It was a huge year for ramen in Hawaii. Many ramen spots opened up throughout the year, giving us tons of options. My favorite bowl is the shio jidori ramen from Agu. This light and simple broth is actually rich with flavor, and unlike many other shio ramens, has a nice clean finish. The gyoza is also very good, and I recommend getting an order or two.
