Three years ago okazu lovers in central and east Honolulu got a nice surprise: the beloved Gulick Delicatessen in Kalihi opened a second location on South King Street, where the old King’s Bakery used to be.
And when it opened, it was an immediate hit, with folks lining up to get the nishime, shrimp tempura and corned beef hash patties they knew and loved.
Founded by the Takara family more than 30 years ago, this location is run by sons Cory Makishi and Lee Takara, who, along with Lee’s wife Denise, operate Kochi Restaurant & Lounge next door.
It’s a must-stop for anyone craving okazu-ya — which is me almost every Saturday.
Here’s what I ate on a recent trip to Gulick Deli:
