I pass Hinone Mizonone 5-6 days a week but until the other day…just drove by. Hubby asked me where I wanted to eat a late lunch yesterday and I suggested Hinome Mizonone.
Lunch is served from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dinner starts at 4 p.m. Hinone Mizonome is not very big and looks like a typical Japanese restaurant. There are daily specials for $8.50 but they usually sell out early.
Hubby ordered the chicken katsu curry ($9.50) and I ordered the amakara age ($11). The food was delicious and cooked to order. The rice was the special Japanese rice. Even the miso soup was good, hot with a lots of vegetables.
The amakara chicken was lightly breaded, crispy and not greasy. It was even good cold the next day. The sauce was delicate and great with the shredded cabbage too.
Hubby enjoyed his Chicken Katsu Curry too and said they food was good.
Although it was 3 p.m. , there were other people in the restaurant and others were still being seated.
Service was attentive. We definitely will be back especially for a late lunch/early dinner.
Hinone Mizunone is located at 1345 S. King Street on the makai side before Keeaumoku Street.
