Hawaii Mom Blog: Mai Musubi




August 5, 2022

Mai Musubi

It takes a little bit of planning to try the bentos and musubis from Mai Musubi, since all orders must be placed online ahead of time (no walk-ins). 

Their online ordering system is easy to navigate, and once your order is placed, all you need to do is wait until you receive a text message, notifying you that your order is ready (my order was ready 15 minutes ahead of schedule!).

They have parking in the back of the building (turn onto Holokahana Lane from Liliha Street) - you are allowed to park in any open stall.

Your order will be given to you from the small window at the storefront. 


Bentos are packaged in brown boxes - be careful not to tip it over.

This is Musubi Set C which comes with choice of rice (white or mixed-grain), white fish cats, tofu fish nougat, tamago maki, tsukemono, vegetable kinpira, and 2 musubis. You get to chose one musubi filling for your two musubis - I chose Konbu.

Their musubis are larger than other musubi places, and they put a lot of filling in it!

I've seen these tofu nuggets a lot lately - they're one of my favorite things to eat at the moment.

You can buy the musubis separately (they come in pairs) or as part of a set. Also on the menu are bentos, donburi, curry, and Shogun Bentos which are available on Saturdays and Sundays only (I have my eye on these!). 

Yes, Mai Musubi is open on Sundays, which is quite rare for bento places on Oahu! Just another reason why you should plan a visit to Mai Musubi (but don't forget to pre-order!).
