Take a Trip to Hawaii With Your Stomach

This story is part of our OUT OF ASIA feature. Click HERE to read more from our deep dive into Milwaukee’s Asian dining scene.


Ono Kine Grindz, the small Hawaiian shop and restaurant open since 2010, is a goldmine for island culinary treasures like ahi tuna poke and char siu (BBQ) pork.

Owners Guy Roeseler and David Lau offer other wonderful traditional dishes. One is Spam musubi, a sushi roll of purple sticky rice, a soy-based sauce and the lunch meat product in a seaweed wrapper.

My go-tos here are plate meals – the ramen-like saimin, a soup made of broth flavored with hondashi (a fish-flavored seasoning mix), fresh noodles, char siu chicken, egg and shrimp dumpling; and the laulau plate, featuring pork belly and butterfish wrapped in a steamed taro leaf served with macaroni salad, kimchi, Kalua pig and rice.

DETAILS: $3-$18, 7215 W. North Ave., Wauwatosa, 414-778-0727
