People eat three times a day to prevent mouthy mouths from brashly blurting out their distaste for the rest of the digestive system. Today's Groupon prevents intrasystem quarreling by subduing chatty cheeks with local Hawaiian eats: for $5, you get $10 worth of local-style plate lunches at Cooke Street Diner. Cooke's local-style platters and daily specials fill its menu with such savory fare as the breakfast special featuring two eggs, two scoops of rice or toast, and a choice of bacon, spam, corned beef hash, ham, spam, portuguese sausage, vienna sausage, or spam ($3.99). Or, try the Bigg O Melet, which loads plates with a three-egg omelette that includes a choice of two fillings and two scoops of rice or toast ($5.25+). Noontime diners can dive into daily specials such as Mama's Meatloaf and chicken adobo on Wednesdays.
