Specialty Dishes: Oxtail Soup

In lieu of healing chicken soup, Asahi Grill’s oxtail soup is what many Hawaiians turn to for comfort, especially when they’re feeling under the weather. The restaurant was started by a Chinese man and later taken over by an Okinawan. Both served the hearty soup. Like Hawaii’s melting pot of people, this soup reflects a blending of ethnic flavors. The oxtail is boiled for two to three hours in a clear broth full of Chinese herbs, which makes it fall-off-the-bone tender. Dip the meat in the accompanying shoyu and ginger to give it another layer of flavor.
