Located in Ala Moana Center on the Mauka side, Ewa Wing near Longs and Victoria's Secret is an authentic Japanese-style ramen shop. Known as being fresh, gourmet yet affordable Tanaka Ramen & Izakaya came to Hawaii when they launched their first location in Kapolei, then at Ala Moana Center and soon to come Pearlridge Center.
Overall the noodle is perfectly prepared and light yet features the most sought after texture. The broths are delightfully delicious, while some of the standouts are more pronounced in flavor and ingredients. We tried the:
Tanaka Garlic Cheese - which was the standout crowd favorite with it's bold garlic essence, savory umami from the parmesan cheese and fulfilling broth.
Yuzu Tori Ramen - was light yet uplifting, the citrus gives the ramen a bright feeling and compliments the savory flavors.
Chili Cilantro Tori Ramen- has a great combination of herbal flavors with a little kick of spice to create a fusion of highlights on your tongue.
Also available: Shishito Peppers, Cold Tofu Salad, izakaya style happy hour featuring chicken wings, truffle fries and more.
Here is a look at the menu items you'll find only at the Ala Moana location along with their brand new Happy Hour food and drink options.
