Hawaii Kai residents may remember Mama Woo’s Bar-B-Q, a reliable Korean takeout spot that opened in 2003.
When the eatery moved to Kaneohe a few years later, loyal customers followed, some making the trek from East Honolulu to the Windward side just for Mama’s authentic Korean food at affordable prices.
But the family who runs the restaurant lost the lease and — to the benefit of Honolulu urbanites — moved to Moiliili next to McCully Bicycle & Sporting Goods.
It re-opened two weeks ago — at the end of August — and we couldn’t wait to try it.
Here’s what we ate:
Dog Kimono from Inu Inu Hawaii
Days left: 3
Dog kimono or yukata from Inu Inu Hawaii (www.inuinuhawaii.com)
Price: $30 online or at pet boutiques such as Calvin & Susie in Kilohana Square
The gist: Bored of the usual dog outfits? Or your pooch is quite the fashion diva? Get a kimono (or yukata) from Honolulu-based Inu Inu Hawaii, which specializes in unique Asian-inspired apparel for dogs. They come in all sizes — in fact, you can custom order ones for larger breeds — and patterns. Imagine your Rottweiler in one of these!
Best for: Dog owners, of course!
