Oahu has its fair share of Yakiniku restaurants. Some people prefer not to eat Yakiniku, because they don't like the idea of having to cook your own food (isn't having someone else doing the cooking for you the whole point of eating out?). But for most people, Yakiniku is highly desirable because you are assured that your food will be hot since it goes straight from the grill to your plate.
One of the newcomers to the Yakiniku scene is Heijouen on Kapahulu Avenue. This spot seems to be a bad luck spot because many restaurants have come and gone. My prediction is that Heijouen will suffer the same fate as the other restaurants who have tried their luck on this corner. The food quality was excellent, but it's expensive, everything is ala carte, and they don't have any happy hour specials (at least when I went a few months ago). There are other Yakinikus in town where you can get the same great quality at a better price point.
|Unlike other Yakinikus, the ban chan is sold separately. Assorted Namul.|
