The chefs at Tanioka's Seafoods and Catering may specialize in fresh, locally caught ahi and aku tuna, but their dishes also reflect the diverse cultural influences that have shaped Hawaii's cuisine. Sushi platters, chicken katsu, and bacon-wrapped meatloaf are presented alongside island classics such as pork lau lau and more than 40 different kinds of poke. The international dishes are served up at Tanioka's market and catered to hungry crowds at weddings, company-wide food fights, and other special events.

When Mel and Lynn Tanioka founded Tanioka's Seafoods and Catering in 1978, they inadvertently created a family legacy. The couple's daughter and son, Jasmine and Justin, joined the team in the following decades as the business continued to expand, providing more and more customers with hearty portions of traditional Hawaiian home cooking. Today, Tanioka's has become a local institution and garnered multiple awards, but its commitment to fine foods hasn't changed.

In a mini mall off Farrington Highway, shoppers passing Futaba Restaurant’s modest façade might never guess the culinary gem they’ll discover inside. Co-owner and executive chef Tadao Nezu––who once cooked for the Imperial family of Japan, according to the Honolulu Advertiser––has spent more than three decades at Futaba Restaurant treating Hawaiian taste buds like royalty with Japanese cooking wizardry and golden scepters that double as chopsticks. Noodle dishes dominate the menu, which includes six varieties of udon and soba noodles mixed with shrimp tempura and egg, and saimin noodles made from scratch and tossed in in homemade broth. Diners can also sample more indulgent dishes, such as the manalta mori, a mix of fresh ahi, jumbo-shrimp tempura, beef teriyaki, and grilled saba.

Ton Ton Ramen’s soup broth—completed with a bouquet of top-secret herbs and spices—bubbles to fruition after hours of simmering local produce and traditional Japanese ingredients such as pork bones, lending it its signature robustness. The cooks then add tasty morsels of oxtail, chicken katsu, tofu, noodles, and soft-boiled eggs to create piquant and hearty meals. Beyond ramen, they also create their own gyoza dumplings in house and crown curried rice with beef, squid, and tiaras crafted from kimchi.
