This spot is located on the top floor of the Shirokiya department store a the Ala Moana shopping center. the mall has a lot of food spots to offer from a full size food court to high end restaurants but this was our favorite. Shirokiya upstairs is like our Fujiya. you can get your Japanese groceries done and get your bento fix. but this place kills Fujiya by a mile (that's 1.6 kilometers). they've got everything from bento boxes, sushi, tako yaki, yakitori.... the menu goes on. out of all this the fresh rice bowls caught my eye and had to drop in. the nice lady behind the counter made me up a #12: spicy ahi tuna and natto (fermented soybean) on rice. you get to select your rice: white, sushi rice, or brown. went with the staple white rice. then you get to pick out a side: miso soup or salad. went with the salad. the healthy serving of rice was topped up with plenty of ahi, natto, a bit of masago and for added color some broccoli. the salad was fresh and came with a great sesame dressing. all this you see above was $8.00! the food was fresh and very tasty. best deal in Hawaii. i gave it four and a half Shakas.
