Hawaii Food Tours

A Little About Us...

Welcome to Hawaii Food Tours, my name is Matthew Gray. I love food. I live to eat. Ever since I was a little kid I was fascinated with aroma, color, and flavor. My mom taught me that foods made with love always taste best; she inspired me to become a gourmet chef. My formal training was in Los Angeles where I worked first as an apprentice, then up the ladder to executive chef. My curious palate allowed me to experiment with many types of styles and cuisines from all over the world. When I left the restaurant scene it was to be a personal chef to Hollywood celebrities, movie stars, and Rock & Roll bands. I won’t name-drop here; just ask me sometime and I’ll share some wild stories with you. In 1993 I moved to Honolulu. I became the food critic and restaurant reviewer for Hawaii’s largest daily newspaper, the Honolulu Advertiser. Hawaii Food Tours is a logical extension of my life’s devotion to good food and my desire to share culinary delights with others. I believe the best way to experience Hawaii is to taste it!

“I think of you nearly every day when I sit down to eat. I smile and miss the wonderful flavors you introduced me to. I want to thank you again for the most marvelous tour and day. I’m still talking about it to all my friends and can’t wait to come back to Hawaii to do another one. Matthew and Keira, you two are the best thing that’s happened to Hawaiian tours ever. To be with people who love food and love to talk about food and who plan their lives around food is too good to be true. I hope to see you again in the near future.” Anne Topp - Minneapolis, MN

The Hole-in-the-Wall Tour is like a Honolulu City Tour with stops at several mouth-watering local, ethnic, and exotic stops, including including restaurants, marketplaces, and two of Hawaii’s most famous bakeries, and a behind the scenes walking and tasting tour of Chinatown! Prepare your taste buds for about 15 to 20 different foods, pastries, fruits, noodles, barbecue, snacks... and maybe even a luscious Hawaiian cocktail! Make sure to bring a big appetite!

We organize a progressive dine around evening at 3 top eateries in Honolulu, each course paired with wine. If you are looking for something special and unusual, this tour is a great way to celebrate your anniversary, birthday or honeymoon!

“Forget volcanoes, waves and luaus, Hawaii Food Tours was the most memorable part of our trip. Great food, great company and exceptional hosts made this the unexpected “hit” of our stay. Run, don’t walk, and book this now. It will make all the difference.” Scott and Carole - New York
