Homemade Saimin Island Style

This is one of my absolute favorite go to comfort foods. Saimin is a plantation era inspired dish unique to Hawaii. We are so fortunate to still have locations spread throughout the islands that specialize in this delicacy. Each location having their own flavorful dashi broth made with bonito, dried shrimp, kombu or a combination of these ingredients. Each location being known for their style of noodles and toppings as well. While the toppings are traditional, feel free to go as simple or as decadent as you wish. There are many versions here in Hawaii, Chinese style with thin noodles, Robust Japanese Style Ramen but nothing compares to our Island Style.
