I love cruising the back side of Diamond Head.  Before getting married I actually ran 5 miles around Diamond Head and Kapiolani Park 5-6 days a week because I liked the runners rush, being outdoors, seeing shorts and bikinis and I had no money to do anything else.  Running was a big part of my life back then and eating was usually a bowl of Ramen Noodles.  Diamond Head Market and Grill was on my running route as I ran up Monsarrat Avenue toward Kapiolani Community College and the entrance to Diamond Head Crater.  Fast forward to today and I drove right up and parked in front of Diamond Head Market and Grill.  We walked up to the window where you place your order and reviewed the menu of Burgers, Sandwiches, Plate Lunches and Salads.  I popped my head in the window and saw a cook on the line at my left.  He was cooking on the grill but turned to the window and looked at me.  Seemed a bit pissed off that he had to cook and work the window.  He did not say much but started to take our order.  After he took our order another man came to the window and took over so the cook could return to the grill.  Trying to keep in healthy, I went for one of the Daily Specials.  The Garlic Herb Chicken Breast Gyro ($12).  Tasted like a regular Gyro but with chicken.  Not bad at all.  Served with Romaine Lettuce with a Honey Mustard dressing.  The Dressing was light and they did not over pour it on the lettuce so I liked it.  The Spicy Korean Chicken with Kalbi Ribs ($14) was a nice plate of food.  The Chicken was not too spicy but had a good flavor.  The Kalbi Ribs were delicious.  Served with Rice, Kim Chee and Salad.  Everyone liked the Kim Chee here.  The Kalbi Beef Rib Plate ($13.75) put a smile on my Daughters face.  She was quite quiet as she emerged herself into the ribs as she chew the fat off the bones and then sucked them clean.  The Kalbi Ribs here are excellent.  Food here while not cheap is quality and good.  There is also a small market where you can buy pre-made sandwiches, salads and entrees to take home or to a picnic.  They also have some really tasty looking Scones and desserts too.  Great place to pick up supplies for a day at the beach.
