Junpuu is a ramen restaurant in Hawaii that I really enjoy; although their ramen is good, my favorite dish is actually their char siu quesadilla. I have not really had this dish anywhere else (and unfortunately, I could not find any good picture of it online), but it is a great dish. Basically, it is a Japanese take on a quesadilla; using char siu as the meat, it tastes like a fusion betweeen Japanese food and Mexican food. Overall, it is delicious, and one I would definitely recommend getting (even if it sounds a bit unusual).
Junpuu also has ramen, curry, katsu sandwiches, etc., and it is all reasonably priced. The dishes are anywhere between $10-15. The location is a bit weird, as it is located next to a bunch of doctor’s and medical offices; I think people who work nearby are the main customers of the restaurant.
It is very unfortunate that they can’t get any foot traffic right now because of the coronavirus, but they were open for takeout last week. Also, once the lockdowns and restrictions are lifted, hopefully it will return back to normal for Junpuu.
If you live in Hawaii or are ever visiting Honolulu, I would definitely recommend giving Junpuu a try; you can order the ramen (which is good, but I wouldn’t say it’s worth its own special trip for), but definitely make sure you give the quesadilla a try as well.

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
