Vegetable masala or gyro sandwich; an Angus “Warrior” burger or a quiche and salad; a bento box, Hawaiian plate, or a createyour-own fruit smoothie? You’ll find these ‘ono (delicious) edibles and more just steps away from your classroom on the Mānoa campus. There’s definitely no lack of places to eat at UH Mānoa, where your tastebuds can find an array of American, Mexican and Asian foods that are delicious, moderately priced, healthy and ready to go.
Food Services offers lunch trucks across campus which give great glimpses and tastes of island cuisine.
If you want to venture off campus, there are many delicious food options and local grocery stores to choose from in the surrounding neighborhoods of Mō‘ili‘ili and Mānoa. From Indian cuisine in Mō‘ili‘ili to a French-influenced European-style bakery in Mānoa Marketplace featuring fresh baked breads, pastries, pizzas… you have a multitude of culinary delights to choose from. There is a Safeway and a Long’s Drugs nearby, and if you are interested in trying a different type of market, then you’ll want to check out Nijiya Market, a unique Japanese Supermarket located just down the street from the University, which specializes in all-things Japanese. If you are looking for an all-vegetarian and organic alternative, we also have DownTo-Earth, the only ALL VEGETARIAN natural foods store in Hawai‘i… located right on University Avenue and King Street.
Vending machines are located across both upper and lower campus and offer a variety of cold beverages, snack and light meal options. Vending machine locations are available online.
