One of the comfort food places here in Hawaii. Their selection of saimin (ramen) is extensive. They also have options for local style plates with rice, mac salad or french fries. There is a wide selection of sides to add to your meal.

I came upon this hole-in-the-wall place quite by accident. My friends were looking for a shave ice experience while I was searching for something more substantial to satisfy my hunger. Although the environment has a slightly rundown strip mall feel, my takeout order of saimin...More
