Oahu is a real gem for Japanese food, thanks to the many Japanese tourists and also locals who are obsessed with Japanese cuisine.
Other Recipes You Might Like
There are countless authentic Japanese restaurants dotting Waikiki Beach: ramen joint, sushi bar, izakaya, and yakiniku (Japanese BBQ).
I was in Japanese food heaven during the vacation; the abundant seafood and fresh produce accentuate the already great taste to tempting perfection.
Yakisoba or Japanese fried noodles/焼きそば is one of the dishes I particularly enjoyed during my stay there. Yakisoba is pretty much the Japanese version of Chinese chow mein, but there is a certain appeal about yakisoba—the ramen noodles andthe sharp-flavored benishoga (picked ginger strips) make yakisoba a bright-tasting noodle dish. I loved it.
