Hawaii Mom Blog: Shirokiya Japan Village Walk




July 6, 2016

Shirokiya Japan Village Walk

I've seen photos on social media of long lines and huge crowds at Shirokiya Japan Village Walk at Ala Moana Center, and I had no plans on going there for a while, but a last-minute change of plans resulted in our family heading there for lunch on Sunday.

Fortunately, we were there early enough that there were many empty tables, and the lines were not too long (with the exception of lines for Marion Crepes and Vintage Cave Bakery - those lines did not seem to end!).

After finding a table, we then went to look at all the different vendors to figure out what to eat.

The options were so overwhelming!  We ended up with a nice variety:

Kid's Cheeseburger and Fries from Honolulu Burger Co.

HBC Loaded Fries from Honolulu Burger Co.
SPAM Bento from Musubi Cafe Iyasume

SPAM Musubi from Musubi Cafe Iyasume

Garlic Salt Butter Takoyaki from Takoyaki Yama-Chan
Spicy Pork Kimchi Yakisoba from Takoyaki Yama-Chan
Strawberry Chocolate Sundae Crepe from Marion Crepe
Banana Chocolate Sundae Crepe
Strawberry & Sweet Milk Kakigori from Hikotaro
I had a hard time deciding on what to eat, but I ended up ordering the Takoyaki.  It was so good!  Even my middle son kept wanting to eat more and more.  The Yakisoba was very delicious as well.

The HBC Loaded Fries were another fave - with cheese, bacon, green onions, jalapenos, tomatoes, and sour cream - it was so addicting!

As mentioned, the line for Marion Crepes was very long.  It moved slowly, and at some points they stop taking orders until the crepe makers have some time to catch up with all of the orders.  The menu is also a bit confusing (and I was bummed they only had vanilla and green tea ice cream available), but the crepes were yummy.

My husband couldn't resist the $1 beers, and don't forget to bring your own water, or you can buy bottled water for cheap (small bottles were less than a dollar).

The Shirokiya Japan Village Walk is indeed huge, with a seating capacity of 900, and 56 stores. Before long the place was packed, and I can imagine the crowds will only continue.

I can't wait to go back though - there are so many other food items I want to try!
