With Oahu’s second Stay-at-Home order in full effect, retailers, restaurants, and other forms of entertainment around the island have shut down in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19. While lockdown may have us stuck inside for the next couple of weeks, here are some ways to make the time a little more exciting while supporting our Hawaii businesses from a safe distance away.

Takeout and Delivery Options at Waikiki Beach Walk®

Many eateries were required to halt dine-in service, but through takeout, delivery, and curbside pickup, these Waikiki Beach Walk® restaurants are able to continue providing delicious dishes for a night in at home.

Taormina Sicilian Cuisine

Taormina Sicilian Cuisine recently launched a new online ordering system on their website to make the process easier for those looking to satisfy their Italian cuisine craving. Use the code CIAO upon checkout to receive a 15% kamaʻaina discount off of your order. Curbside pickup is available right in front of the restaurant, which is located on Lewers Street, or you can choose delivery for a $10 flat rate fee—a portion of which will go towards the Hawaii Agricultural Foundation.

Beachwalk Café

Sometimes all it takes is a hearty sandwich to hit the spot. Beachwalk Café is a local Hawaii business that specializes in Vietnamese-style sandwiches either on a French baguette or soft, flaky croissant as well as paninis, soups, and a variety of macarons. The eatery recently revamped their menu (seen below), so now is a great time to try their French-Asian flavors for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
