A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS WEEK’S HOUSE SPECIAL: Dungeness Crab, fried with pepper and spicy salt ($23.95 per pound)

There’s a new restaurant in the neighborhood, and with it comes well-seasoned menus and experience. House of Wong Restaurant made its culinary debut on Kapahulu Avenue earlier this month, serving up the finest in authentic Chinese cuisine. “Our goal is to keep our food consistent and in good quality,” says general manager Michael Wang.

Formerly known as China Garden Restaurant, House of Wong previously resided in Waikiki for 29 years, and hopes to continue its appetizing history at the Kapahulu digs. But even with a new location and name, the restaurant still offers the same delectable meals from its long-standing and mouthwatering menu — including notable Spicy Pork Chop and Honey Walnut Shrimp dishes.

This week, however, Dining Out is featuring the restaurant’s house specialty, Dungeness Crab, which is fried with pepper and spicy salt. The crab is carefully cooked and seasoned because, according to Wang, “control of the temperature and timing is what makes the difference.” Indeed, just one juicy and flavorful bite will make you glad you’ve played your part in this highly tasty and seconds-worthy dish.
