Mana Bu’s K ARLEANNE M AT THEWS Chief Copy Editor

Mana Bu’s bills itself as “Hawai‘i’s musubi headquarters,” and with dozens of options handmade fresh every Monday through Saturday morning, it’s easy to see why. Each musubi is packed with flavor, with high-quality rice (white, brown, 10 -grain or mo-

chi) balanced by generous portions of the featured filling. The musubi are made without MSG or preservatives, and a list of the ingredients and their origins are displayed beside each variety of musubi in the shop. If you want something besides musubi, Mana Bu’s also offers veggie okazu ($1.40) and a variety of healthy desserts ($1.80 -2.70, made with organic

sugar). These low prices mean that it’s possible to pick up a couple musubi and dessert – a filling, healthy lunch – for under $5. Just be sure to arrive early for the best selection; popular varieties sell out quickly (often by midmorning), and the store closes as soon as it runs out. Here are a few suggestions to get you started that go beyond the ubiquitous Spam:

Patisserie La Palme D’Or


The sweet acai cup ($3.98) is a twist on the classic, with cubes of cake accompanying the typical fruit and granola. PAIGE TAKEYA Associate Chief Copy Editor

Kim Chee II Restaurant ALL DAY SPECIAL!

Any two (2) items served with rice and vegetables: BBQ Beef • BBQ Chicken • Pork Meat Jun • Chicken Katsu Ton Katsu • Fried Man Doo (3 pieces) 3569 Waialae Ave • Honolulu, HI 96816 (808) 737-7733

Voted one of the BEST Korean restaurants in Hawaii for the last 35 years!

Cake seems to hold a special place in any dessert connoisseur’s heart, and no cake lover who lives in Hawai‘i can truly claim to have eaten cake until he or she has been to Patisserie La Palme D’Or. This bakery, conveniently located in Ala Moana (a few stores down from Shirokiya), specializes in highquality and beautiful cakes that call to mind both Japanese and French sensibilities. Over the last fi ve years, I have diligently tried almost every variety of cake it offers, and I can assure you that it was a labor of love (and deliciousness). A few more savory brunch items are also available.

GAT E AU AU F R A I S E $4 .95 The ubiquitous fancy cake, Patisserie La Palme D’Or’s strawberry shortcake should be every fi rsttimer’s fi rst purchase. Three layers of shortcake are accompanied by multiple layers of strawberries and whipped cream, resulting in a sizable but not overly fi lling slice of cake. The cake itself is soft, mild and sweet. This bakery prides itself on achieving a harmony of fl avors instead of an overpowering experience.

B E R RY C U P $3.85 The berry cup is my favorite. Served in, naturally, a cup, the berry cup is a combination of cheese-

cake and shortcake cubes mixed with whipped cream, raspberry jelly, crunchy white-chocolate/ strawberry flakes and little rice puffs. It works because of the contrast of the ingredients: the softness of the cake against the crunch of the flakes, the tartness of the fruit against the creaminess of the whipped cream. Every bite fuses texture and flavor, and it’s a more interesting alternative to a regular piece of cake.

PA N N A C O T TA $3.70

This is my sister’s favorite: a milky pudding topped with a layer of raspberry jelly and various fresh berries. The pudding is smooth and light, offering a creamy contrast to the tart fruits and jelly. It’s an excellent alternative for people who aren’t especially fond of cake but still keen to try what Patisserie La Palme D’Or has to offer.

The ontama udon ($4.25) is just one of many choices available at Marukame Udon, which specializes in serving Sanuki-style noodles. M ARIA K ANAI Features Editor

You know a restaurant is good when the line of customers goes out the door and down the entire block. Marukame Udon opened last summer and became popular for its Japanese noodles served at an affordable price. The restaurant’s self-service/ cafeteria style allows customers to easily pick and choose broth, toppings and side dishes.

U D O N $3.75

The regular-sized ontama udon ($4.25) is served with half-boiled egg, green onions and tempura fl akes. The soy-sauce broth is fl avorful and slightly sweet, and can be served hot or cold. The egg is slightly runny, and the green onions and fl akes add zing and texture. However, the handmade noodles are the star of the dish. With a soft center but slightly fi rm, slippery outside, the noodles are thick and perfectly cooked. And for ultimate authenticity, slurp the noodles as you go – that’s the right way to do it. Simpler udon dishes include kake udon ($3.75), which is simply noodles, lightly-fl avored broth and green



onion or the kamaage udon ($3.75), which serves noodles separately from the dipping broth.

S I D E D I S H E S $1.25+ Although the noodle dishes are cheap, it’s easy to go overboard when you move down the cafeteria line to the side dishes. An assortment of tempura – Japanese fried food – range from $1.25 to $1.75 and can easily rack up on the bill. However, it’s hard to resist the juicy fried chicken ($1.50), shrimp ($1.75) and the sweet potato ($1.25). If you’re still hungry, you can also grab more carbs with musubi ($1.50 - $1.75).

S TEVE L ITSCHAUER Staff Writer Nico’s Pier 38 is one of the best seafood restaurants on O‘ahu. The premise is cheap, gourmet-quality seafood. Each morning the freshest fish available comes into the fish auction next door to Nico’s, where the day’s catch is auctioned off to exporters, local restaurants and chefs. Nico’s daily menu specials change as often as the day’s catch, ranging from swordfish or mahi-mahi to marlin burgers and more. Nico’s recently moved across the pier to a much larger space and is now able to seat 160 in their open-air dining room. The addition of a full bar and fish market also add to the appeal of this healthy eating choice. There are no frills, and all dishes are served plate-lunch style in a Styrofoam container.

P L AT E S $8 .95 - $9. 50 The local favorites on the menu, including chicken katsu and beef stew, are served with two scoops of rice (white or brown) and a choice of macaroni salad or ‘Nalo greens. If

Thai Lao CANDACE C HANG Special Issues Editor

Combining Thai and Laotian fl avors, Thai Lao is one of Kapolei’s newest restaurants. The prices hover between $8 and $12 with dishes such as summer rolls, sweet and sour pork and the traditional pad thai noodle plate. Here are a few samples from the menu to whet your appetite:

PA D P R I K K I N G $9.95

When Can You Start? a Job Website exclusive to Hawaii

The version that I ordered came with pork, but you can opt for chicken or beef at no additional cost. The stir-fried long beans are crunchy with a soft inside and a nutty fl avor. Like many Asian foods, each piece and ingredient of the meal comes in bite-sized portions. The pork is slightly chewy compared to the vegetables. Both are drenched in an oily sauce with some heat to it. The overall taste is a little salty, a little spicy and surprisingly creamy. For under $10, there is enough to serve roughly three people. I would recommend, though, that you eat it with rice.

PA D K I M AO (D RU N K A R D ʼS N O O D L E ) $9.95 This menu item comes with chicken, beef or pork for $10, or shrimp or seafood for $11.95. It is chiefl y comprised of noodles that are thick, fat and chewy similar to chow fun. But be careful, as they pack a punch in spice. The heat is enough to make you sweat, and is not for those with a weak tolerance. The meat and noodles are stir-fried in a mixture of broccoli, basil, chilies and garlic. The result is a hot combination of crunchy broccoli bites, soft noodles and chewy bits of pork. Like the pad prik king, it’s all about the contrasting textures and the different layers of fl avor, from spice to herbal basil bitterness.

Just a quick bus ride from campus, Auntie Pasto’s is serving up tasty and generously portioned Italian-American comfort food in a cozy and casual setting. The menu includes standards like spaghetti and meatballs, but also offers specialty dishes like house-made gnocchi ($15.75). With over two dozen entrees priced at or below $15, there are plenty of affordable options – and nearly every dish is enough for a hearty dinner, sharing with a friend or lunch the next day. If you don’t mind dining early, stop by before 6 p.m., when you and a friend can choose a shared appetizer, two entrees and a shared dessert for $30 (before tax and tip). Or, if you’re out later, drop in between 8 and 10 p.m. for late-night happy hour, when draft beers are $3 and cheese pizzas start at just $5 (you can add other toppings for a small charge). Auntie Pasto’s also has a small wine bar in the back of the restaurant. If you’re a beer drinker but want an authentic drink with your meal, ask about one of the Italian beers offered. If you don’t know where to start on Auntie Pasto’s extensive menu, ask one of the friendly servers for a recommendation or try one of these favorites:

This appetizer consists of three mozzarella-stuffed calamari, tomatoes, peppers and plenty of onions, all drizzled in lemon and served on a still-sizzling skillet. It has a little bit of a kick, but is mild enough that it won’t overwhelm the rest of your meal.

Pho Mai SOYOUN JOO Contributing Writer Pho Mai encompasses three factors of an excellent eatery: ambiance, service and food. This restaurant is a popular destination for any Vietnamese-food junkie. Pho Mai’s trite exterior may fool certain pedestrians; but the interior is far from ordinary, featuring tranquil music and bright furnishings. Pho Mai’s delicacies are known to be quite inexpensive – bowls of piping hot pho are approximately $7.50, and each bowl comes with a complementary plate of basil and bean sprouts. Moreover, the restaurant provides various dipping sauces so that diners can customize their pho.

The Green Door Cafe K ELSEY A MOS News Editor The Green Door Cafe would be easy to miss if its door wasn’t in fact bright green. The humble restaurant, located across the street from Indigo, is run by a friendly woman who prepares Malaysian dishes one by one. It’s hot, dark and red inside, and there are only four tables. Customers drift in and out, mostly ordering take out. If you’re lucky, you can eat lunch next to the window in the steamy sunshine, or bring a date to dinner and impress him or her with your cosmopolitan tastes. Remember to bring cash, as the restaurant doesn’t take credit cards.

SHOR American Seafood Grill K ARLEANNE M AT THEWS Chief Copy Editor

Located at the Hyatt Regency Waikīkī Beach, SHOR American Seafood Grill offers upscale casual dining overlooking the beach and a menu featuring sustainably sourced seafood, Big Island beef and fresh local produce. Glancing over the menu, it might seem that SHOR is above a student budget. But knowing the menu in advance and ordering strategically can allow even insolvent students to have a swanky yet fi lling meal for under $35 per person. For main dishes, the pork chop, chicken breast and several fi sh options come in between $28 and $34 per serving, and each entree includes a side dish. But even if you have your eye on the fi let mignon, lobster or lamb ($40-$60), you can keep the cost down by sharing an entree and fi lling up on reasonably priced side dishes, such as the hearty “Idaho Loaded Baker” ($6). Here’s a sample menu for two that comes out to a total of $56 – just $28 per person before tax and tip.

C O L O R A D O R AC K O F L A M B $4 0

At 12 ounces, the lamb portion is plenty to share. The meat is melt-in-your mouth tender and served in a hot skillet with a few fl orets of broccolini. For each meat on the menu, you can pick one of 15 seasonings – ranging from simple peppercorns or sea salt to pineapple salsa or tangy soy radish sauce – at no extra cost. Our server recommended the Hamakua Ali‘i mushroom, a creamy sauce with a rich lobster base that was mild enough for the fl avor of the lamb to come through. Since each entree includes a side dish, order one of the slightly more expensive sides (such as the $9 grilled asparagus, which provides a welcome contrast to the rich lamb) with your meat and buy other sides separately.

T RU F F L E M AC ʼN ʼ C H E E S E $7 The mac ’n’ cheese at SHOR is made with eight different cheeses (including Velveeta) that create a thick, creamy texture and complex but mild f lavor that isn’t overwhelmingly rich. The noodles are soft, but this is contrasted by the layer of crunchy breadcrumbs that top the dish. And as the portion is about what you might get for lunch at a cafe, it’s a good value for an elegant version of this homestyle dish.

The apple cobbler at SHOR is a simple take on a comfort-food favorite. Soft, sweet apples are covered in a crunchy streusel and topped off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The best part is that the dessert is served in a shallow dish so that you can get all three contrasting fl avors, textures and temperatures in each spoonful.

Spicy ‘Ahi & BBQ PAIGE TAKEYA Associate Chief Copy Editor Hidden behind Spicy ‘Ahi & BBQ’s nondescript exterior and casual decor is the best spicy ‘ahi on the island. Discreetly nestled in the middle of Pearl City, this low-key restaurant delivers exceptional Japanese food, from sashimi to teriyaki steak. While prices may seem a bit high for casual dining – if you choose some of the more expensive dishes, your bill may come out over $20 – the quality and quantity of what Spicy ‘Ahi & BBQ offers is worth it.

Spicy ‘Ahi & BBQ Location: 98-1254 Ka’ahumanu St, Ste. A-13 Hours: Tue-Thu 11 a.m.-2 p.m., 5 p.m.-9:00 p.m.; Fri-Sat 11 a.m.2.p.m., 5 p.m.-9:30 p.m. Contact: 808-488-4851

C OM B I N AT I O N D I N N E R $14 .95 Many diners opt for the combination meals. Served with miso soup, salad, rice and various tsukemono, you select two options out of a large list of choices, including tempura, mochiko chicken, sashimi and kalbi. My recommendation is the vegetable tempura and sashimi combo. Spicy ‘Ahi & BBQ’s tempura batter is always crispy, never oily. Its vegetable tempura includes slices of sweet potatoes, carrots, string beans, round onion rings, eggplant and zucchini. The portions are gargantuan, sometimes even overfl owing the plate. Complementing this is the sashimi, which includes three slices each of ‘ahi and salmon and one piece each of shrimp, squid, octopus and scallop. The latter ingredients do vary, however, depending on the chef’s mood.

GROOVE IN THE GARDEN April 12 5-10pm th


S P I C Y ʻA H I B OW L $13.95 The signature dish of Spicy ‘Ahi & BBQ is, naturally, its spicy ‘ahi. The spicy ‘ahi bowl is a simple and satisfying way to enjoy its fi shy goodness: one giant scoop of fresh spicy ‘ahi perched on a heaping bed of sushi rice and garnished with ginger, daikon and Japanese-style eggs (plus miso soup on the side). Spicy ‘Ahi & BBQ serves the dish differently than the chunky offerings found in most restaurants: its ‘ahi is fi nely minced and blended with tobiko (fi sh eggs) and a spicy mayonnaise base into an almost paste-like consistency. Never too fi shy or too spicy, it’s a delicious happy medium. I like to mix things up and get the spicy ‘ahi and salmon bowl ($14.95), which adds a little pile of salmon sashimi to your spicy ‘ahi fi x. Other combinations (like unagi or natto) are also available.

PAIGE TAKEYA Associate Chief Copy Editor Kalihi seems like the last place in Hawai‘i where you’d expect to fi nd a truly authentic and old-school Japanese restaurant and sushi bar. But located right across the street from Honolulu Community College is the small and unassuming Yohei Sushi, where the entire staff speaks Japanese and the clientele is chiefl y comprised of elderly Japanese nationals. While the average college student may not be able to afford the tantalizing potential of an omakase at Yohei’s sushi bar, the teishoku and other set meals are a delicious and cultured experience.

ʻS U S H I Z E N ʼ $25. 50 The “Sushi Zen” menu is not set, as it is dictated solely by the whims of the chef. It features a small set of fresh sushi alongside a myriad and everchanging selection of Japanese delicacies, ranging anywhere from pickled sweet potatoes to grilled squid to agedashi tofu. Some of the food will be unidentifi able. Eat it anyway: the textures and fl avors have all been chosen to complement one another. I will describe the menu I tasted in March, though this may not be your experience. Aside from the aforementioned dishes, there was a large slice of daikon, cooked until it was soft and juicy, slathered with a thick and salty mushroom puree/sauce. Accompanying this was a bowl of some mysterious fi sh – fried, chilled and tender – served on a bed of pickled cabbage. There was also, among other things, miso soup garnished with cilantro, a bowl of soba, an

extremely potent slice of kazunoko (herring eggs), deep-fried gobo (burdock root), a piece of broiled salmon so rich and moist it made my eyes water, and some sort of breaded fi sh with a weird but pleasant spongy consistency. The sushi included fresh ‘ahi, seared ‘ahi and squid, among other things. Dessert was a little scoop of persimmon sorbet. If sushi is not your style, “Unagi Zen” is available for the same price, where a big bowl of rice with a piece of super-soft eel on top replaces the raw fish selection.

M I S OYA K I B U T T E R F I S H $24

Yohei does not neglect the more conservative eaters among us. The standout among its selection of less exotic Japanese fare is the misoyaki butterfish teishoku. It is the picture of simplicity: a large piece of butterfish served with rice and traditional fare that often includes soba, chawanmushi, miso soup and other tsukemono. But the butterfish is incredibly tender, almost melting in your mouth before you can chew it. The lightly seared outside adds a hint of smokiness to the white richness contained within. It also has the bonus of being relatively bereft of bones.

Quick comfort food: easy enchiladas STEP 1: MAKE YOUR SAUCE

This is my mom’s authentic Mexico City recipe. The sauce is the most important part of any enchilada, so take a few minutes to make your own, rather than buying an off-theshelf version. Ingredients: 3 tablespoons chili powder 3 tablespoons flour 1 1/2 teaspoons cocoa powder

1 teaspoon garlic salt 1 teaspoon oregano 3 cups water 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce


You can fill your enchiladas with a number of things. My favorite is simple seared chicken with plenty of black pepper. Here are other things you may want to try inside: Shredded cheese (try queso fresco for authentic flavor, sharp cheddar for a TexMex taste, or mozzarella for a lower-fat option) Sliced black olives Green chilies Shredded pork or beef

K ARLEANNE M AT THEWS Chief Copy Editor Enchiladas are a hearty, easy-to-make dinner perfect for sharing with a few friends, and you can customize the recipe to get exactly what you want. Here’s what you’ll need for 4-6 people.

Directions: 1. Combine all dry ingredients in a small bowl. 2. While stirring, add enough water to make a thin paste. 3. Pour into a shallow pan and add remaining water. 4. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and has an even color. 5. Turn off heat and stir in tomato sauce.


There are a variety of cooking options to suit your situation. For all, you’ll need white or yellow corn tortillas. Stovetop individuals: Keep your pan of sauce hot on the stovetop. Soften KARLEANNE MATTHEWS / KA LEO O HAWAI‘I a tortilla in the microwave or in a pan of hot oil, dip in sauce, and put on a plate. Add whatever fillings you’d like, then top with another softened and sauced tortilla; the heat from the tortillas and sauce will melt the cheese. Baked family-style: Soften 8-12 tortillas in the microwave. Spoon some sauce into an 8x8 square baking pan. Begin filling tortillas and rolling them, then place in the pan. After you’ve completed one layer, spoon more sauce over the enchiladas and add a layer of shredded cheese. Continue this until the pan is full. Add one more layer of sauce and cheese. When you’re almost ready to eat, bake in a 400 F oven for about 20 minutes, or until enchiladas are hot and the cheese on top is melted and starting to brown. Easy microwave: Place a tortilla on a plate and spoon on some sauce. Add your fillings, spoon on some more sauce, and top with another corn tortilla. Top with more sauce and shredded cheese and microwave for about 1 minute, or until cheese is melted.
