Richo in Kaimuki serves up innovative spins on traditional Korean dishes six nights a week. The restaurant opened in August and has already been reeling in customers with its ultra-chic ambiance and extensive menu.

Mother and son Karen Robertshaw and Kelly Flynn, who eat dinner together once a week, recently dined at the reasonably priced venue to try something new. Richo wowed them with its Jellyfish Sashimi ($6), Seafood Pancakes ($14), Chicken and Beef Skewers ($13), Vegetable Skewers ($6.95), and its most popular dish, the Volcano Special ($18), a tasty (and spicy, but not too spicy) mix of bean sprouts, seafood, pork and beef intestine.

Flynn and Robertshaw told Dining Out they plan to return to Richo to try more dishes. And while these two are always on the hunt for new flavors, Richo also has tasty options that cater to the less adventurous palate.

Kelly Flynn: “The Seafood Pancakes have the batter on the bottom, a very thin layer, and they’re very crispy. And then they put the seafood in it and have egg on top. The pancakes are very unique; I don’t think anybody else makes them like this. This is a lot better.”

Robertshaw: “The Vegetable Skewers are a really great price. The corn was excellent. These together are just the perfect meal.”
