Hawaii Mom Blog: ZIGU




July 3, 2019


For the past year, my good friend Brandon has been telling me about ZIGU, an izakaya style restaurant in Waikiki. I finally got to try it, and I will admit, it IS good!

There are a lot of seating options at Zigu - at the bar, in the restaurant, or outside on the patio. 

We arrived just in time to enjoy a few drinks off of the Happy Hour menu.

Here's what we ate!

Apple Wood Smoked Local Egg Potato Salad

Fresh Hawaiian Tuna Poke Roll

Local Basil Wasabi Kauai Shrimp

Seared Kona Amberjack Sashimi

"Hula Sweet Rice Flour Brand" Mochiko Fried Chicken

Braised Pork Belly

Cole Kale Udon with Fried Kale Chips

Local Banana Spring Roll with Matcha custard dipping sauce

Lappert's matcha ice cream

I loved every single dish, even the ones that I would not normally order, like the potato salad and pork belly! Even the kale was a stretch for me, but the noodles were amazing - very al dente and not at all bitter.  

When we arrived at 5:30, the restaurant was pretty empty, but by the time we walked out a couple of hours later, there was a full house, therefore reservations are highly recommended. 

They recently started lunch service - I'm definitely going to check it out one of these days!
