Here is the latest find in hole in the wall cuisine. Storto’s Deli and Sandwich shop in Haleiwa, Hawaii is the Bomb! As I was driving home from the beach one day with my friends Ane and Ui, we all decided that after swimming for two hours we each had worked up quite an appetite.
We decided to head over to historic Haleiwa, on the North Shore of O'ahu, because it has a quite a selection of restaurants to choose from. On the drive over, we were trying to decide what to eat when I remembered that my friend Jan had raved about a sandwich shop in Haleiwa. So I had Ane call her up and ask her what it was called and where it was located.
If you are coming from North Shore side, Storto’s is in the building right across the street from the Grass Skirt Grill, but if you blink you’re gonna miss it—and trust me, you don’t want to miss it. In fact, it’s so well hidden that when you walk into the building with the sign on the front you have to make a hard right at the entrance otherwise you will end up straight in a clothing store.

The sandwiches are pretty big, a half costs about 6 bucks, but it is probably as large as a Subway foot-long. The bread is homemade and fresh—sorry wheat lovers, it is a type of Hawaiian-white bread, but it’s very good! The lady said that the “Sunset” was the most popular—Ham, Turkey, Roast beef—so that’s what I ordered. As a side note, if you like avocado, I recommend you get it for a dollar more because it is sliced perfectly. It was delicious!!! My kind of sandwich…big and yummy! So hurry up to the 808 area code and visit Haleiwa for lunch, you gotta have a Storto’s sandwich. Just a caution to those who generally use credit or debit cards, they only accept cash.
What do other people think?
But you don't have to take my word for it! Plenty of people agree that Storto's is a Must-See!
