The Rice Place

Asian Restaurant

If you're going to name your restaurant "The Rice Place," you better do the grain justice -- and oh, does this casual cafe in Kapiolani treat it well. From rice noodles to rice flour crepes to fried rice bowls, the menu here is brimming with comforting, starchy dishes. Perhaps the most interesting is the Noodles and Rolls, in which soft, flat, blanket-like rice noodles can be wrapped around a crispy Imperial Roll and placed into a lettuce leaf. Another go-to is the Winner Winner Chicken Dinner, in which poached chicken is paired with curry rice and pickled daikon & carrots.
