the dish on j.j. dolan's

food always seems to dominate my trips home. while wine is typically nowhere to be found, my fella and i are dined almost 24/7 between meetups with family, friends and reliving our childhoods via a long list of island bites that can only be found in hawaii.

when we hit the very first friday of the new year, we happened to stroll by a newly opened pizza joint overflowing with a cheery crowd. intrigued, my fella and i returned a few days later on the premise of finding a good slice in the islands and happily discovered it at j.j. dolan's.

we opted to split our pie in two (shown above) - the giacomo on one side (this pizza classic topped with sausage, pepperoni, salami & olives was our favorite) and spinach & garlic on the opposite side. the crust is a revelation and i find myself dreaming of its savory crispness all the way across the pacific.

pizzas come in one size only (more than enough for two) with nine different offerings currently on the menu or you can opt to build your own pie for a custom taste. you can also order up a handful of brews on tap from the bar.

  • where: 1147 bethel street (across from marks garage)
  • hours: mon to fri, 11a to 1a & sat, 5p to 1a

Out of all of the food-images, you just had to put my favorite food of all time! Thanks. Sadly on a diet, but I can smell it all the way to Florida!

JJ Dolans looks great! I was wondering why I had not seen it before and since it is on Bethel, I now understand why. I will check it out. Aloha,Keahi
