Black Bean Sauce Beef Chow Fun ($10.95)

If you’ve paid a visit to Happy Days Chinese Seafood Restaurant on Waialae Avenue, then you know that its offerings include more than 100 mouthwatering dishes plus seemingly endless appetizing dim sum options.

For those old and new to the establishment, you’ll find the restaurant’s Jai ($11.95) to be a refreshing meal for the hot days that have been sweeping the island. Comprised of an array of vegetables, a light sauce and long rice noodles, Jai will have everyone happily slurping every last bite.

Chinese Broccoli w/Dried Flounder ($12.95)

Also, chow down on Black Bean Sauce Beef Chow Fun ($10.95) for a satiable meat option. It features generous cuts of beef entwined by soft chow fun noodles that are flavored just enough to complete the dish with a savory sauce. It’s the perfect accompaniment for any item on the menu.

Sweet Sour Cabbage w/ Squid ($13.95)

For example, it could be paired with a vibrant plate of Chinese Broccoli w/Dried Flounder ($12.95), which will add a nice refreshing crunch to one’s meal. Steamed Chinese broccoli act as a sufficient partner to the bits of crisp dried flounder pieces that scatter the dish. The fish flakes are the perfect level of saltiness and seafood that are offset by the clean taste of broccoli, providing diners with a balanced bite.

Another seafood selection is Sweet Sour Cabbage w/ Squid ($13.95) that also has a nice munch from the cabbage. The sweet-sour flavor is evident and welcoming as it adds a pleasant indulgence that goes well with the tender slivers of squid that are cooked to just the right firmness.

Check out these taste bud knockouts plus more on your next trip to Happy Days, plus don’t forget about its dim sum hours that run from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., daily. If you stop in after 3, not to worry, owner Lisa Lum says customers still can order certain dim sum individually. Also, inquire about the eatery’s dim sum take-out-only special that applies a discount to orders until 11:30 a.m.
