Okinawan chef and owner Hisashi Uehara presents Japanese comfort food in the form of 20-plus varieties of ramen. His team makes all the noodles from scratch and boils 1,560 pounds of pork daily for 24 hours to create the chain's signature tonkotsu broth. AGU has seven outlets across Oahu, including 2146 Kalakaua Ave, Waikiki. Slurp your way through specialties like Parmesan cheese kotteri (an extra thick, oily broth) or a chicken-stock mix with citrusy yuzu peppers. Additional toppings include housemade chili, pickled mustard greens, and pork belly roasted Cantonese char siu style. Vegans and vegetarians: ask about your options, as they're not well-labeled!
