HONOLULU (KFVE) -- Russ and Lyle visit another hidden gem in Kalihi. Just off the corner of Nimitz Hwy and Sand Island Access Road is a restaurant called Tatsuo's, this week's Cheap Eats.
Tatsuo's has all of your local favorites, but they also less common lunch menu items. Some dishes worth checking out, the furikake chicken and pastele stew with gandule rice. Russ compares two "surf and turf" plates, "surf" consisting of their garlic ahi and the "turf" portion, hamburger steak, two huge patties with onions and gravy and the sides to boot.
"What did you have today?" asks Russ.
"I had the beef stew and chicken katsu. Those 2 are winners ‘cause they make their own sauce; it's all about the sauce," replies Robin Kim from Mililani.
With one of the most varied menus on the island, there's something for everyone, Tatsuo's is a cheap eats hall of famer.
Russ has a breakfast plate with sausage, toast, rice, eggs and Lyle has katsu curry. Whether you're looking for breakfast or lunch, Tatsuo's has something for everyone; it's this week's Cheap Eats.
