Looking for beautiful and tasty bento and musubi in Honolulu? I highly recommend that you try Higoto on Waialae Ave. in Kaimuki. I went fairly close to their opening time of 11 a.m. on a Thursday, and they had quite a variety of items avaiable. I chose the butterfish bento, but they also had Shoyu Garlic Salmon, Unagi, Tofu and Veggie, Yakitori Sticks, Yakitori Chicken, Karaage Chicken, Katsu Chicken, Katsu Pork, Hamburger Steak, and a Special Combo Bento available.
My bento came with multigrain rice, shredded carrot, hijiki with corn, and lotus root. It was very filling and tasted great!
Also known for their layered sushi cups, they had Spicy Ahi and Avocado available, as well as the Crab and Ikura cup. They also have a Salmon and Ikura cup, but it was sold out. I went with the Crab and Ikura cup, and I loved the layers of flavor and texture. As a pescatarian and sushi lover, this was the perfect meal. I ate the bento and sushi cup at different times, as each was enough for a meal on its own.
If you just need a quick bite, you can grab a couple musubi. The Kombu and Takuan musubi that I got was made with multigrain rice.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that Higoto was located right next door to Coco Bloom Kitchen in the Kaimuki Shopping Center. It’s on the bottom level by Times. There’s lots of available parking.
My one tip would be to go early, as I’ve heard that items sell out pretty fast here. I’ll definitely be going back to try more of their bento and sushi cups. Let me know if you’ve been here and what you got!
