Traveling alone on business, didn't want a big fuss for dinner after my flight from Chicago. I had heard about a Japanese noodle bar nearby, and found about 50 people in line.
Headed back to the food court behind my Beachcomber hotel, and saw the biggest crowd near Yummy Korean. I've always been partial to Korean food, finding it less oily than Chinese.
Ordered a take-out with several different items, along with a choice of six different side dishes. Korean cuisine is big on the sides, so choose with care! And at least one will be kimchi, the spicy cabbage.
The BBQ'd meats were marinated, and all came out delicious. And the price (about $10) made the meal a real deal.
Experienced travellers know that Asian food courts, unlike their US shopping center counterparts, are the home of quality and economical meals. This is apparently true in Hawaii as well.
