the sashimi salad looks delicious!

clare eats

That all looks delicious


I have neverseen a bulgolgi sandwich or kim chee in a sandwich ... gotta try it sometime. D'you reckon it will go well with melted cheese? Love the look of that ahi don...very fresh!


Hiya Reid,
While I like the fresh cleaness of the don, nothing compares to their bulgogi topped with KC...great photo by the way...:drool:



You are making me hungry. Bulgogi sandwhiches with kimchi *sigh* The ahi don, is that just served as the photo shows or is their a sauce hidden or served on the side. Whatever the case may be with the Ahi don, it looks refreshing.


Kimchi and cheese go good together too, I have eaten kimchi stirfy with melted cheese, cheesburgers with kimchi, pizza topped kimchi (you have to watch for this one because it can be soggy) hot dogs, burritos, tacos, spaghetti, steak, prime rib, turkey, chicken, the list goes on and on, but cheese and kimchi I think for the most part go pretty well together, but it is only my opinion. I like it with most things as you can see. ;P


man... i'm in L.A... i wish i found your site before i went to hawaii... i was stuck in waikiki and the food there sucked!! we have one place in Gardena... Bruddah's, the hawaiians say its pretty close to homemade.. ever been?

Kat & Satoshi

We weren't too happy with the service we got when we went for dinner...

Hi Reid,
I always wanted to try Onjin's but never got the opportunity. I remember going to Hanatei Bistro often...I totally loved the place.. What do you recommend off the menu? My sister goes there a bit and she said that one time they had a problem with seating?


Reid - That Bulgogi Sandwich looks great, I think i'll be eating it in my dreams....


Hi Cindy,

The ahi don was quite tasty and filling too. It was definitely as good as it looked!

Hi Clare,

Oooh, it so is! =)

Hi Rachel,

Bulgogi with melted cheese...yes! Kimchee with melted cheese...probably not! Kimchee is also quite good with tuna fish sandwiches too! =)

Hi Lajja,

Yes, the ahi don was very fresh and quite tasty too. It's definitely something that I would have again.

The bulgogi and kimchee sandwich was interesting and equally tasty. I'm craving it now.

Hi Milgwimper,

The ahi don was served with some kochu jang sauce on the side. It went perfectly with the fish and lettuce.

Hi dietchilicheesefries,

Welcome to the site.

Well, if it's any consolation, you found my site before your next trip! =) And no, I haven't been to Bruddahs.

Hi Kat & Satoshi,

The service here is probably the only bad thing about OnJin's. They need to improve, otherwise, I won't be visiting too often.

Hi wweater,

If you visit OnJin's you really can't go wrong with any of the food. If you go during lunch, you should definitely try the bulgogi and kimchee sandwich, it's one of my favorites.

The service isn't really too good though, and that's why I don't visit as often as I would care to.

Hi Kirk,

The sandwich was good. Maybe you can make it at home sometime!

    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.
