This hole-in-the-wall place is SO worth it!

Yay to the weekend again! Happy Fall, too!

My gf and I found a wonderfully delicious and reasonable Japanese restaurant in the beginning part of Waikiki. It’s called Do-Ne Japanese Food. It’s not easy to find, as it’s a very small joint. Best to make reservations, as there’s only 17 seats in the restaurant. Totally reminds me of Japan, especially the food. Oh.my.word! Mouth is watering just thinking about it.

This kimchi was BOMB! Oh my goodness! One of the best kimchi dishes I’ve eaten in a lonnnnng time.

The set for $16.99. Amazing deal! I ordered the special: stamina seafood don set. Yummy! The don included: ahi, ika, natto, ikura, okra, and egg, over sushi rice. The set comes with salad, miso soup, tsukemono (pickled veggies), and appetizers: choi sum, shrimp with somen, and salmon.

Hamachi collar. Thee best!

We also ordered grilled octupus (tako) and agedashi tofu (deep-fried tofu). Everything was excellent! We are definitely returning again to try more of their food.

Dad’s Bday at Hy’s!

Happy Sunday! My family and I celebrated my dad’s bday a couple months ago to this day at Hy’s Steak House in Waikiki. We love steak and I haven’t been to Hy’s in years! We really enjoyed the food. The ambience was sophisticated and quiet. It was a very intimate dinner with great company and delicious food.

I ordered the steak au poivre, which is a New York striploin with black peppercorns and au poivre sauce. Au poivre basically means “pepper steak.” My favorite seasoning- pepper! I had to try this dish.

I absolutely loved it. The peppercorns with the sauce was amazing! The steak was cooked at medium-rate- my preference- and it was tender. I loved my sides, too- mashed potatoes and green beans. Got to have green beans- my ultimate favorite.

I haven’t been to a steak house that didn’t disappoint.

Have a great week!

This was a deal! …And so much food!

Went strolling in Waikiki the other weekend and ended up eating at Hokkaido Ramen Santouka at the new International Marketplace, in the back of Mitsuwa Marketplace, a nationwide Japanese market. I’ve been to their other location at the Don Quijote on Kaheka Street. Their food is sooo good! They had these sets that were less than $15. It was A LOT of food! I struggled to finish everything. We tried the shoyu ramen with salmon and ikura (fish eggs) with rice and natto (fermented soy beans) and rice- my fave! So, so good! I.LOVED.IT! Both sets came with a boiled egg. Mmm!

While cruising the International Marketplace, you got to check out the Mitsuwa Marketplace. It’s an awesome Japanese market. It reminded me of the stores in Japan. You can find everything in there- food, drinks, products, etc. Amazing store! It’s the perfect convenience store. I wish they had more locations on the island.
