Hiroshima in Honolulu: If you’re a Marukai member (and if you cook Japanese-style, it’s well worth the $10 per year), check out the Hiroshima Fair now through June 11 with such Hiroshima-ken specialities as oyters smoked over cherry wood and Mimiji Manju (maple leaf-shaped cakes).

Marukai Wholesale Mart, 2310 Kamehameha Highway (end of Dillingham); 845-5051.

Delish Dish: Licious Dishes, which features raw, vegan foods, will open a sit-down restaurant in August at 909 Kapiolani Blvd. (close to Ward Avenue). Owner Sylvia Thompson plans lunch and dinner, but will continue her existing business of take-out meal plans and catering services.

For the exact opening date, check Web site: e-liciousdishes.
