The name of this restaurant is enough of a mouthful to be a meal in itself—many people shorten it to "Humuhumu." Aside from its name, the restaurant has also received high acclaim for its delicious seafood and its setting. It floats on a lagoon, surrounded by tropical flowers. The signature menu item is the spiny lobster, but be forewarned: it costs a pretty penny. To anyone who is still wondering about the name, it translates to the rather inexplicable phrase "Trigger Fish with a snout like a pig"—the Hawaiian state fish.
