Saimin is Hawaiian egg-noodle soup typically flavored with green onions, soy sauce, and mustard. The broth has a fishy taste because dried shrimp are used to make it, but like Japanese ramen, it takes on different personalities depending on whether it includes wontons, bits of BBQ pork, fish, or just vegetables. Frequently it is served with shredded seaweed or a cooked egg on top. Saimin is so much a part of Hawaiian culture that it is served both as ultra-casual street food and as swanky soup in deluxe dining rooms. It is a lead item at the Islands’ McDonald’s franchises.
