IT’S THAT NINJA MAGIC: Nin Nin at Waikiki Yokocho Debuts Pink Curry


(Honolulu, HI)— Curry is one of those dishes that can be indulged in many forms from soupy to dry, over rice, with naan bread, or noodles. However, it’s rare to image curry as pink, yet that’s precisely what Nin Nin has done.

Nin Nin opened in January of this year within Waikiki Yokocho Gourmet Alley at Waikiki Shopping Plaza. Chef Shohei Nakamura comes to Hawaii with Michelin star-training in France, adopting his French learned techniques to the Nin Nin kitchen. His signature dishes, a Japanese-style “Ninja Curry” and “Kunoichi” soup curry, use over 25 types of spices. It’s no wonder then, that Chef Nakamura had his sights set on an innovative new curry.

The savory Pink Curry ($8.95) begins with a white curry as a base and includes onions, ginger and chicken stews with over 15 spices and a mix of beet purée. Contrasting with its shocking pink color, the curry itself is mild and even perfectly suitable for children. “Although you may need to work up the courage to take the first bite due to the color, the taste is mild and very enjoyable,” says Chef Nakamura.” It’s even beautiful in photographs!”

The Pink Curry is limited to 20 dishes per day and served on a first-order basis. This menu item is also eligible for use towards Nin Nin stamp card. Stamp Card-holding guests are encouraged to collect one Shuriken (ninja star) stamp per curry dish ordered and work their way towards becoming a full-fledged Nin Nin Ninja. Every seven (7) stamps earn guests one free topping* with 21 shuriken star stamps earning guests a free curry dish. (*Toppings exclude steak).
