At Tanaka Saimin on North Nimitz Highway, you’ll find diners slurping up a storm, all thanks to the eatery’s mouth-watering saimin. According to owners Joan and Paul Watanabe, noodles are Tanaka’s specialty, from traditional saimin and won ton min to udon and hoso udon. Other local favorites grace the menu as well, including shrimp tempura, teri beef, burgers, sandwiches and more.
Dining Out recently stopped by the busy saimin shop and couldn’t help but notice the smiles on the faces of Suzie, Dina and Gigi Lee, who were finishing up a delicious lunch.
“I ordered the Saimin Combo (small $8.20, large $8.70) and it was delicious! It came with teri beef, shrimp tempura and a nice salad. This is our second time here and we really like the noodles. They’re very fresh.”
“Both Gigi and I ordered the Tanaka Special Saimin ($8.45), which is a large won ton min served with two pieces of shrimp tempura.”
