Hawaii Mom Blog: Nana Ai Katsu




May 1, 2022

Nana Ai Katsu

When Nana Ai Katsu first opened in Ohana Marketplace in 2020, they were an instant hit and you had to pre-order your katsu bentos a day in advance or you'd be out of luck. Fast forward to 2022, and the Ohana Marketplace has since closed its doors, but Nana Ai Katsu found a new home in Kaimuki Town. They are currently offering take-out only.

Their signature bento is the 100% Kurobuta Tonkatsu, which consists of 7 layers of 100% kurobuta pork katsu, served over cabbage. Each bento comes ith premium Koshihikari fluffy rice, potato salad, other side dishes, and tonkatsu sauce served on the side. 

I prefer this style of tonkatsu (thinly sliced pork) vs pork loin - it's much easier to eat and is more moist and tasty.  The panko breading has a nice crunch to it, without it being too thick or hard. 

When the husband walked in to pick up our order, he bought the Premium Spam Katsu Musubis on impulse. Turned out to be a good impulse purchase! Our son who loves spam really liked this musubi.

I was impressed by the thickness of the Spam!

I really wanted to try their Uzumaki Shiso Katsu Roll, but by the time I called the restaurant to place my take-out order, they were already sold out of it for the day. Next time I will call right when they open at 11 am, and hopefully there will be a "part 2" to this post with my thoughts on their Uzumaki Shiso Katsu Roll, and the Giga Ebi Katsu Burger!
