Off Track: Here’s Your Top 5 Saimin Spots on O‘ahu Updated

September 19, 2021

From the Frolic Hawaii website

Last week we asked you to name your favorite saimin spots on O‘ahu, and now the results are in. Two places emerged as destination favorites, but judging from the geographic spread of Your Top 5 spots, we can safely say this: The entire island loves saimin!

Only five votes separated the top 2, which are in Kalihi and Wahiawā. These two saimin specialists accounted for 51% of the nearly 1,000 votes cast, and like the other faves, have their roots deep in Hawai‘i’s saimin past. Let’s duly note that O‘ahu loves all kinds of noodle bowls, since many write-in votes were actually for ramen and even lo mein and won ton mein. And a final note before we get to the results: This post is even more meaningful because since we published our own ranking in March 2019, two of those five spots have closed.

So here it is, O‘ahu: Your Top 5 spots for steaming hot, old-school bowls around the island.
