a sybarite in paradise
reviewing the food & entertainment pleasures of Honolulu
 
 
I’m not in Aiea/Pearl City much, but when I am, I go to Chun Wah Kam for Dim Sum. They have lots of steam trays full of delicious looking food, but I always have the manapua (they have 16 or so varieties) and other Dim Sum. Today I met Howard for lunch and we had Kalua Pork Manapua, Char Sui Manapua, Gyoza, and Duck Buns. The duck buns here are my favorite. They’re so
good. The don’t photograph well though. The gyoza were fat and tasty, if not quite hot. Both manapua were tasty, although Howard didn’t think there was much meat in the Kalua Pork one. I think it was just that I got the lion’s share when I split it in half. Usually, this place is packed at lunch, but we pulled our number and didn’t wait more that a minute before we were called. Parking can be a little tight right at lunchtime, but it’s well worth waiting for a spot.
