Waimalu Chop Suey, better known as the ‘House of Gau Gee’ to loyal patrons, has been feeding hungry tummies with Northern Chinese cuisine for nearly 50 years. New owner Jacky Wang assures that all the same local favorites remain and would like to encourage new patrons to try the eatery as well.

“We just want to thank all of our customers and let them know how much we appreciate them,” Wang says.

For more than 20 years, diners from all over Oahu, even outer Islands have flocked to the restaurant to try their signature Roast Pork. Wang describes the wonderfully indulgent pork belly, complete with crackling skin, as “crunchy, tasty, moist … yummy, yummy!”

The ever-popular Char Siu and Roast Duck also are available, and all of these platters are perfect for holiday family gatherings. Call the restaurant (488.1616) for details on ordering these savory roasted meats.

While management at Waimalu may have changed, the same welcoming atmosphere lives on. After the lunch crowd has died down, you will find friendly staffers sitting in the back, molding the famed Crispy Gau Gee ($9.25 for eight pieces) daily.

Other local favorites include Honey Glazed Walnut Shrimp ($11.25) and Salt and Pepper Pork Chops ($9.25).

The reputable establishment offers a great feasting opportunity, with free, live Maine lobster with dine-in orders of $50 or more (must present ad found on Page 21). The satisfying seafood dish is served brightly with ginger and green onion, black bean sauce or with salt and pepper.

For great food, friends and a piece of local tradition, stop by Waimalu Chop Suey, located within Waimalu Shopping Center.
