There are a ton of excellent omakase options in Honolulu, but Sushi ii, tucked away in a strip mall, is one of the few that also offers creative cooked dishes. Alongside impeccable sushi like dashi-marinated ikura, golden eye snapper from Japan and local, live baby abalone, you can also order things like the ikura pan, a perfect mashup of salmon roe and creme fraiche slathered on a King’s Hawaiian roll. You definitely need to make a reservation, but aim to get a seat at the sushi bar, where you can joke around with sushi chefs as they skillfully slice thick pieces of akamutsu.
