Nori’s Saimin saltiness

Nori’s has always been one of my favorite places to have a great bowl if saimin. Unfortunately, it’s like their broth is getting saltier and saltier every visit!

This is one of my favs: small saimin and burger combo. Nori’s burgers are always awesome… freshly made thick juicy patties. Once in awhile the saimin broth is just right and drinkable, but lately, like on this visit, it was so salty I could only eat the noodles.

Nori’s please taste your broth before sending it out. I love everything else about you!

    Nori’s Saimin…. Salty food? or Salty employees? … Salty food I can withstand, i’ll wash it down with a beer or two. Salty customer service I cannot tolerate, even with beer, because it takes them to damn long here to get me a beer!

    You know, I’ve never made it to Nori’s. It wasn’t there when I was growing up so it is not endearing to me. But still I would like to try it one day.

    When did Nori’s open? I moved to Honolulu in ’81. Is there something similar on Oahu? Shiro’s?

    Just like anyplace. Some foods are great,,,,,,,, some no so. On my frequent trips to Hilo, I have always gone to Nori’s. I would like to have tried the combo platter, with the GIANT musbi’s. I asked Beth Ann’s mom if she could have one made for me to eat at the hotel later on. I couldn’t stop laughing. Was so big!

    Salty food I can put up with. Salty customers, probably not. But salty women will always be more than a mouthful. Especially the one’s that remind me of Li Hing Mui :)

    Parv: adjust your glasses. The “blue-red thread thing” is a reflection of the lighting.

    Molokai Hunter: Salty Women taste good, don’t be a sour grape.

    Kirstina Ryan: I agree, the service can suck! No excuses!

    My take: If you have been drinking and need to fill your stomach, by all means eat here. The salty broth is actually what your body is craving after a hard night of partying. Is it good for you? No. But overall, the noodles and (hopefully a cheeseburger) is enough to coat your stomach.

    Nori’s is actually not a cheap eats compared to the other spots just so you know. But it is convenient, especially after drinking at Bamboo Garden (which is walking distance from this establishment) and located in central Hilo. And an plus is that the menu has enough items to satisfy a wide variety of patrons. So grab a beer, enjoy and hit Nori’s when you end your night!

    My sister and I visited Hilo for the weekend just for my Dad. Our youngest sister took us to Nori’s. (our first time) The food was delicious. Loved their Saimin. Couldn’t leave Hilo without going there once more. This Restaurant is Highly recommended. We shall return. Service was phenominal..fast, friendly and corteous. Got to meet the owner and she gave us a plate of sliced mochi chocolate cake.

    Another note is that ports won’t admit non-operable
    vehicle for roll-on roll-off transport service.
    There are numerous different international car shipping
    companies for example National Transport LLC that will be of interest to
    you. Suppose a national average cost per gallon of gas of $3.

    How could a faulty or troubled garage entry be avoided.
    Not all of the buttons in all of the different car models look the same, but
    the concept is more or less the same. Follow consistently to preserve your remote’s life and function.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your
    website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
