Only in Hilo: 5 Other Things to Eat at Takenoko

Anne’s post a few weeks ago got me thinking about Takenoko Sushi. Like Anne, if I get invited to Takenoko I move heaven and earth to be there! But, I have a confession. I don’t really love raw fish. I know, I know. I want to love it, it’s as clean as “clean eats” can get. I don’t know what’s wrong with me! So you’d think that I wouldn’t like going to Takenoko Sushi, but I do! I especially love catching up with friends and family over good food and drink.

The following dishes are some good options if you are like me. This is not a complete list of all that Takenoko offers, just what I like to order:

Did you know Takenoko used to make ramen too? Sadly, they no longer do but it was oishii!!! Only in Hilo!
