Craft cocktails and modern Asian cuisine reign at this hip noodle bar in Honolulu‘s Chinatown. Dig into a bowl of ramen, garnished with sesame seeds, green onion, ginger, a soft egg, and wakame (dried seaweed). From there, things get lively with additions like oxtail won tons and togarashi shrimp with housemade kimchi. Other standouts include lamb lumpia and pork belly bao (buns). Adventurous eaters should try the uni gnocchi—made with creamy urchin gonads—enhanced by leeks, tomatoes, and butter cream sauce. A popular late-night stop, Lucky Belly serves its full menu until 12 a.m. every night except Sunday. Its takeout window serves specials—announced via @_dawindow on Instagram—until 2 a.m., Thursday to Saturday.

The Luckiest Belly at Lucky Belly

A trendy, hip, and newly renovated restaurant in Chinatown, the reclaimed wood interior at Lucky Belly creates a comfortable atmosphere to enjoy ramen bowls, salads, seafood, and lamb lumpia for lunch or for late takeout. A connoisseur of fish tacos, I gave the tempura shrimp tacos a try without disappointment. Lucky Belly serves fresh Asian fusion flavors with creative specials that reflect the diversity of people in Honolulu.
