Seafood Village Chinese Cuisine, situated in Hyatt Regency Waikiki Resort and Spa, features traditional Hong Kong-style desserts that offer customers a taste of the Pearl of the Orient.
Almond Tofu ($3.95) has the consistency of Jell-O, which makes it a winner with the keiki. Each piece sits in a sugary soup base adding to the sweetness and flavor of the dish. Almond Tofu served at Seafood Village is similar to almond float — and as we all know, the almond tofu pieces are the best part.
According to manager Johnson Ma, Mango Pudding ($4.50) is popular in Hong Kong, and Seafood Village appreciates that this dessert showcases the local mango flavor that’s a favorite among many.
Tapioca in Coconut Soup ($3.95) is just as refreshing to the palate.
This sweet soup features tiny tapioca balls and the soup base makes it an easy-to-eat after-dinner treat.
All of the aforementioned items are available during lunch and dinner. For dim sum fanatics, there are additional dim sum-style desserts offered at lunch as well, such as Jin Dui filled with coconut and red bean paste, and Steamed Egg Cream Buns.
What makes these traditional desserts even sweeter is that they are all made in-house.
“We don’t serve anything pre-made. Our chefs make them all fresh to order,” Ma says.
If you’re yearning for genuine Chinese cuisine in a contemporary setting, look no further than Seafood Village Chinese Cuisine. Along with an excellent dim sum menu, the establishment features VIP rooms, which are perfect for special occasions and parties.
