There’s no better way to stray away from crowds of tourists than to venture off the beaten path toward Nimitz Highway, where you’ll find the conveniently located New Eagle Cafe.
This classic local eatery offers its guests a family-friendly, diner-style atmosphere and good food to go with it. According to owner Tae Im, three of New Eagle Cafe’s most popular dishes are Eggs Benedict ($12.95), Hawaiian Chopped Steak ($12) and Loco Moco ($11.75).
Representing a breakfast favorite around the world, the restaurant’s traditional Eggs Benedict is a definite crowd pleaser. It is served on two halves of an English muffin and topped with ham, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce. Adding a dose of comfort to the dish, hash browns come on the side.
As for Hawaiian Chopped Steak, this entree is locally loved and served with chopped and sauteed beef made with celery, onions, tomatoes and bell peppers. It’s presented with a side of rice, vegetables and your choice of mashed potatoes or fries.
Last but not least is a meal that will leave you stuffed to the brim. New Eagle Cafe’s Loco Moco features a large, homemade hamburger patty that’s placed over a few scoops of rice, smothered in gravy and topped with two eggs.
Im has one short and simple explanation behind his customers’ undying love for these three dishes: “They’re just good!”
