Serving up tasty Japanese dishes with a local flair, Sekiya’s Restaurant & Delicatessen has been the go-to place for diners to enjoy traditional items for more than 60 years.
The eatery offers a robust dining menu that’s available from open to close, featuring crowd-pleasing items that keep up with Sekiya’s tradition, such as Marinated Fried Chicken ($14.95).
This entree, which has been on the menu since the Kaimuki location opened, features boneless chicken that soaks overnight in a sugar, shoyu and ginger marinade before being lightly floured, then fried. Served with a dipping sauce of daikon and shoyu, this dish is completed with rice, miso soup, tsukemono and tea.
You also can fi nd more delicious entrees to satisfy your taste buds, including some soothing noodle bowls, like the Nabeyaki Udon ($15.25), as well as side dishes of Kinpira Gobo ($6.75), a staple in Japanese cuisine, and more.
UP FOR UDON?
At Sekiya’s Restaurant & Delicatessen, one can find a plethora of entrees that are perfect for any occasion and appetite. Those looking to warm up should enjoy a bowl of Nabeyaki Udon ($15.25), which features a variety of flavorful additions — shrimp tempura, an egg, shiitake mushrooms, fish-cake and more — and udon noodles swimming in the eatery’s homemade broth. As a side dish, order up Kinpira Gobo ($6.75), a popular item that often sells out by lunchtime! Not to worry though, as Sekiya’s plans to whip up more batches for guests to enjoy all day long.
