New restaurants in Honolulu

Craving crawfish? Two new places dish it up: Kickin Kajun, a little eatery on Makaloa where you "pick a creature" (clams, crawfish, blue crab, Dungeness crab, lobster and more), a seasoning (Louisiana style, garlic butter or plain) and spice level. Then you get down and messy. Plastic bibs included.

Then there's Crawfish R Us, a food truck, serving Louisiana-style crawfish. Since it's a truck, it may be harder to clean up after eating those messy little buggahs.
Kickin' Kajun, 1518 Makaloa St, 946-2789

Squid ink ravioli with lobster, trenette Bolognese and pasta vongole (clams). La Cucina Ristorante Italiana is the newest Italian restaurant in town. Inside the Imperial Plaza Building (by Ah Lang's, aka Angry Korean Lady).
725 Kapiolani Blvd C112, 593-2626

There's a new location of Waikiki's Menchanko Tei on Keeaumoku. The menu includes menchanko (a thicker egg noodle in a nabe style pot), ramen, katsu and oden.
903 Keeaumoku St., 946-1888,
