HONOLULU (KHON2) — A popular shop, known for its poke and fried chicken, is closing its Ala Moana location.
Sunday, December 22, marked the last day to check out Tanioka’s Ala Moana pop-up. The family-owned business opened in town October 2019 and it’s been regularly packed. It was open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The store was located on level two in the Ewa wing, between Jamba and Zara.
After Sunday, you’ll have to head out to Waipahu to get your Tanioka’s fix.
“We’re so grateful for our customers who came out in full support and you know we’re just so blessed. And really, really our staff has been amazing. They have just worked so hard to put this together and we’re so grateful,” said Tanioka’s CFO Jasmine Tanioka.
“Sad to leave?” We asked.
“We are sad to leave. We’re gonna miss everybody,” she said.
Sad to leave?
Tanioka’s said that it plans to do more pop-ups across the island and they hope to return to the mall every year.
