Kickin Kajun – the Best Crawfish joint in Hawaii on 1518 Makaloa Street across from the Keeaumoku Walmart.
I had the pleasure of coming to Kickin Kajun again this weekend with a few of my friends, as we were craving lobster, fresh oyster, shrimps, and of course their yummy breadsticks.
We know to get there early to beat their long wait line – this place is super popular now. With good reason, but it’s so crowded I want them to open a bigger restaurant already!
We already knew whatever we had we would get spicy Cajun sauce mix.
The last time I went I ordered the lobster and then I tried everyone else’s dishes, like the shrimp, crawfish, oysters (with Japanese ponzu sauce), Cajun fries, salt and pepper shrimp, and their sausage.
Shrimps are $12.99/lb, Crabs are $17.99/lb and lobsters are $25. They also have crawfish for $11.99, oysters for $25 and clams for $12.99 I believe. Combo #2: a pound of crawfish, shrimp, clams & one big lobster for $50! It also comes with rice and some sausages. If you like hot/spicy, you can try ghost chili sauce with the heat ranging from 5 x to 100 for $2.
No matter what you get it’s going to be awesome. I am an avid regular to Kickin Kajun, and without fail, the food has been cooked perfectly every time. NOTHING was ever over cooked and/or rubbery and they’re definitely consistent on the taste of everything… or that was just me dipping everything in the sauce 5 times before eating it. Most things are priced per pound, but the lobster is priced per lobster, worth it though, they are huge! I also really liked the deep fried scallops with the fries. The scallops come out looking like they’re tator tots and when you bite into them they’re crisp on the outside but moist and soft on the inside and paired with their tartar sauce its perfect! You can substitute the regular fries for the sweet potato or Cajun fries, but the Cajun fries had a bit too much spice on them the first time I tried them and the regular fries aren’t bad at all.
This place is AMAZING and so AFFORDABLE! Come hungry, get there early, leave happy and stuffed. Warning the medium is still pretty spicy, but we love it! Leave some space for their Deep Fried Oreo’s with two scoops of vanilla ice cream.
The staff is very efficient and attentive; everything was worth the money. Oh yeah and this place is BYOB.
Whether you are going to Oahu for the first time or have been coming here for many years, this is the best kept secret on the island. Located on the east side of beautiful island Oahu, Waimanalo Beach is one of my favorite beaches to visit. As you all might know, this island is small and it only takes about 30-minutes driving from Waikiki to get to this destination.
I go to Waimanalo beach almost every weekend to just relax and get away from my regular weekday routine. You won’t see too many tourists at this place, but you will see a lot of locals who live in the area or just enjoying their weekend journey. The water is a beautiful light blue and the sand is fine and white most of the time.
Waimanalo Beach is located in the east side of Island of Oahu and about 30-minutes driving distance from Waikiki. If you are driving, you can hop on H-1 East from Waikiki and continue to go straight and you will see these beautiful beaches on your right side. You can also search “Waimanalo Beach Park” on the google maps and they will give you the guide to get there.
“You might think this beach is little far, but trust me for great scenery and relaxing time…..”
