I’m obsessed with ramen.
I could literally eat a bowl of hot noodles every week. And if I find a great ramen shop (that’s convenient and has parking) like Kiwami Ramen on Keeaumoku Street, I have going back and ordering the same exact thing.
Ask my friends.
So when I heard yet another ramen shop had opened up, this time in Moiliili, I had to find a way to stop going to Kiwami for once and try the new place.
So I did.
This week my girlfriend and I dine at Agu Ramen, one of the newest ramen shops to open on Oahu in the last few months. It specializes in tonkotsu ramen — the broth is made using simmered pork bones — like the style I had in Fukuoka. The noodles are thinner, too, and the broth is rich and thick — just like it was in Kyushu. It took me back.
So here’s what we ate:
Agu Ramen, 925 Isenberg St. in Moiliili. Hours: 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Phone: (808) 492-1637.
