Guy Fieri's next stop, Hawaii, for Triple D

Guy Fieri is headed to Hawaii to shoot locations for Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. The scheduled dates are October 14 - 20, 2009.

One of the confirmed locations is

The Poke Stop - website
1840 Meheula Pkwy
Mililani Town, HI 96789
(808) 626-3400‎
Twitter: PokeStop

on the island of Oahu, a 20-mile drive north and west of Honolulu. The Poke Stop is owned by chef Elmer Guzman, serving both eat-in and take-out seafood dishes.

This episode is scheduled to premiere on the Food Network on 5/3/10.

Of Chef Elmer, the Honolulu Advertiser writes,
He is an alumnus of the culinary arts program at Kapi'olani Community College, and graduated with high honors from the culinary apprenticeship program at the Greenbrier Hotel in West Virginia. Time spent under chef Alan Wong at Mauna Lani Bay Resort and Bungalows, as sous chef at Emeril's Restaurant in New Orleans and executive chef at Sam Choy's Diamond Head Restaurant, has honed his skills, which he couples with an understanding of Island tastes.

Chef Elmer is also the author of "The Shoreline Chef," which contains 100 recipes including Aholehole Etouffee, Akule Poke and Nohu Bouillabaisse, and foreword by Chef Emeril Lagasse.

More Hawaiian locations as I hear of them.

Hey Krystal, That was him! He was driving a Chrysler Sebring convertible rental. He had a tank top and his wife and two kids were in the car as well. I saw him turn on Kapiolani from Ward Avenue. I'm going to the live taping later on this afternoon at a secret location : )

Saw him @ the Journey concert on Sunday. He walked out from backstage and almost got mobbed by people trying to get autographs and/or pictures. He was really gracious though.

Krystal, They are filming at Hanks Haute Dogs today 10/21!!! They will also be at Rainbow Drive Inn as well. They leave Hawaii on Friday. We got filmed at Highway Inn and will be on the show. He sat at our table and did a full on camera interview. he will take pictures with anyone . . . provided you wait for him to come your way. Production will not let you near him while filming, but after that . . . He'll pose for sure!
