The Rainbow Drive-In is a can't miss for comfort foods
The next stop of eateries is Rainbow Drive-In. I've been to Rainbow Drive-In many times. Many items are on the menu, but my favorite is the boneless chicken with gravy. On my way home from work, I stopped to get the boneless chicken gravy again. I knew the eatery had been around for many years, but I didn't know much about the company's history. According to their website, the late founder Seiju Ifuku learned his cooking skills in the Army serving during WWII. He and his wife, Ayako Ifuku, started Kalakaua Drive-In and later took a chance and opened Rainbow Drive-In in 1961. The Kapahulu Rainbow Drive-In is in the same place as it began in 1961.

The Ramen at Hokkaido Ramen Santouka was a five-star rating
I wanted to eat at a restaurant I'd never tried and find a place in Honolulu. As with many searches online, I Googled Ramen Saimin in Honolulu. One of the first restaurants on the list was Hokkaido Ramen Santouka. I didn't know what part it was on Kaheka street, so I walked in both directions. After careful review, the pictures looked close to the Don Quijote store on Kaheka. Sure enough, the restaurant is in between many of the eateries surrounding the Don Quijote store. No one was in the restaurant when I went there at about 2:15 pm on a Saturday. I had probably just missed the lunch crowd. It was good for me because I didn't want to wait to get seated. My intent was to try their Ramen and write an article about my experience there.
