Jade Dynasty Seafood Restaurant, conveniently located in Ala Moana Center, has transformed your typical Chinese fare into something a bit more unconventional with the unveiling of two new dishes, Shrimp Mixed with Bamboo Fungus and Cheese and Walnut Custard Tart.

“Both of these dishes aren’t listed on our menu, but customers can request them,” says general manager Gary Chan.

Priced at $16.95, Shrimp Mixed with Bamboo Fungus features savory pieces of shrimp nestled inside hollow bamboo fungus. It’s then topped with a clear chicken broth gravy and hints of carrot. Shanghai bak choy is served on the side. As for Jade Dynasty’s Cheese and Walnut Custard Tart ($3.50 for three pieces), Chan says this is a unique take on the average Custard Tart dim sum.

“We take the Custard Tart and top it with American cheese, and inside the custard tart are bits of walnut,” he explains. “It’s sweet, but the cheese gives it a bit of a bite. It’s something very different. I think we’re the only restaurant to offer this.”

Home of the Perry and Price Show, Jade Dynasty caters to all events and special occasions (call ahead to make reservations), and in celebration of Easter, the restaurant also is offering a Sunday brunch buffet from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
