Spring Mountain Road’s 33,000-square-foot Golden Spring Plaza, a smaller scale rival to the Shanghai Plaza, now hosts Shigotonin, a Japanese-style tapas and sake bar, easy to find at the intersection with Duneville Street.

The izakaya, created by the former operator of the very low key Tempura Express, hidden inside a Honolulu grocery store, held its grand opening on September 1. The restaurant describes itself as offering “traditional Japanese dishes, regional specialties, and homemade cuisine with a modern flare.”

Start with cold tofu with ikura, miso cheese, or roast pork, or try grilled mackerel, a salmon baguette, or salmon or scallop carpaccio. A short list of sushi and sashimi options, garlic fried rice, three kinds of chazuke, and tuna katsu round out the tight menu. Shigotonin also offers a range of sakes.

Shigotonin, 5845 Spring Mountain Road, 702-201-1404. Open Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday from 5 to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to midnight. Takeout, delivery, and dine in available. Call for details.
