I always have a plate lunch every time I stay in Hawaii. I love Hawaiian plate lunch. There is a famous plate lunch place that has a history, loved by locos for a long time with a reasonable price. A must eat in Oahu!
You can locate the place by its rainbow colored signboard. Although it is a little far from central Waikiki, during lunchtime it gets very crowded. Most customers seems to drive here.
“Rainbow Drive-In” became famous when President Obama mentioned as one of his favorite during his vacation in Hawaii which spread out throughout the United States. After having a lunch at such a reasonable price, I have also understood why.
There are various selections of menus, which took time for me to figure out which one to choose. I saw a positive review of the gravy sauce so I went for the Loco Moco which was insanely delicious.
By the way my husband ordered mix plate, gravy sauce in his hand on the photo above. “Rainbow Drive-in” is definitely worth a visit!
