Great food, value and exciting promotions converge at Zippy’s Restaurants, which has built its stellar reputation over the past 50-plus years by serving up tasty local-style comfort food and keeping up with culinary trends by offering seasonal specials coupled with popular giveaways.
Zippy’s is helping local diners kick off the new year on a lucky note via its popular Las Vegas Giveaway. Zippy’s has teamed up with Vacations Hawaii to give away 24 grand-prize trips from Honolulu to Las Vegas, including hotel accommodations at the newly renovated California Hotel, which was voted 2017’s Best Downtown Casino by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. With any purchase, guests receive an entry blank for a chance to win one of the 24 grand prizes, and diners have ample opportunities to enter now through Feb. 11.
In conjunction with the Las Vegas Giveaway, Zippy’s is also featuring a special offer available through Jan. 31: The popular Spaghetti & Chicken Mixed Plate can be enjoyed for just $7.40 at the fast-food counter and $8.50 at the dine-in restaurant 24 hours a day. The local favorite includes spaghetti noodles topped with meat sauce or a choice of Zippy’s chili, as well as golden fried chicken, macaroni salad and a slice of garlic bread.
“We have consistently strived to maintain our food quality and the great local tastes that have helped build our reputation throughout the years, especially with our signature items,” says Jeanine Mamiya-Kalahiki, marketing manager at Zippy’s Restaurants. “Times have changed, but what remains consistent is good quality, great taste and service with aloha.”
Zippy’s Oriental Tofu Salad ($8.95 in the dine-in restaurant only, may be ordered 24 hours a day) is available now through Jan. 31 as the featured salad of the month. The fresh creation is built with chopped Iceberg lettuce topped with diced tofu and tomatoes, chopped broccoli, uzumaki (fishcake), furikake, green onions and golden-fried wonton strips for an added crunch. The refreshing salad is drizzled with house dressing and served with a side of ginger sesame dressing.
Breakfast items continue to draw rave reviews at Zippy’s, as is the case with Macadamia Creme Waffle, Pancakes and French Toast ($8.25 apiece in the restaurant only, available 24 hours a day through Feb. 28). The savory dessert combo serves as the perfect end to one’s dining experience, or as a sweet snack any time of the day. One’s choice of a crisp Belgian waffle, short stack of golden, fluffy pancakes or Zippy’s French toast is topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and finished with a rich macadamia creme sauce.
In time for the recent rainy days and chilly weather, Zippy’s recommends two of its popular saimin choices available 24 hours a day in the dine-in restaurant only. Pork Saimin ($11.15) includes slices of roast pork, char siu, choy sum, egg, fishcake and green onions over saimin noodles and dashi. Chicken Katsu Curry Saimin ($9.35) is another local favorite featuring slices of crisp, golden-fried chicken katsu, char siu, choy sum, egg, fishcake and green onions over saimin noodles and dashi mixed with curry sauce.
