FUUD: Megs Drive-In in Kalihi

I grew up in Kalihi and for years have driven past the large red-and-white sign that reads, “Megs Drive-In” (@megsdrivein).

And surprisingly, I never stopped by.

But back in April, Melissa Chang (@melissa808) dropped by the old-fashioned drive-in that’s been serving plate lunches since 1967.

So when friends of mine wanted to check out the breakfast there — namely, the pancakes — it didn’t take much for me to agree to tag along.

Here’s what our recent breakfast — which turned into an impromptu tweetup, then lunch — looked like:

Open in 1967, Meg’s Drive-In is an institution in Kalihi, where I grew up. And it hasn’t changed much since then, either.
