Hawaii Mom Blog: Kogi Aina




March 21, 2019

Kogi Aina

I've had Kogi Aina on my list of places to try for a while, and although it's about a ten minute drive from my house, I never made it down here until this past weekend. 

The restaurant is located on busy Kahuhipa Street, in the heart of Kaneohe town. They have a few parking stalls on the side of the restaurant which fills up quickly, but you can also parking on the street or at nearby Koa Pancake House after 5 pm.

Kogi Aina is mostly known for their hot pot. You can either go the AYCE (all you can eat) route for a set price (90 minute time limit), or ala carte. 

Here's how the hot pot works - choose your broth, choose your meats (if you so choose), then head on over to the large refrigerator cases and select your vegetables, noodles, and miscellaneous ingredients such as arabiki sausage, gyoza, pork meatballs, etc. 

Don't forget to check out the sauce bar and fill your saucers with different dipping sauces.

It wasn't long before our broth was delivered to our table, along with the meats we ordered (chicken and rib eye). 

Once our broth started to get hot, we started adding our ingredients.

The cooking process is quick, which is great when you have hungry kids (or adults!).

We also ordered a side of fried mandoo - these were amazing! They were very plump and juicy.

At the end of our meal, we received a large bowl of shave ice - this was definitely the highlight of the meal for our twins.

We will definitely be returning here, and we will go the AYCE route the next time around!

They participate in the Fivestars rewards program, so be sure to mention it if you are a member!  We saved 10% on our first visit.
