On any weekday around lunchtime, or weekend for that matter, you may have difficulty getting a table at Ichiriki without a reservation. That’s because the Japanese nabe restaurant is always filled with a bustling lunch crowd of hungry diners eager to participate in cooking a variety of fish, beef, chicken, pork and vegetables in hot pots of homemade broth.

Dinner is just as busy, but the friendly staff always accommodates anyone who wants to share in the delicious fun. Patrons also may choose from a menu of sukiyaki, shabu shabu options as well as mouth-watering desserts.

Friends Sisi Morgan, Shayna Park-Limoz and Tiana Limoz have been regulars at the restaurant since its original location opened in 2006 on Piikoi Street. Dining Out caught up with them Tuesday as they enjoyed another satisfying lunch.

Sisi Morgan: “We’re the ultimate regulars. We get the Pirikara (Spicy Chanko Nabe, $11.95). It’s got a little more zing to it. The broth is unbelievable. We sometimes get the Green Tea Shave Ice, we love the dessert, too.”

Shayna Park-Limoz:“We come here twice a week and Pirikara is the best soup base.”

Tiana Limoz: “I got the Pirikara too, I like it a lot.”
