A more than 50-year-old throwback to the gastro-glories and tiki traditions of Hawaii's past, La Mariana solves its visitors' palate puzzles with the help of a broad menu encompassing some of the best of both surf and turf. Amidst a festively decorated interior heavy on natural materials and whimsical lighting, guests can enjoy the fork-ready finery of steak and prime rib, "local-style" curries, and a multitude of fresh seafood while chatting with the tiki-faced cups containing their mai tais, zombies, and other cocktails.

When Antonio “Trigo” Da Silva moved to Hawaii in 2007, he found a community of people who wanted to learn more about their own Portuguese heritage. That’s why he opened Adega Portuguesa Restaurant in Chinatown. There, visitors can sample traditional dishes such as Portuguese-style bean soup, Northern Portuguese–style codfish, or bitoque—a dish made by crowning a new york strip steak with brown gravy and a fried egg.
On Fridays and Saturdays, the eatery’s cooks also prepare Brazilian dishes such as feijoada, a medley of black beans, beef, pork, sausage, and bacon stewed with farofa and sliced orange. Beer, cocktails, and imported wines wash back each bite. In addition to tasting traditional foods, guests can dance to live Portuguese music or learn the native tongue in Portuguese language classes.
Air Park Karaoke Lounge offers its visitors the chance to be a star, if only for a handful of hours. Each of the 11 rentable rooms contain a full karaoke setup, allowing friends to belt in private without the worry of Michael McDonald dropping in unannounced to add harmonies. In each room, a 55-inch HDTV shows video and lyrics, while the system's vast catalogue includes tunes in English, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean—with songs updated monthly. There's also a more public space in their social lounge area, featuring a 70-inch plasma screen and a full bar that serves up beer, wine, and signature cocktails. And despite there being a room and drinks themed around Hello Kitty, Air Park Karaoke Lounge only admits those 21 and older.
