FatMan Seoul

Looks like the dosirak I had for lunch. Hahaha .... Errr .... the spam seems outta place in that platter of things Japanese. :)


Hi FatMan,

the spam is out of place here. =) But people in Hawaii love it. We have the highest consumption of Spam in the US.

BTW...your dosirak looks much better than this, trust me.


I love delicatessens - in singapore we have the "fan cai" shops - they sell rice with different dishes. There is also a high end Jap delicatessen in SF's Ferry Market Building that has good food and presentation. It's a little pricey but a good experience :)


George's Delicatessen. That brings back a lot of memories. Good food and nice people.
If you'd like to venture to School Street, check out Yuki's. It's a real "hole-in-the-wall" delicatessen. Going Ewa way, it's on the mauka side a little pass Masa's/Masu's Delicatessen (the place with it's famous garlic chicken). They have a variety of good eats, like crab stuffed shrimp, stuffed fish, pork chops, stuffed chicken, and a whole lots of other tasty goodies. The best thing is the price. They cater mostly to the Farrington and Damien school kids and the neighborhood people, so the prices are very reasonable.


Hi Stef,

I like okazu-yas too. =) They normally have a wide variety of items to choose from so you can never go wrong. These used to be served on a plate with paper wrapping or in a little box with waxed paper. One day, I'll take a picture of the inside of one of these places.

Hi Lance,

Thanks for dropping by. Yes, the people over at George's are really friendly. The place I miss the most though is Naka's. They actually had the best okazu-ya, in my opinion. I used to like going there to get my lunches when I would go on field trips while growing up.

I've never been to Yuki's, but the next time I'm in the area, I'll be sure to check it out. Sounds like a winner!



Where was Naka's? That really rings a bell.


Hi Lance,

Naka's was on North King Street near Kopke Street in Kalihi. Ray's Cafe is here now.

    Canon EOS 5D

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.

    Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-U40

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
