Born and raised in Japan, Riki Kobayashi loved eating nabe. But when he moved to Hawaii, he found that there weren’t a lot of quality options. So he figured he would create one.
The resulting eatery, Ichiriki Japanese Nabe Restaurant, opened more than a decade ago and now has four locations throughout the island.
Able to accommodate large parties, Ichiriki is a popular spot for birthdays, graduations or even just getting together for happy hour.
Recently, happy hour — which runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and again from 9 p.m. to closing — just got a whole lot happier at Ichiriki. Last week, the eatery began offering Kobe Beef Chanko ($19.50) as a featured happy hour-only special.
Stocked with a mix of veggies, as well as rice and a choice of ramen or udon, the discounted happy hour nabe features succulent pieces of prized Kobe beef — a deal you won’t want to pass up.
COME ON, GET HAPPY
For more happy hour fun at Ichiriki Japanese Nabe Restaurant, popular items such as Chicken Karaage ($4.95 happy hour, $6 regular) and Pork Kimchee ($6.25 happy hour, $10 regular) also are available at a discounted price. And don’t forget to top it off with a slurp-worthy Melona Shochu ($4.95, not available for happy hour).
