Wahoo's Fish Tacos

Fish Tacos
I have now eaten at Wahoo's Fish Tacos twice and the best I can say about this place is that it's "okay."  Although there are a few decent places (i.e. Cholo's on the North Shore), Hawaii is not known for its Mexican food.  In downtown Honolulu, Wahoo's is one of your only options.  I don't recommend their chips and salsa, AT ALL.  The chips are stale and the salsa is bland.  The fish tacos were also not particularly appetizing.  The fish was dry and the portions were small.  One nice thing about this place is that you can order your food "a la carte," which means "without beans and rice."  I have never been a huge fan of refried beans and rice.  So it's nice that you don't have to pay for it if you're not going to eat it.

The best thing I have tried thus far is the burrito. They have chicken, steak, and fish burritos.  I have had the fish and a chicken/steak combo.  I recommend the chicken/steak combo.  Also, get your burrito "wet."  A wet burrito, like the one pictured below, is simply a burrito that they smother is a spicy green chile sauce.  If you absolutely love spicy food, you may be disappointed.  There is not much "kick" to it.  That said, it is hearty and has a good flavor.  If you're visiting and desperately need a Mexican fix, I recommend waiting until you make it to the North Shore.  If you absolutely cannot wait, then stop by Wahoo's.
