Gulick Delicatessen

Today’s lunch was take-out from Gulick Delicatessen. I haven’t been to the original location in Kalihi but this one on S. King Street is close by and convenient. Known as an “okazuya”, this type of eatery has a spread of classic local and Japanese dishes like musubis, fried chicken, shoyu hot dog, mac salad, tempura, cone sushi and teri beef, all on display and priced per piece or single serving.The prices are cheap, the portions are big and I just love the freedom of picking out as much or as little as I want for a customized plate lunch.

Hubby’s plate was so heaping big the lid wouldn’t close and only cost $6.40 total! Spam Furikake Musubi ($1.35), Chow Mein ($1.35), Spicy Garlic Chicken ($2.85) and Veggie Tempura ($0.85).

My plate of Furikake Musubi ($0.95), Omelette with Spam and Kamaboko ($1.95) and Nishime ($2.55) for a total of $5.45.

    Fukuya Delicatessen is the other okazuya place on King Street…and having tried both, I agree that Gulick is cheaper and they are more generous with the portions. I believe Gulick has more choices too.

    Man, seeing both of your plates is making me want to go get okazuya! 🙂

      I know right?! I wasn’t going to mention Fukuya in my post, but now that you mention it… Fukuya is more expensive, and the portions are tiny! Each musubi, each scoop seems 2/3 of what Gulick gives. Plus, I don’t like that they have no menu tags so you don’t know the name of the dish, nor do you know the price.

        Good point! Fukuya DOESN’T put prices on their items…and I’m SURE that’s deliberate. 😉 Altho I have to say I do enjoy a bunch of things at Fukuya. 🙂

    Oh my. Looks amazing, wish we had these kind of places in LA for comfort food! Ack!

      No okazuyas in LA? Hawaii comfort food also tends to be unhealthy, so it can be a dangerous thing…
