After arriving in Honolulu and checking in at the Pagoda Hotel during the noon hour, it was time for lunch! A local recommended the Asahi Grill across the street.
We ordered one of the daily specials, Adobo Chicken and Pork which came with 2 scoop rice and mac salad and the other order was the house special of the Oxtail Soup which came with a side of rice. The adobo was a healthy portion of meat, enough to take home half the order but since we were traveling, could not. So we ate it all - very tasty, just enough vinegar & shoyu and would order it again. The mac salad was okay, would have liked to see some potato in it. The oxtail soup was very good too. Ono! Served piping hot with lots of meat with a flavorful broth.
They have a large staff of workers so service & food was fast. The place very clean.
Places like this are a dime a dozen in Honolulu and each place has its speciality. It's fun to try them.
