Did this: Taste of Marukai

This year’s Taste of Marukai proved to be another delightfully quirky food and sake fest


Posted April 12, 2013 by Diane Seo

This year’s Taste of Marukai proved to be another delightfully quirky food and sake fest, with hundreds congregating Thursday evening at Marukai Wholesale Mart for the eighth-annual event. As in past years, tables were stationed throughout the store, allowing attendees to graze and sip from dozens of sake and dishes. The sold-out event, which supports several local charities, featured entertainment by Keith Nakaganeku, taiko drumming, a soba-making demonstration and the cutting of a 103-pound ahi (see video below).

It's one of the city's most popular food fests — and it all takes place in a supermarket.
