Utage Restaurant & Lounge
This Japanese and Okinawan restaurant pleases its customer base with a wide array of traditional island-fare favorites. The Kalihi eatery has been around for nearly 14 years, and it’s where you too can satisfy your taste for grandma-quality, home-cooked Okinawan comfort food like pig’s feet soup and goya chanpuru (bitter melon with tofu & eggs). All meals come with a soup or salad, beverage, and dessert, which makes for easy ordering, especially for the Okinawan families who frequent the restaurant. Friendly and casual, this is a sit-down eatery that brings the cuisine of Okinawa to the laid-back vibe of Hawaii.
