No visit to Honolulu is complete without a stop at Musubi's. Their noodles in their delicious broth and tempura vegies and a great inexpensive meal. I go as soon as they open up, otherwise the line is long. They do move quickly though.

Musubis are simply great. Either the more simple triangular ones or the guilty pleasure with the name "Spam musubi".

This is one place I go each and every time I'm on Waikiki. The offerings are simple -- musubi, nigiri and karaage. They are individually wrapped and ready for consumption or saved for later. Just remember to bring cash.

Fantastic little store. I've always loved Japanese rice balls. Although New York has many places that serves such food, none of them came close to this place. I think what made the major difference is the rice. My favorite: salmon and salmon roe.... and everything...More
