It’s always a fun adventure to try out a new Chinese restaurant, where you hungrily peruse the menu to carefully make your choice in the hope the food meets your high expectations. Here on Oahu, where Chinese eateries abound, that first impression is a lasting one.

And for those chopstick-wielding foodies who don’t eat meat, there are usually a few vegetarian choices scattered among extensive lists of meat and seafood selections, and the struggle to find something you can eat can become more of a chore than an adventure.

Lucky for vegetable lovers, the new Jade Dynasty Seafood Restaurant in Ala Moana Center has an entire section of its extensive menu devoted to “Special Vegetarian Dishes,” making it easy to put those chopsticks to work.

Manager Gary Chan shares his favorite with Dining Out readers.

“Actually, if people ask, I always recommend the Black Mushrooms, Bamboo Fungus and Seasoned Vegetables ($11.95),” he says. Perfect! Hearty black mushrooms and protein-rich bamboo fungus combined with crisp-tender stir-fried vegetables results in a satisfyingly complex, healthy and delicious dish.

With its refined, opulent decor and fast, friendly service, your Chinese culinary adventure in paradise awaits at Jade Dynasty Seafood Restaurant.
