Vegetable Tan Tan

This is my favorite ramen place in Hawaii. The soup broth in the Tan Tan ramen is spicy and flavorful. The noodles are usually cooked al dente which, to me, is a must. My favorites are vegetable tan tan and wakame tan tan. We always order a side of gyoza.

Beware of their short hours. They also take every holiday imaginable off.


We’re in Hawaii for our anniversary and brought all our family and friends to Side Street Inn for dinner. I have been here many times and enjoy the place tremendously.
Tonight we started with the calamari, side style famous fried rice, traditional basil pesto crusted ahi filets, pan fried island pork chop, 12oz Sizzling rib eye steak, hoisin chicken, Kim chee.
All was delicious.
We ordered edamame with garlic and escargot. The edamame was over cooked, too mushy and the escargot was cheesy ,,, but weird.

We had the Lilikoi creme brûlée, Fried butter pound cake, brownie ala mode. All agreed dessert was really good.

This side street location has been remodeled and looks great. Lots of flat screen tv for sports.
5 stars…. Highly recommended for great food and a good time. a REAL LOCAL Favorite spot.  Check it out…
