Certainly not a fancy to place to impress a date. But if you want really good, freshly made food at a great price for Waikiki area, then this is the place.

I guess I just don't like musubi. After reading all the good reviews we thought we'd give it a try. However it tasted too fishy for our taste. Probably best to grab and go. Limited seating. Sure can't beat the price, though.

We noticed that place during our 7 day stay in Waikiki and since that moment we ate there practically every day. Their spam musubi, kimchi, curry and beef bowls are amazing. Everything is priced reasonably and you can really stay on budget here. This place is getting pretty crowded in mornings when they also serve some bento boxes but it... More

While staying in Waikiki I noticed this place near our hotel. We decided to make a quick stop here to pick up musubi to take on the plane for the flight home. First, opening so early in the morning made it super convinient to grab these for the day ahead. I got the spam musubi with ume and the spam... More

This well-known place makes really terrific musubi and onigiri with a wide range of fillings and combinations to satisfy nearly anyone. The wait in the morning can be pretty long--depending on when you arrive--but as they make everything to order with high-quality ingredients, it is well worth the wait. They were perfect to bring to the beach as part of... More

I went to musubi cafe with my husband to have our favorite Hawaiian snack; spam and egg musubi. When we arrived there was a long line, which is always a good sign. I ordered a spin on the classic spam and egg musubi. I got the spam, egg, bacon, and avocado musubi and it was awesome! I ordered a few... More

My family and I had the pleasure of dining here at its prior location. We were happy to drive by and notice the larger shop on Uluniu (the address indicates it's on Kuhio but the entrance is on Uluniu), I strongly recommend Iyasume both for its taste as well as a cultural experience. For tourist and locals alike, musubi (rice... More

This was the first time we tried Musubi and we loved it. It only cost $1.85 per piece and two of them are good for a quick take away lunch to eat at the beach. They have some seating as well. Highly recommended.
