We were in Oahu on a super quick trip for David and Sarah’s wedding! (Yes, we flew from Boston to Honolulu and were only in Honolulu for four days!!) Here’s where our foodie adventures took us in Oahu! Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck, Ted’s Bakery, Matsumoto Shave Ice, Kuru Kuru Sushi, Duke’s Waikiki and Candi’s Cafe.
We went to Kuru Kuru Sushi after visiting Pearl Harbor, since it was just a short drive away. Kuru Kuru Sushi was recommended by Carolyn, and it was a really fantastic place for sushi belt sushi! It was also in a strip mall, which was rather unexpected, but the food was good. We had a to wait for about 30 minutes during lunch rush, since this place was so popular. The service staff was friendly too! If you like sushi and are up for some delightful twists on your traditional maki rolls, you should definitely head here!!!
Eel Roll – $6.95: Yummy! It’s not your typical traditional maki roll, but I like it! The sprouts were a good touch. Very fresh!
Ahi Tuna Roll – $6.95: California rolls topped with ahi tuna and spicy mayo. Yummy! Loved it so much, we got two plates!
Cucumber with Burnt Yellow Tail – $3.50: Yummy! You get that crunch inside, with some creaminess of the mayo on the tuna. This was really good too!
Ahi – $3.25: The husband thought this was salmon. Welp, whatever, he ate it anyway! It was good. Thick slab of fish, and very very fresh!
Ahi Poke Wanton – $3.25: Favorite thing on the menu! It’s delicious! The crunchy wanton skin is such a good contrast to the squishy ahi. It’s not poke (it’s a Hawaiian fish salad) like you know poke to be, but it is a sweeter take to poke. I think I had three of these… *oops*
Spicy Tuna – $3.25: More than generous amount of tuna on each piece of nigiri. Well worth it! Yummy!
