For Mother’s Day the family decided we should beat the crowds and eat out on Saturday instead of Sunday. We went to a restaurant at Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center called Chibo, which is an “Okonomiyaki” restaurant. I had actually never heard of this type of food before and really wasn’t sure how I’d like eating Japanese food in a crepe, so I went with the yakisoba. They cooked it right in front of us and this amused the kidlets for about 5 minutes before they were throwing napkins, stealing chopsticks to break them apart and toss them, and asking to go outside.
I don’t eat yakisoba very often but have made it a few times at home myself. I got the “Chibo” combination special dinner. Though the food was good, I’m not really sure it was worth the money. I guess it’s the experience you pay for. I have additional pictures of the food that I will post tomorrow!
For today I have leftover yakisoba from the kid’s meal. Buddy and Baby Girl split a yakisoba dish with chicken and pork, so that is what I am eating today.
I added some green onions to the top to give it a bit more color and added in a flower-shaped onigiri with nori paste in the middle and small umeboshi stuck into the middle. This tasted pretty good reheated!
