You Are What You Eat

Yep, this is what I've been eating so far. Somehow, as much as I like to experience different foods, cultures, and tastes, I've really been craving my favorite foods recently.

Here we have Tenkaippin and their famous Kotteri Ramen. I'm not a fan of onions, so I get it without negi and extra menma (bamboo shoots).

Then, we have Fatboy's Mushroom Swiss Burger for only $4.95! Such a deal. Best burger I've had on the island. I love the combo of the sweet bread bun, the secret sauce they use and a heaping serving of sauteed mushrooms with the most gooey swiss cheese ever. Burger cooked to perfection.

Bottom left corner, we have Sushi King. Love their array of sushi and pretty arrangements. Faves are Unagi, Ikura, UmeShiso, house miso soup (BEST on the island), and of course, I love their Agedashi Tofu. I think they serve it the best here.

Zaratez in the bottom middle has been my favorite for some time now. I'm not a big mexican food fan, but Paul's tacos have seriously got me craving them on a weekly basis. Sorry to say, but Zaratez officially closed, today, Thurs, and will be moving onto better things in the food industry. Paul, the owner, said he is looking into catering or opening a pop up restaurant somewhere in the Kaka'ako area. We wish you the best Paul, and look forward to eating those carnitas tacos again in the future! For now, I'll have to dream about them...

Lastly, we have one of my other weekly favorites, Shirokiya. Newly renovated earlier in the year, this place has become a great Pau Hana/Happy Hour spot for everyone. With the Beer Garden having the most cheap beer on the island (it seems) and a huge variety of Japanese specialty food, this place has got it goin' on! It has definitely become a local favorite, as well as a favorite for tourists. Every 2-3 weeks or so, they host a different ramen stand from Japan. They have everything from Tonkotsu to Hakata to Red Miso, Black Miso and White Miso ramen! It is worth it! Get down there!
