I’ve been following ono2guys on Instagram for a while, but had never tried their food before. I found myself in Kaneohe late this afternoon, and thought this would be my chance. I have been particularly intrigued by their daily dosirak (packed meal with rice and banchan; like a bento) postings.
A little after 3:00 in the afternoon, they still had a few of the plates left. Today’s mix included veggie japchae, shoyu egg, fishcake, daikon, and rice. For $6 (tax included), it was a filling and super affordable late lunch. It was also perfect for my pescatarian diet.
There is also a bakery component to ono2guys. I got there a little late in the afternoon, so many of their baked goods were wiped out. I did manage to get my hands on a couple of items.
The garlic cream cheese bread had a sweet glaze but also that little bit of savoriness from the garlic. The bread was lighter and the serving of cream was not as heavy as other similar breads I’ve had before.
The Korean cheesecake was extremely light and spongey, similar to Japanese cheesecake. I ate my 2 pieces quickly!
What I think I’ll have to go back for is this banchan case. Banchan are the small side dishes that are served with Korean meals. In fact, they’re my favorite part of Korean meals. I would love to come back on a weekend and buy some different kimchi and gobo to try at home or add to my meals.
So yes, I will be back! It’s a litte tricky to find, as it’s in a fairly small strip mall, which I’ve passed a billion times, but never stopped at before today. Now that I know where it is, I’ll definitely stop by again.
Tell me if you’ve tried ono2guys and what you got!
