Lobster Fried Rice ($26.50)

Bo Tanaka โ€” vice president of local, family-oriented restaurant Tanaka of Tokyo โ€” gives full credit to Mama Tanaka for the creation of its latest and greatest menu item: Lobster Fried Rice ($26.50).

โ€œWe want to thank Mrs. Tanaka for inventing the Lobster Fried Rice concept, which has been wildly popular so far,โ€ she says. โ€œIt combines two portions of high-quality, cold-water lobster with our world famous garlic fried rice. How could you go wrong with that combination?โ€

For a limited time only, this decadent dish offers a half-pound of succulent lobster on top of a generous portion of Teppan Garlic Fried Rice.

โ€œWe just revamped our takeout menu with an assortment of our favorites at a more affordable price,โ€ says Tanaka.

โ€œWe understand that our local community is hurting due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and we at Tanaka of Tokyo want to provide the same quality steak and seafood we are known for โ€” plus a few new, exciting items โ€” at a significantly reduced price.โ€

Another noteworthy addition is the Poke and Tofu Salad ($16). Expect a half-pound of housemade ahi poke and diced tofu with tomato on a bed of fresh romaine lettuce, paired with its signature dressing.

The Blackened Ahi Salad ($18), meanwhile, features a half-pound of seared ahi over lettuce with a house-made mustard sauce along with the aforementioned house dressing.

โ€œOur Poke and Tofu Salad and Blackened Ahi Salad are two healthy and refreshing options,โ€ adds Tanaka.

โ€œPerfect with an ice-cold beer post-surf session. The half-pound portions of ahi are a great value for the price, too.โ€

Pickup is available at Tanaka of Tokyo’s Ala Moana Center location from 4 to 7:30 p.m. daily. Curbside pickup is also an option, with specially reserved parking spots found outside of Haus Supper Club in the Ho’okipa Terrace lot.

โ€œWe want to thank everyone for their support during these challenging times,โ€ says Tanaka.

โ€œWe are so grateful for our local community and cannot wait to serve you and your ohana.โ€
