Yes, it’s a food court in a department store, but if you love Japanese food, you have to go. Shirokiya emulates Japan’s busy street food scene by devoting its entire top floor to food. It can be overwhelming with the sights and sounds and smells—almost 2 dozen stalls and vendors are packed in here. Here’s where to go: Takoyaki Yama-chan for takoyaki, little doughy pancake balls crisp on the outside and filled with chopped octopus; Menya Ifu Do for tonkotsu (pork bone) ramen; fresh-from-the-Honolulu-fish-auction sashimi by Take’s Fish Market; and affordable chirashi bowls at Maguro Zanmai.
