Sandwich fans, take heed: there's a new spot in town to get your fix. Located at 885 Queen St. in Ala Moana-Kakaako, the newcomer is called Hamada General Store.
The Hamada General Store was originally a grocery store from 1958-2007, and has reopened under new ownership as a take out/catering restaurant. It serves poke bowls, salads, sandwiches, burgers and entrees like the fried ahi katsu (kabayaki, sriracha mayo, katsuobushi, furikake and tsukemono) and the braised beef "loco-moco," which comes with two eggs over easy and potato mac salad.
(See the full menu here.)
With a five-star rating out of nine reviews on Yelp so far, the new addition has already made a good impression.
Yelper Mari N. wrote, “There's something for everyone. I decided on the Wafu hamburger steak. It was very well-seasoned and topped with fried onions, among other things. Everyone in our party enjoyed what they ordered.”
And Mister K. added, "The food has a contemporary flare and puts a spin on traditional local food. The braised beef Loco Moco is so tender and delicious with tons of flavor. The negitoro is a must with the sauce that adds an accent but doesn't overpower the fish."
Head on over to check it out: Hamada General Store is open from 7 a.m.–2 p.m. on Monday-Saturday. (It's closed on Sunday.)
