About This Place

Other Details
Chef Colin NishidaChef Colin Nishida is a local, no-nonsense kinda guy, never afraid to speak his mind, but very humble. While his restaurant has received several culinary awards, he’ll be the first to tell you that he didn’t receive any formal culinary training and shies away from the title “Chef”. He credits his mom, Kay, with sparking his interest in the kitchen: cooking rice for dinner as soon as he got home from school. What evolved from this chore at home was a natural talent of preparing truly local comfort food with heart. Twenty years after his first kitchen job as a dishwasher/cook for C’s Diner in Kalihi, Colin found himself at the forefront of his own establishment, Side Street Inn, still in the same Kaka’ako location. What started out as a small “hole-in-the-wall” local bar with good food quickly turned into a larger “hole-in-the-wall” local bar (nearly four times its original size) with good food- only now, it is the favorite stomping grounds of some of the world’s culinary masters

The food is good, no doubt. But the space itself is kind of dirty and needs updating. It is difficult to find, basically the front door is in an alley. But that's fine, we knew that going in....

ここは有名シェフも通うと言われるグルメな穴場、サイドストリートイン。アラモアナショッピングセンター側の裏道にあります。決して小洒落たお店ではなく、味で勝負みたいな所。あまりに人気過ぎて、カパフルにも店舗が出来たんですよね〜。でもこちらの本店は、古いながらに味があります(笑)ここのキムチチャーハンは有名です。とにかく、どれもボリュームが凄いので、一人で食べようとは思わないことですよ...

サイドストリートインの本店、アラモアナにあります。ここはいつも人気で満員御礼。週末予約をしていない場合はかなり待つのを覚悟で。看板メニューはフライドライス。必ずといっていいほど、どのグループもオーダーしています。私はキムチバージョンがお気に入り。かなりの大皿なのでグループで1つで十分。他にもポキや刺身があるかと思えばカルボナーラなんてパスタがあったり、結構何でもありなメニュー...
