I-naba – Honolulu, Hawaii

I-naba is a small little gem tucked away on South King Street.  I’ve long been a fan of soba so it was only destiny that led me to this restaurant.  We came here a bit close to their closing time but was able to get seated anyway.  Even though we thought we were a little late, there was still a small stream of customers that came in after us!

Dipping sauce for the tempura.  Yum!

Would I come back to this restaurant?  Definitely!  And I think they have some great lunch specials for you to try.  If you’re a fan of soba like I am, please go to this restaurant.  We need to support local small businesses.
