Utage Restaurant, Honolulu
Although our pattern is to frequent our favorite handful of Japanese restaurants, the other day we decided to try somewhere new. Utage is located in the Kapalama area, in the same shopping center as Young’s Fish Market.
We wanted to try the most variety since it was our first time, so our first choice was the Mixed Plate. Our choices in the photo above were the Mini Hamburger Steak and Chicken Katsu.
These were pretty standard, no complaints…and I liked that there were onions with the hamburger steak!
Our second choice was the Utage Special.
We chose Sashimi, Vegetable Tempura, and Tonkatsu for this plate.
I have to say it was a bit pricey here, especially the Utage Special. But if you look at the close up below you can see that it included ten pieces of sashimi!
Utage hasn’t quite made it onto my list of favorites yet, but the food was good and I wouldn’t mind coming back to try other things on the menu.
And for those who like Okinawan food there is a pretty good selection of dishes here. If you can’t make it to Off the Wall in Pearl Kai, this looks like a fine place to try in town to satisfy your Okinawan food cravings.
