Bob Sigall writes a weekly column in the Honolulu Star Advertiser titled Rearview Mirror. His articles appear every Friday and cover different topics of Hawaii’s past.

Recently, he wrote a article about one of Honolulu’s legendary plate lunch places – Masu’s Massive Plate Lunch. Masu’s began in 1988 on Kamaile St. and moved to the corner of Liliha and Kaukini streets in 1992. Masu’s closed in 2007.

The photograph above shows Masu’s menu for November 1996. Note the food on each plate and the cost – $6.80.

While younger foodies will rave about current restaurants and food trucks – what ever happen to lunch wagons? – but more mature eaters will always have a place in their stomach for Masu’s.
