Diamond Head Market & Grill, Diamond Head

HONOLULU | Diamond Head Market & Grill is a two part venue just a short walk from Honolulu’s famed volcanic cone, Diamond Head. It’s a great option if you’re looking for delicious, quality Hawaiian comfort food.

It’s owned by local award-winning chef Kelvin Ro, who has built a career on cooking local food, infused with Asian flavours, being keenly involved with the community, and helping to train the next generation of chefs.

At Diamond Head Market & Grill, Kelvin and his team create a variety of dishes that incorporate influences from all of the cultures of Hawaii. The focus is on quality, local ingredients, and a connection with culture. Everything, including sauces, marinades, and dressings, is made on site where possible.

At the grill, which is a takeout counter only, made-to-order items include things like loco moco, wasabi shoyu ahi steak, teri-burgers, galbi ribs, and char sui pork. In the adjoining market, you’ll find grab and go items like sandwiches, bento boxes, and salads, along with an assortment of baked cakes, puddings, and more.

Note that as of the time of writing (19 August 2022), Diamond Head Market & Grill isn’t open for breakfast. Lunch, however, is served from 10:30am, and the market portion is still open from 7:30am.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
