Ramen Ono-Ya – Wakiki Yokocho Gourmet Alley (Hawaii 2019): Mazesoba, Ramen and Gyudon

Our last restaurant visit during our trip to Hawaii this year was to the newly opened Ramen Ono-Ya located in the Waikiki Yokocho Gourmet Alley under the Waikiki Shopping Plaza. Similar to the Shirokiya Japan Walk in the Ala Moana Center, the Waikiki Yokocho Gourmet Alley has a collection of Japanese eateries clustered together.

We wound up ordering the Shoyu Ramen with Gyudon combo ($15.25) as well as the Ono-Ya Mazesoba ($12.25 ) with a side order of Gyoza ($5.95). Mazesoba is basically ramen without the broth and is something that is being seen more frequently in Vancouver over the last year or so.

The thick and chewy noodles here are addictive. The mazesoba uses their special ground pork sauce along with white onions, sliced pork belly chashu, curry cabbage, kizami nori, beansprouts, and a seasoned egg along with the thick egg noodles. We were looking forward to the gyoza but they forgot to put in our order and, by the time we mentioned it, the gyoza that did arrive to our table lacked any crispness to the skin.

Ramen Ono-Ya also has an outlet at the Shirokiya Japan Village Walk at the Ala Moana Center.
