Hamuras is a local and visitor’s favorite on the saimin circuit. From the front door, open kitchen to the community style seating, this place does not lack your typical hole-in-the-wall attributes, they’re star quality with a dense dosage of authenticity. It starts off from Aunty selecting the bowl to go with what you ordered, then you tell her if you want side-orders of BBQ beef, chicken or shrimp. Nothing is written down which is crazy ’cause I was wondering how she forgot my shrimp order, but she remembered to charge me for it. Haha. As far as taste-bud fulfillment: Super Ono! Side of hot mustard & shoyu for my large special. The fam added some Diamond Head soda. Game over. if you’re ever on Kaua’i and have a chance to find this Lihue staple, you will definitely not be disappointed. “Hamura’s was awarded [2006] the James Beard Award for the most authentic ethnic food in the United States.” (via Trip Advisor)
