreading since Anthony Bourdain stopped by in 2009) for
its frying rap sheet. The big kahuna is the fried pork chops. The filler is the
kimchi fried rice. But the unheralded find is chef Colin Nishida’s fried
chicken, which blends his Asian roots and Polynesian bent. Just save room for
your turn belting out a ukulele-backed Black Eyed Peas hit.
