A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS WEEK’S HOUSE SPECIAL: BAH CHUN-STYLE TOFU WITH CHOY SUM ($14.95)
Happy Days Chinese Seafood Restaurant owner Lisa Lum reminisces about when her Kaimuki restaurant opened 16 years ago.
“I can’t believe how fast it’s gone by,” she says.
Taking a look back through the years, the neighborhood eatery has been a staple for the surrounding community, offering generations of families a place to enjoy delicious dim sum during the day and shareable plates of Hong Kong-style food at night.
It has all different kinds of ingredients,” owner Lisa Lum says. “Instead of ordering too much, this dish has everything inside.
As for those irresistible steamed, fried and baked dim sum, Lum reminds customers that there’s still a discount on takeout dim sum orders: 15 percent off when paying with cash, and 10 percent off when using a card. But, the best way to enjoy the dumplings is still by dining in, so that you can watch the carts go by and select your favorites after seeing — and smelling — the options before your very eyes.
Back to the shareable dishes, Happy Days does family-style feasting best with its more than 200 entree selections. And if you can’t decide which dish to order, opt for one that has it all, such as Bah Chun-style Tofu with Choy Sum.
