The plate lunch crowd in Kakaako has one less option to turn to.

After more than five decades, Tsukenjo Lunch House is closing its doors for good. The Cooke street eatery has served up plate lunches since 1959.

Owner Doris Nabarro said she's finally retiring after the restaurant has been in her family for several generations. 

"Over the years, we did a lot of, feeding a lot of people," Nabarro said. "From governors on down to the homeless, all different types of people. It becomes like a family and that's how we treat our customers too, just like family.

Nabarro says she has no plans to re-open anywhere else.
