Izakaya Torae Torae

Honolulu
Japanese Restaurant
$$$$

With colorful local art hung on its walls and contemporary takes on Japanese small plates on its extensive menu, Torae Torae updates the idea of a typical, no-frills izakaya. Fortunately, one thing has remained classic: the cheap prices. Nosh on plates that range from raw to grilled to fried, such as the ahi poke, crispy skin jidori chicken, and snow crab & corn cream croquette. There are rice bowls and soups, too, plus sushi at a bar overlooking the open kitchen, where you can watch Chef Yoshimoto and his team at work.
