Hoy Tin Kitchen on Liliha Street tantalizes customers’ taste buds with carefully crafted dishes containing large amounts of flavor.
This popular eatery whose name translates to “ocean sky” serves a multitude of Chinese dishes and recently celebrated its first year anniversary under new ownership. The proprietors of Canton Seafood Restaurant on Keeaumoku Street took over the business, formerly known as Hoy Tin Chop Suey, in June of last year, and refreshed the eatery’s name and expanded its menu.
The new owners kept the original menu items but also introduced some exciting choices carried over from Canton Seafood Restaurant.
One of the popular new items available at Hoy Tin Kitchen is the ever so comforting rice porridge known as Jook ($6.99). Diners looking to add a dose of protein to their Jook can choose to include chicken, pork or beef (for an upcharge of $1), or fish or seafood (for an up-charge of $2).
Hoy Tin Kitchen has become a notable local establishment patronized by hungry customers. Much of the business comes from take-out orders and catering.
The restaurant also is known for its big portions and reasonable prices on all of its menu items. An item that guests often reach for is siu mai (pork hash).
Additionally, the restaurant offers a variety of delectable lunch plates ranging from $6.99 to $9.99.
GREAT FOOD TO ‘CHOW’ DOWN ON
Hoy Tin Kitchen’s Beef Chow Funn ($7.99 special, $8.99 regular) is a very popular dish, which contains tender pieces of luscious beef, yummy chow funn noodles, bean sprouts and cabbage. Another tasty item is Singapore Rice Noodle ($7.99 special, $8.99 regular). This dish includes a stir-fry of thin soft rice noodles, shrimp, barbecued pork, bean sprouts, bell peppers, onions, a special house sauce and curry. Special prices are available now until Sept. 15.
