Don’t expect to get a discount on the famous Osaka-style okonomiyaki during happy hour at Chibo Restaurant (@chibohawaii) in Waikiki.
Its signature pancake dish — usually consisting of flour, egg, cabbage and mountain yams and topped with a special plum sauce — starts at $21.50 for dinner, which can be a bit pricey when you’re just out with friends searching for cheap drinks and pupus.
But don’t let the price of okonomiyaki scare you away from Chibo.
If you don’t mind skipping the restaurant’s namesake, you’ll find a bevy of other options — all under $10 — that will satisfy your pau-hana craving.
Here’s a look:

Catherine: Time for review on Ninja Sushi out near HNL airport next to Starbucks. For fast sushi …fantastic, and at the right price. Martin
I’ve only been there once… Are all the Ninja Sushis run by the same company or are they franchises?
Hello Cat, I ate Okonomiyaki in Hiroshima and it was soooo guud. Better than any other place I tried. I been wanting to go to Chibo’s for awhile now.
I hear the okonomiyaki in Hiroshima is supposed to be the best. Never tried, but it’s on my bucket list. 🙂
I’ve decided I need your food budget…
Sadly, I don’t have one. :/
