Han No Daidokoro is a yakiniku restaurant in Hawaii that opened in Hawaii during the pandemic. Han No Daidokoro specializes in beef, mainly Washu and Miyazaki beef (two of the best types of Japanese beef).
When I went to Han No Daidokoro, we ordered a combination of a set and some ala carte items to supplement the set (there will 11 small courses). The set has some of the most popular cuts that you can sample, but you can order ala carte if you only want certain cuts of beef. Some of my favorite items at Han No Daidokoro were the sukiyaki, shabu shabu grilled beef, and the beef sushi. I personally prefer thinner cuts of beef, but it all comes down to personal preference.
Another good thing about Han No Daidokoro are their side dishes, which include items like salad and bibimbap. They are a lot lighter and a good change of pace when you are eating so much beef.
Overall, I would say that Han No Daidokoro is slightly worse than Jojoen; however, for Hawaii standards Han No Daidokoro is the best yakiniku place available. Jojoen is only in Japan still, so until Japan reopens I hope to be able to go back to Han No Daidokoro!

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!
