Diner A recently treated our office to lunch, bringing us this scrumptious spread of Dim Sum delights from Chun Wah Kam Noodle Factory’s new restaurant location in the also new Crossroads to Kapolei Shopping Center.
Nothing beats a piping-hot ‘n fresh box of steamed Manapua….
Under the lid we have 3 steamed charsiu and 3 BBQ Chicken Manapua…
Here we have a tray of their Pork Hash…
Notice how yellow the wonton wrappers are. Chun Wah Kam sells fresh wonton wrappers locally at most supermarkets. Their main competitor is Sun Noodle, along with other frozen brands such as Shirokiku.
Finally we have a tray of Chow Funn noodles….
Let’s plate ’em up and sample some cuz!…
Notice I also have a serving of Kaiulani’s absolutely ono Exotic Curry Fried Rice with Cranberries on the plate, which I brought to share with everyone in the office as well.
I’m very impressed with Chun Wah Kam’s Manapua, arguably making them now my favorite Manapua shop. I used to rank Libby’s #1 and Char Hung Sut a close second, but it seems lately Libby’s really been skimping on their Charsiu. As you see, Chun Wah Kam’s charsiu filing is adequately generous, very moist and spot-on true to how local style charsiu manapua filling should taste. Just a really good Manapua. That BBQ Chicken version was pretty darned good too. Different, that’s for sure. Not one I’d get on a regular basis, but ono never-the-less!
Their pork hash is “a-aight”. Just O.K.. I’d say Libby’s Pork Hash is better. Although I really wanna’ try Chun Wah Kam’s deep-fried Pork Hash, which Diner A previously raved about.
The Chow Funn is also a-aight. Filling for sure and packed with what tasted like Hoisin flavor. Personally I prefer the simpler and more subtle Okazuya style Chow Funn, but this works.
Overall a very simple-yet-satisfying Dim Sum lunch, and big mahalos to Diner A for the lunchtime grindz aloha! You da’ man!
Chun Wah Kam now has three locations, with the food you see here from their new restaurant in the also-new Crossroads at Kapolei Shopping Center, being an anchor tenant alongside neighboring Simply Organized,
The Tasty Island Rating:
