Hamura’s Saimin

This hole-in-the-wall place is very popular among locals and tourists because you can get a bowl of noodles for about $7 or less. There is limited seating at various counters. Expect to wait in line for a seat.  The kitchen is adjacent to the dining area, so you can watch as they prepare your meal.

Special Regular ($7). It’s special because it’s loaded with slices of pink and white fish balls, half a boiled egg, some wontons, chunks of BBQ beef, and bits of ham. It’s the regular sized portion.

I ordered the Medium Bowl ($4.50) with a side of BBQ Chicken ($1.40). My noodles were topped with ham and cilantro. The hot noodles were very good even though it was a hot and humid day. The BBQ Chicken smelled great and tasted even better!

Inside Hamura’s Saimin is another counter where you can order shaved ice.  The regular sized Shaved Ice is $2.25. You can get up to 3 flavors. I picked lychee and passion fruit.  Shaved Ice with Ice Cream is $3. The flavors are strawberry and lime. The vanilla ice cream is at the bottom and it is much better than the regular shaved ice. It sort of tastes like a Creamsicle.

Overall, this place is a great value, but don’t expect any frills.
