Marination’s Hawaiian-Korean cuisine melts delicate heat and the flavors of aloha together in your mouth. Our menu has expanded considerably in the short few years we’ve been operating, but we’re best known for our tacos which come in
four flavors: spicy pork, kalbi beef, ginger miso chicken, and sexy tofu. Yes, our tofu is sexy. Real sexy. So are the folks
who enjoy it. Here are some highlights from our main menu. Pics and descriptions of the new menu items available at Marination ma kai are coming soon. For now please take a look at the ma kai menu.
Each taco is made with two warm 4″ corn tortillas, stuffed with your choice of sweet and savory kalbi, luscious pork, miso ginger chicken, or sexy tofu (that’s right, we said sexy tofu) and topped with our Nunya Sauce and a tangy, crunchy signature slaw.
Miso ginger chicken – You don’t need an explanation of this brilliant marriage of simplicity, right? It’s miso ginger chicken. It’s love and soul and flavor. It’s ginger and miso and chicken. ‘Til death do they part.
Kalbi – Tender short ribs marinated in Kamala’s version of the iconic Korean recipe. Soy-based marinade all hugged up with garlic, and a mistress of citrus to satisfy your need for salty-sweet variety love. Kalbi tofu is at the ready for the saucy herbivores among us. All of the pleasure with none of the cow.
Spicy pork – A progressive version of classic Korean bulgogi. Rich red pepper smackdown heats up the belly but leaves your mouth in tact. Sliced super thin for flavor galore.
Warm and soft, stuffed with our signature slaw and your choice of spicy, juicy, shredded kalua pork, or SPAM* so good you’ll want more for your inbox. Nunya sauce inside for good measure. *You wouldn’t know it was SPAM if we didn’t tell you, and when you’re done you’ll understand why it’s the unofficial national food of Hawaii.
You like chopsticks? Coolio. Served with sunny side up fried egg. Add any one of our meats or tofu and tell your friends to call you back in a bit.
A really good thing with another really good thing plus cilantro and kalua pork. Believe.
The perennial staple of surfers and late-nighters worldwide. Perfectly grilled slice of SPAM makin’ love to a paddycake of rice wrapped in a seaweed blanket. Think SPAM sushi. No soy sauce necessary. Just a napkin, and possibly a support group. *Note! SPAM Musubi is a frequent guest star but is not, repeat IS NOT, on the all-the-time menu. Nobody would eat anything else. They’re that good.
