While in Waikiki, if you’re looking for that perfect souvenir T-shirt or Ukelele, visit International Marketplace on Kalakaua Avenue. Across from the Outrigger Waikiki Hotel, International Marketplace is an outdoor flea market-like area with various small stands and stores that mainly sell clothing, but there are stores that sell unique items such as ukeleles, handcrafted wooden tikis, and hawaiian jewelry.
Also, there’s a Hank’s Haute Dog “express” (they don’t sell the full menu) as seen on Triple D’s (Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives) which is plastered all over the walls to remind you. I have tried this satellite restaurant and I was quite disappointed. The hot dogs were underwhelming but the fries and pineapple ice were standouts. Expect to pay at least $10.
There is also a place in the food court where you can get Dole Whip, pineapple frozen yogurt. If you don’t have time to visit the Dole Plantation in central Oahu, then this is a good place to try their famous Dole Whip. You won’t be disappointed. Picture of the storefront below.
