Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Update!

Since I had such a blast at last month’s Hawaii Ocean Expo, I decided to try and kill myself again by doing it all over at yet another expo. 😛 If you’re free, come on down to the Big Boys & MMA Hawaii Expo on June 15, 16 and 17 at the Blaisdell and say hi! I’ll have even more VH07V (New Products) by then!

This week’s “Spotted” shot for VH07V was submitted by my buddy Thomas Yamada, who runs nvrMT Promotions out of Seattle. He was able to get a shot with local recording artist J Boog before the concert he helped put on.

Spicy Ahi & BBQ – Ono Japanese Eats in Pearl City

May 1, 2012

In part III of my Hawaii Ramen Quest, I paid IchiBen (in the Times Square Shopping Center) a visit. While walking over from my car, I noticed a fairly large crowd gathered around the entrance of another eatery nearby. That place was called Spicy Ahi & BBQ and I took a mental note to return again to give it a try. Here's what I found on that return visit.

Based on the name alone, I was pretty excited. I love me some good BBQ, and, if you've been following my Poke Paradise series at all, you'll know that I am a fanatic when it comes to raw seafood concoctions.

In addition to BBQ, Noodle and Nabemono items, Spicy Ahi & BBQ has a special "Spicy Ahi Bowl or Spicy Ahi over Fresh Vegetable" section on their menu with 14 different combinations incorporating Spicy Ahi.

I went with a two choice combination meal with, what else? Spicy Ahi and BBQ (Kalbi). Oh yeah!

Each combination dinner comes with a salad, miso soup, rice & pickles (tsukemono).

The salad comes "dry", giving you the opportunity to use the dressing of your choice from the selection on each table.

Wifey also went with a little combo action, choosing Misoyaki Salmon…

Although prices are on the higher side for a casual, sit down dining type of experience, both food quality and quantity are definitely present. Outside of Waikele Center’s Restaurant Kunio, I would go as far to say that Spicy Ahi & BBQ is probably one of the area's best tasting Japanese restaurants. Definitely worth the wait.
