Agu Ramen – Honolulu, HI

Agu Ramen opened up in the old Da Kitchen location on Isenberg a few weeks ago.  Lately, there’s been a trend of opening up ramen shops and I couldn’t be happier!  I love noodles.  So the latest shops include Agu, Hokkaido Ramen Santouku and the revamped Kiwami.  I’ll have posts on all three!  Anyhow, I was excited to try Agu because they specialize in tonkotsu ramen.  Stop the yapping and start the viewing…

I Lied

So I totally said my time would free up a few weeks ago and I was dead wrong.  It’s probably been more hectic than ever, the next two weeks are going to be crazy too.  I apologize.  I’ve been doing some restaurant-ing the past few weeks too so I hope to get them up for you folks.  I’ll try to work on some posts tonight.  Please bear with me!  I am pretty excited to share some recipes I made too!  It’s the holiday season so I’ve been baking up a storm for various events/bake sales…or just to eat.  LOL.  Hope you all are doing well.  I’ll end this post with another Chicago picture.  Sorry!  I couldn’t believe how beautiful this picture was that my cousin was able to capture from her room.  Can you believe her view?  Willis Tower!


O-Bok Restaurant – Honolulu, HI

O-Bok Restaurant is a little mom and pop Korean restaurant located in the heart of Manoa.  I’ve been here a few times and have received mixed service.  My very first visit was terrible and I got bad treatment from the old man who runs the front.  The past few times I have gone, I have received good service from him so I can’t complain.  As I was looking for the yelp link for this post, I couldn’t help but notice all the recent one star reviews for the restaurant.  It makes me feel sad if what the posts are saying is true.  I honestly thought the old man was the owner of the restaurant but judging from some reviews, I guess he just works there.  A fair warning for everyone who goes to this restaurant – he’s not the friendliest guy but I think he’s a good guy.  He brought us our drinks right away, we got the right amount of banchan and the food came quickly.  Let me share some pictures!
