Honolulu trip report - Dapuma Live

As it happens...or close to it

Tamashiro fish market is great

Had the onion ahi poke, spicy tuna, ahu lime, and Korean mussels - along with steamed sweet potato

All that for $20 - amazing

  1. Tamashiro's is nice but Kyung's is far better. Both are fresh but K's is higher quality...

      Kyung's is TERRIBLE

      You should be banned for 1 month for recommending it

      The poke was fishy, garlic shrimp rubbery - fish didn't seem that fresh

      First place that was actually bad on the trip so far

      1. re: Dapuma

        Wow! I'm there weekly and never have had anything that wasn't very fresh. I only order the Sashimi place for that..

    2. Aloha and have a blast eating and drinking in O'ahu. .

          Yes limu ahi

          I quite enjoyed the texture of that one

          Ramen Nakamura prior to more Japanese tonight

            Got the Ox tail ramen Shio broth, with the goyza, they also offer fried rice with the combo Mrs D liked the rice, I was so so about it

            The oxtail came with a gingery dipping sauce that was great along with the super clean Shio broth...cleaner tasting than the simplest chicken noodle soup - I almost punched up the flavor before just enjoying it for what it was...and with the dipping sauce it was a nice contrast

            I don't know if it is destination ramen but certainly good for a quick bite to eat if you are staying in the area, cash only

                Holy crap Leonard's donuts are good - thx for telling me I needed that on the list - totally worth the trip for anyone

                Lilihana bakery was cool counter service old school diner, their coco puff was tasty, got the loco moco, tasted like Salisbury steak - heavy dish - but fun to try, not sure I would order it again though

                Mrs d got the spam and eggs - spam was cooked well and she enjoyed it

        2. Great, keep us updated. Researching myself for a June trip

          1. Hwoak was fun - Mai tai was pretty good as was the mojito - the coconut shrimp was ok but nothing special, good to munch during the show

            Good call on the being tired from travel early night day1

            No late night adventures first day

            RH so far has been excellent to stay at
