Welcome to November, Dining Out readers. A hectic holiday season is closing in, full of shopping, eating and … more shopping! Soon, Ala Moana Center will be filled with people scurrying here and there, trying to get everything checked off numerous wish lists.

In the midst of the mall’s holiday hustle and bustle is Aja Sushi & Bento, perched in the corner of Makai Market Food Court. With a winning assortment of mixed plates and bentos, the eatery is readily available to provide shoppers with a convenient and tasty refuel of Asian-local fare.

The front counter of the eatery boasts an endless line of already-prepared bentos, such as Spam and Chicken Combo ($7.99). The bento includes Spam musubi, garlic chicken and edamame, and it can be taken on the go and easily consumed while walking around the mall.

With even more options, such as sushi rolls, salads and refreshing drinks, a stop at Aja Sushi & Bento is perfect for a shopping break, or even before and after a fun, sun-kissed day at the beach, just across the street.


Aja Sushi & Bento at Ala Moana Center’s Makai Market Food Court has something for every tummy in search of delicious and savory options. Opt for Salmon or Shrimp AjaPacs ($12.49), comprised of crispy servings of salmon or shrimp, glazed garlic chicken and mandoo pieces. It all comes with a generous bed of steamy rice to follow each savory bite.
