New Eagle Cafe may no longer be new, but its traditional local foods continue to whisk away guests to simpler, happier times.
The eatery first opened in the 1950s and has been graciously serving generations of Hawaii’s families ever since. From the minute diners walk into New Eagle, they feel as though they’ve traveled back in time to the days of big-booth seating, dim-lighting and good old-fashioned local food.
The restaurant proudly offers a mix of American, Japanese and Korean cuisine, along with lots of seafood options. Patrons may find all of their favorite dishes at New Eagle Cafe, with more than 100 menu items ranging from pasta dishes to various teishoku sets.
Owner Tae Im recommends Prime Rib for Two. Priced at $47, this juicy meal is perfect for your next date night or dinner out with a friend. It includes an 8-ounce slab of prime rib, hot veggies, a choice of starch, soup or salad, soft drink and dessert.
Another customer favorite is Hawaiian Chop Steak Stir Fry ($13.25). “This is made with beef, green bell peppers, onions and tomato,” says Im.
The stir-fried ingredients are served on a sizzling platter, and the mouthwatering sauce is great for enjoying over rice.
Last, but certainly not least, Mandoo Min ($10.55) offers great value in the form of a steamy saimin. Guests can slurp up every last bit of the fishcake, eggs, sweet pork, green onions and Korean dumplings included in the meal.
New Eagle Cafe is conveniently located at Nimitz Center along Nimitz Highway. For more information about its daily specials and menu items, call 545-2233 or 545-1136, or visit neweaglecafehawaii.com.
