Enjoy a gourmet meal for under $20
“From the line to the plate” is French-born chef Nico Chaize’s motto. Chaize spent years working at some of Hawaii’s top eateries before setting up shop himself on Honolulu Harbor. Each morning the freshest fish caught in Hawaiian waters is sold at auction across from Chaize’s eatery. His restaurant, Nico’s at Pier 38 Restaurant & Fish Market, buys this fresh catch straight from the auction and serves it up the same day in a variety of interesting and delicious ways. Try the fresh ahi tuna steak coated with Japanese dried seaweed and sesame seeds then cooked to order and served with homemade ginger garlic cilantro dip and Asian coleslaw or the ahi belly steaks (pictured above) which are quickly deep-fried and topped with a spicy tomato salsa. Each of these dishes, including a seafood pasta with fish, shrimp, and clams in a light lemon lobster sauce, will set you back less than $15. There is absolutely no better (or more affordable) way to enjoy the finest delicacies the North Pacific has to offer.
