Hawaii Mom Blog: Yagura Restaurant

Yagura Restaurant

A good friend of mine recently started a new job at Lanakila Pacific, so we decided to meet for lunch with our other friend at Yagura Restaurant which is on Liliha Street, about 5 minutes away from her office.  Yagura is an old school Japanese restaurant that offers reasonably priced Japanese food in a comfortable setting.

I wanted to choose one of the "healthier" items on the menu, so I avoided the fried stuff (tempura) and opted for the chicken sukiyaki. It came with chicken, tofu, negi, cabbage, bamboo shoots, jelly noodles, udon, and an egg.  The portion was massive and I was able to get two meals out of it by eating half of it for lunch and taking the leftovers home for dinner.

Chicken Sukiyaki $16.95
The sukiyaki came with tossed salad (or mac salad), tsukemono, miso soup, and rice (not pictured).

One of my friends ordered the tenzaru soba.  It looked really refreshing and sized perfectly for lunch.

Tenzaru Soba $10.50

My other friend ordered the saba/shrimp tempura combo.  It looked like a lot of food but she ate it all. :)
Combination Plate - saba shioyaki and shrimp tempura $13.95

Parking can sometimes be a challenge, as they only have 4 stalls in the front and metered street parking is sometimes in high demand.

They have a kid's meal on the menu, which consists of BBQ chicken or chicken katsu with mixed tempura for $10.95. For that price, you might be better off ordering a regular combo plate for $3 more.
