My all time favorite there is a bowl of saimin and bbq burger. It's just perfect combo and great for lunch. They make their own noodles and the staff have been there forever. Love the place.

Hidden gem in Wahiawa! My kids love to come here for the noodles (and spam musubi, but the musubi is usually sold out by dinner) and I am partial to the wonton soup. Quick, cheap, solid family choice. The burgers are also very good.

A family owned and operated small restaurant. Great saimin with home made noodles. Delicious food, reasonably price and good service.

Old fashioned saimin with a BBQ beef stick. Not curly noodles like the old days but the soup base will definitely satisfy you. If you're not from the islands but want to try some old fashion local favorites, you will find a good place to eat.

For those born and raised in Wahiawa, Shige's is a staple part of one's diet. Nothing beats freshly made saimin noodles and diner style food. Maybe it is pure nostalgia or maybe it is just simply comfort food.

Another restaurant I've frequented so much I've lost count. The menu is extremely simple and you just look at the board. Best thing is obviously the saimin or wun tun min with a soup that is made from scratch. Everyone has a favorite saimin joint and this one is mine. Oh yeah, if it's too hot for the soup, try...
