Win two tickets to HFWF's signature event in the final week of our Cheap Eats contest

For the final week of our Cheap Eats Instagram Contest, we're announcing a special prize: two tickets to the Hawaii Food and Wine Festival closing night event, Cuisines of the Stars, on September 9. I'm particularly looking forward to sampling bites from Mourad Lahlou, chef of modern Moroccan restaurant Aziza, Perfecto Rocher of the Lazy Ox Canteen in Los Angeles (when I talked to him last, he was hoping to cook wood-fired paella at the event), and Hiroyuki Sakai, with his French-style cuisine (speaking of which, how's the Waikiki cafe coming along?)

So you have until this Friday, August 31 to submit your cheap eats on Instagram! We'll announce the winner on Tuesday, September 4.

Above are some of this week's favorite entries (from left):

- Corned beef hash benedict ($12.95) at Sweet E's Cafe, photo by teeyah84
- Agedashi tempura udon special ($13.90) at Jimbo, photo by rebeccapang

Because we've upped the prize this week, previous winners are eligible, so keep eating and Instagramming for a chance to parlay that cheap eat into a celebrity chef soiree.
