Open 7 Days a Week - 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM

As a fan of Man vs Food on the Travel Channel, we are always excited when we can visit one of the restaurants that are featured on the show.  While in San Francisco, we had to destinations that we wanted to visit.  The first was La Cumbre which is a Mexican restaurant that was the first to introduce large California style burritos.  The second was Ike's Place.  We paid $30 to take a taxi from our hotel to La Cumbre only to find out they do not open to 11:00 AM.  We were on a very tight schedule and could not wait so we walked about five blocks up the street to Ike's Place that opens at 10:00 AM.  There were about three people ahead of us when the doors opened.  I was kind of surprised when we walked in and found just a counter and board.  The place is pretty bare.  No tables or chairs.  I asked if they had a menu so I could examine it closely.  No menus I was told.  Order from the board or from the website.  We were here for the Kryptonite Sandwich that was featured on the television series Man vs Food (video below).  At $19.91 we figured it would be enough for our family of three.  While the Kryptonite was not listed on the board we asked the cashier if it was available and she said yes.  I wanted to order another sandwich so we could experience different tastes but the wife said no.  The Kryptonite was enough.  Boy was she right.  The kitchen cut the sandwich in half at our request and we had two huge halves that took us two days to finish.  The Kryptonite Sandwich contains; Two avocados, Beer Battered Onion Rings, Corned Beef, Extra Pepper Jack Cheese, Ham, Mozzarella Sticks, Pastrami, Pesto, Roast Beef, Salami, Stuffed JalapeƱo Poppers and Turkey.  All between some really fresh and delicious bread with lettuce and tomato.  In a word this was "heaven".  You could really taste every single ingredient.  The meats exploded with flavor.  You just cannot get a sandwich like this in Hawaii.  Nothing comes close.  This is a TASTE OF HAWAII FAVORITE!
