A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS WEEK’S HOUSE SPECIAL: Mini Stone Pot with Beef ($17.99)

Since opening Spicy Pavilion in April, Gary Tu and his wife, Wendy Cheng, along with their daughter Qi Tu, have made it their mission to serve up mouthwatering temptations that will spice up your life.

The restaurant got its start when the family was inspired to turn Gary’s cooking hobby into a tasty new business. “Our friends and family would come over for dinner all the time because they loved my dad’s cooking,” describes Qi, who also manages the restaurant.

With three different eateries already established in California, the Tu ohana decided to bring the best in Chinese fare to the Islands. Located in Chinatown Cultural Plaza, Spicy Pavilion specializes in spicy cuisine, particularly from the Chinese province of Sichuan.

Prepared without MSG, all of the restaurant’s dishes are made to order and can be customized to your liking. A couple of the most popular dishes include Boiled Sliced Fish in Hot sauce and Sichuan Mao Xue Wang.

New and returning customers alike should try Spicy Pavilion’s Mini Stone Pot with Beef specialty, a can’t-miss offering that will bring the heat to your palate.

And if Dad is a fan of spicy cuisine, take advantage of the restaurant’s Father’s Day special, featuring a 10 percent discount off your entire bill.
