So my boyfriend needed some comfort food, like, STAT.
So we headed to Asahi Grill, a little restaurant on Ward Avenue popular for its oxtail soup. Which was exactly what we had in mind.
The oxtail soup here is the same one from Kapiolani Coffee Shop, which used to be located in Kam Bowl (now a Walgreens) and in Kapalama City Square. Folks who crave this version — arguable the best on the island — now flock to Ward Avenue to feast on this classic island dish.
Here’s what our Saturday food fest looked like:
