FUUD: Chibo’s Happy Hour

Share Button

Don’t expect to get a discount on the famous Osaka-style okonomiyaki during happy hour at Chibo Restaurant (@chibohawaii) in Waikiki.

Its signature pancake dish — usually consisting of flour, egg, cabbage and mountain yams and topped with a special plum sauce — starts at $21.50 for dinner, which can be a bit pricey when you’re just out with friends searching for cheap drinks and pupus.

But don’t let the price of okonomiyaki scare you away from Chibo.

If you don’t mind skipping the restaurant’s namesake, you’ll find a bevy of other options — all under $10 — that will satisfy your pau-hana craving.

Here’s a look:

Okonomiyaki Chibo Restaurant

Known for its Osaka-style okonomiyaki, Chibo also has a great happy hour menu — both at pau hana and late nights on the weekends — that are worth checking out.

i used to get the okonomiyaki at that place in the AM food court, which is no longer there and which name i can't remember. it was the same word twice. anyway, i always got the number six, burger patty one with extra bonita chips. it lasted two days.

I've only tried the okonomiyake - thanks for the great info on all the other offerings! Now no guessing necessary on what to try :)

This looks like a good happy hour. Too bad they don't have the yakisoba from Spam Jam. I was hoping that was on the menu, but think they just made it for a special occasion.

@DianeSeo i liked that spam jam yakisoba, but this stuff looks way better! actually i'm not a big fan of chibo's okonomiyaki, so am glad to know abt all these other dishes at happy hour. pork roll looks esp delish.

@turkfontaine @Cat hmm, don't recall, must have been during one of my distant sojourns. a play on words: can mean 'carp carp' or 'come come.'
