Dining Out: Blazin' Steaks in Manoa

We've always wondered if Blazin' Steaks at the Manoa Marketplace was any good.  For the price, we must say, it's pretty good.  The female half of this couple tried this place the early part of 2010 (Downtown Honolulu location).  The steak plates were ok, but everything else wasn't and the selection was poor.

For the past few months, we've threw out the idea to try the Manoa location...but the female half of the couple was reluctant due to the experience she had at the Downtown location.  Today we decided to go for it and we're happy we did.  We found another inexpensive place in Manoa with surprisingly good fish!  Wow, imagine that.  For $6.95 we got the sweet chili fish plate which had some sort of white fish with sweet chili sauce (yum), 2 scoops of brown rice and tossed greens.  We also ordered the grilled steak plate which came with grilled steak seasoned with salt and pepper, 2 scoops of brown rice and tossed greens.  We thought for $6.95 we'd get a piece of dried out fishy tasting fish, but the fish was moist and better than the steak!

Plates come with the choice of white or brown rice or for $1 more you can get fried rice.  There's a self service "bar" with condiments like Korean BBQ sauce, ketchup, shoyu (soy sauce), etc.  The selection at this location is pretty big.  See menu.

We're definitely going back...maybe to try the Thai peanut sauce fish.

NOTE: 4/5/11 - If you shop at the Safeway in Manoa, there is a $2 off have to buy the large plate and a drink which eats up the $ really not a savings if you weren't going to buy a drink.
