When Hamura Saimin first opened in 1952, their saimin recipe captivated locals. Similar to ramen, but made with curly egg noodles and sweet roasted pork, the ingredients haven’t changed for decades. Regulars have been bringing their families for generations, ordering warm brothy bowls followed by a slice of their famous lilikoi chiffon pie. The humble landmark is owned by Lori Tanigawa, granddaughter of the original founders. Tanigawa proudly maintains the nostalgia and character the saimin stand has always been known for.
Fun fact: They sell on average 50 pies every day and 1,500 bowls of saimin each month.
