Located near the corner of Smith Street in the heart of Chinatown, this small manapua kitchen is one of the islands' best know local secrets. This family-run spot has been cranking out char siu bao, siu mai and noodles for over a generation. Unfortunately, you may have to circle the block over and over to find parking to get your hands on the inexpensive and yummy goodness that they offer. However, the trick is to arrive early, especially for the flaky ma tai su. It's the perfect alternative for that family pot luck or lunch at the beach with friends.
