Some have suggested eat lunch out here before entering PCC as you will not eat at Luau or buffet till about 5:30. I ate at Pounders and found a new favorite dish - ahi katsu with garlic mash ulu (breadfruit) So ono!

Located adjacent to the Polynesian Cultural Center, this shopping/eating area caters to the typical tourist but some of the items can be very pricey. You can spend some time looking through all the shops. While there we actually saw Taylor Wily (Kamekona on Hawaii 5-0)...More
