About This Place
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
