      deb,,,are you sure about butterfish at ono. i went there last year....i was impressed by the sheer amount of pork and size of the lau lau, BUT,,,,i also recall it as being very dry, and thus i don't recall anything other than the pork. i may be mistaken as it was a while back and just that once.

        I had the opposite experience.. A lot of times lau lau can be dry, but, at least when I went this past June, I was impressed by how moist theirs was (as well as by the sheer amount of pork and it's size!). And butterfish was present.

    2. Halai's in the fishmarket at Ward center

      1. Marukai (you'll need a membership).

        1. Doesn't Costco Iwilei sell them in bulk?

          Personally, I prefer Helena's on North School Street.

          1. Do the places mentioned have a large piece of butterfish in them? The ones that I have had over the last couple of years that claim to have butterfish in them are only the size of a small Band Aid and almost not worth putting in.
