The Hidden Musubi in Waikiki

I visit Oahu on a regular basis and I usually stay in the Waikiki area.  Except for a handful of places, I'm not really a Waikiki expert.  I was telling one of my Honolulu friends that I stay there, but I don't know where to eat in Waikiki.  I'm usually on Kapahulu Avenue, Kaka'ako, Kalihi, downtown, or other Honolulu neighborhoods for food.

A few of my Japanese friends has been telling me to go here.  Since I'm never in Waikiki, it took me awhile to get over there AND I'm glad that I did...

SPAM Musubi with Egg and BACON

Caught my eye...

Located behind the Hyatt Regency Hotel 
on Koa Avenue
is this small "Musubi Shop" sign

If you don't look close enough, you'll miss it

Once you pass the first sign,
look for the green sign
between the buildings.

It reminds me of places in Japan

Oh yeah, bentos too...

It's a bit too traditional for me,
but I have to remember they get a lot
of Japanese tourists.
