SIDE STREET INN ON DA STRIP OPERATIONS MANAGER ROBBIE ACOBA SERVES UP SAMPLE PLATES DURING MONDAY’S HAWAII’S BEST AWARDS GALA AT THE PACIFIC CLUB.

In case you missed it, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser asks readers to participate and vote for their favorites in the annual Hawaii’s Best Awards. This year’s winners were announced in print on Sunday, with a gala banquet at the Pacific Club on Monday for all the awardees.

Side Street has enjoyed much success with readers over the years, and 2014 was no different with chef Colin Nishida’s two locations sharing first place awards for Best Pupus, Best Pau Hana Hangout and Best Sports Bar.

To celebrate, the Kapahulu restaurant will offer a special freebie on Friday morning — free fried rice for everyone. No purchase necessary. For real.

The one catch? You’ve got to be a morning person. The free fried rice will only be served from 7 to 8:30 a.m.

Side Street on Da Strip is located at 614 Kapahulu Avenue. Call (808) 739-3939 or visit sidestreetinn.com.
