As a melting pot of cuisine and culture, Hawaii is home to a treasure trove of dishes waiting to be discovered — and devoured. And at Jade Dynasty Seafood Restaurant in Ala Moana Center, customers can dig into a royal lineup of food inspired by China.
After each trip to Asia, the owners of Jade Dynasty are always inspired to bring back new culinary ideas to play with.
From their latest venture is Drunken Clams ($19.95) that has about a pound of fresh Manila clams boiled in a Shaoxing Chinese wine broth. Customers can slurp this special dish up from now until the end of August, or possibly longer, according to general manager Gary Chan.
Besides serving up quality, classic Chinese food on its dining menu, the restaurant also has an extensive dim sum menu, along with six different banquet menus that can be customized to your party’s preference.
Diners can mix and match dishes on any of the banquet menus, which can feed any size party — from a small group of 10 to a large gathering of 100 or more.
Also try Dynasty Tea-Smoke Tiger Prawns ($22.95), featuring stir-fried tiger prawns with a special soy sauce on a bed of crispy Iron Buddha Tea leaves, or sink your teeth into tender Braised Pork Ribs in Chef’s Special Sauce ($19.95), which can be shredded and stuffed into warm bao buns for an additional $2 for four pieces. Both are available on the banquet menu and can be served in larger portions (prices vary) to accommodate your party.
With more than 8,000 square feet of space, Jade Dynasty is prepared to handle all gatherings — large or small, professional or casual. As a bonus, the restaurant has a 32-foot wide stage, seven private rooms, TVs and sound and projection systems to help in hosting your event.
