Local eatery Shiro’s Saimin Haven remains true to its name, serving as an oasis of saimin since opening in 1969.
And when you’re looking for a classic dish to warm up to, try Char Siu Saimin with Wonton, Vegetables and Garnish ($9.65). The bowl starts with wonton min, noodles and vegetables. Then, it’s flooded with char siu. “I like it because it really changes the flavor of the dashi (broth),” says general manager Bryce Fujimoto.
The char siu mixes with the dashi — which is prepared with clams — adding savory sweetness to the Chinese-inspired entree.
Fujimoto also shares his appreciation for the staff and community’s support this past year, especially with the rail construction, and offers best wishes for 2018!
A TOAST TO TOFU
Shiro’s Saimin Haven continues to serve its extensive menu items with saimin, “burgas,” a breakfast spread and the addition of new dishes. Utilizing the specials board to test out new creations and find out if older dishes are still loved, Shiro’s is able to give customers exactly what they are looking for.
Try the new menu item, Tofu Burga Saimin with Vegetables and Green Onions (no meat) for $9.95. A house-made tofu burger (contains mayo) is served alongside a bowl of Shiro’s famous saimin and homemade dashi, which is filled to the brim with vegetables.
