At Honolulu's answer to New York's Momofuku Noodle Bar, a hip local crowd sips cocktails and slurps familiar noodle dishes with a modern twist. Try the Belly Bowl with smoked bacon, sausage, and pork belly in a savory broth loaded with noodles. At dinner, the pupu menu features trendy small plates such as pork belly buns, oxtail dumplings, and steak tartare spiced with Japanese chili powder. The service here is unpretentious and attentive, and you can also order your food
to go. Lucky Belly accepts dinner reservations for 5 to 6:30 pm only, so be prepared for a wait if you dine after that. Arrive by 11:30 if you want a table for lunch; this place quickly fills up with the downtown crowd.
