Hamura Saimin

On our last Monday in Kauai, Sigrid's parents watched the kids while we got away for a bit. We had lunch at Hamura Saimin, which is Kauai's oldest (50+ years) and best known saimin shop. Saimin is a Hawaiian noodle creation, sort of a cross between ramen, Chinese hand-pulled noodles, and Filipino noodles.

Hamura Saimin was honored as an American classic by the James Beard Foundation. Businessmen are rumored to fly from Honolulu just to have lunch here. We figured we should give it a try.

The menu is pretty simple.

We got a regular...

...and a special.

Pretty good, but maybe I just prefer ramen.
