Especially of these eateries feature 100 percent grass-fed Big Island beef, local produce and milkshakes so thick you’ll hyperventilate trying to drink them.
That’s on the menu at Papa’s Burgers, a new family-owned burger spot in Market City Shopping Center, about a mile from the University of Hawaii-Manoa campus. It opened about four weeks ago to mostly rave reviews, and I wanted to check it out myself.
The menu is small but eclectic. It features eight signature burgers — bibimbap burger, pork and shrimp burger, black bean veggie burger — and a few sides. Some standouts include the freshly cut fries (made from whole potatoes) and the real ice cream shakes.
Here’s what my recent visit looked like:
Papa’s Burgers, Market City Shopping Center, 2919 Kapiolani Blvd. Hours: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Phone: (808) 732-5100

Dog kimono or yukata from Inu Inu Hawaii (www.inuinuhawaii.com)
Price: $30 online or at pet boutiques such as Calvin & Susie in Kilohana Square
The gist: Bored of the usual dog outfits? Or your pooch is quite the fashion diva? Get a kimono (or yukata) from Honolulu-based Inu Inu Hawaii, which specializes in unique Asian-inspired apparel for dogs. They come in all sizes — in fact, you can custom order ones for larger breeds — and patterns. Imagine your Rottweiler in one of these!
Best for: Dog owners, of course!
