Hawaii Mom Blog: Little Plum




June 26, 2024

Little Plum

A lot of people have heard about Little Plum, the restaurant that recently opened in Manoa Marketplace. After I posted a few pics from my dining experience, I received many messages asking "well, how was it??"

The menu is small, and it's pricey. I believe the menu is the same for lunch and dinner service, so there are no lunch specials. 

Here's what we tried today: 

ume tomato

daikon & pohole

menchi katsu

dry min

mochi churros

We really liked the plates - the ume tomato and daikon & pohole.  The dry min was not what I was expecting (think Sam Sato's on Maui). The mochi churros were pretty good - not as dense and chewy as say a mochi donut, but still satisfying, and I liked the slight kinako flavor.

Although I wasn't blown away by the food this time around, I would like to return to try different items on the menu (the chicken karaage buns, ahi tataki and tempura), especially the other dessert on the menu - the lilikoi orange pudding. 

I also noticed that the restaurant is loud. And we were there for lunch. It's probably a lot louder during dinner time.  

Reservations are highly recommended.
