Gee! That’s a lot of takuan slices they serve there! :D The jaeyook dup bap looks so tempting. Must be so nice with soy milk and noodle soup….

Mrs T

The fried combo does look like Japanese Style Tempura .. :) I love pickled radish..!! which make me think more japanese again.. :) As usual..i am no fan of pork.. so cannot envy you .. heheh!! i would love the beef katsu though.. :) And yer know wat.. ??!!!??? I used to attend a church back in singapore.. by the name of Elim Church .. when i was a kid.. hehhe!! ;)


The fried combo had me drooling! That's because I've a weakness for deep-fried, battered food, and that plate of goodies looks so crispy and delicious. Pity your friend ordered such an un-inspiring, un-Korean dish. I thought the spicy pork looked yummy, until you said it was too fatty.


Your site always makes me SOOOOOOO hungry. I want to go to Hawaii just so I can EAT.


Oh that looks so good! I'm dying to eat korean food, hmm maybe I cna get my husband toi take me out. I love pork, but my husband does not like it if its too fatty...*drool*.

fish fish

Geee... seem like this shop more like a Korean & Japanese foods place. Did u ask the owner why name it Bakery & Juice?



The beef katsu looks like the meat jun they serve at Kim Chee II. I'm still kind of biased when it comes to Korean food and think KC II is probably the best in Honolulu. I've had excellent Korean food served here in LA and then could go on and on...but I'm drooling too much. Keep up the good work!


Hi obachan,

Nice to hear from you! Yes, there were quite a lot of takuan slices. These were good because they weren't too sweet. The jaeyook dup bap was nice, although the pork was too fatty for me. =(

Hi MrsT,

The tempura was great as was the takuan. This wasn't Korean, it was more Japanese if you ask me. =) I'm not too big a fan of pork, but for some reason, I felt like eating it last night. Too bad it was so fatty.

Hi Julia,

The jaeyook dup bap was actually very appetizing when it first arrived at the table. I had no idea that it was fat until I had already eaten about 3 or 4 pieces of meat. My friend pointed out that each piece was half fat. =( If I wasn't told, I could have probably eaten the entire plate. On the other hand, the fried stuff was great...light and crisp!

Hi mariko,

Long time no hear! Thanks for the compliment. You should come to Hawaii. There's a lot of food just waiting to be eaten. =)

Hi milgwimger,

The food here is actually quite good. Like you said, too bad the pork was so fatty.

Hi fish fish,

This is actually a Korean restaurant so I don't know why the name is "bakery and juice". The next time I'm there, I'll ask the owner. They also have another shop located around the corner, it's called Elim II.

Hi Clinton,

To tell you the truth, the beef katsu was actually very different from meat jun. This dish had like a panko crust on the outside and seems to be deep-fried whereas meat jun is dipped in egg before being pan-fried.


Your pictures make me drool. By the way if you like Mandoo Soup, Elim's is very good.


Hi Julie,

Thank you for dropping by my blog. I've had the mandoo soup at Elim a while ago and have to agree that it was quite good. I also like their steamed mandoo a lot. =)

Thanks for the tips. Hope to hear from you again!


you should try the udon bokum it is duk buki with udon noodles mixed in IMO its the best dish they serve

    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.

    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.
