The team at Golden Palace Seafood Restaurant on North King Street is ready, willing and able to accommodate your food wish list this holiday season.
Manager Gary Lam explains that the famed, family-run Chinese restaurant opened in 2001 and serves a variety of delightful eats, including an array of bitesized dim sum choices, all affordably priced at $2.69 per order. Some of the most popular dim sum items are Shumai (pork hash), Har Gau (shrimp dumpling), Baked Manapua and Fried Taro Puff.
“All our dim sum is very popular as party pupus and potluck items. We have the best-priced dim sum on the island. We don’t sacrifice quantity or quality,” Lam stresses.
Lam also emphasizes that the restaurant has openings for its upstairs banquet room, which holds 400-plus people and has a sound system. It can be booked for upcoming holiday get-togethers or any event year-round for that matter, he adds. What’s more, the restaurant can seat close to 200 people downstairs. Golden Palace is open seven days a week, every day of the year, Lam notes. “Regardless of whatever situation is on hand, people will always need to eat,” he says.
BE ‘CHEW’-SY WITH NOODLES
Golden Palace Seafood Restaurant has plenty of party platters available for any of your special holiday occasions.
For example, you and your loved ones can bite into some toothsome noodle nirvana with the Gon Lo Mein platter ($19 small pan). The Gon Lo Mein contains a delicious stir-fried mix of egg noodles, shredded char siu, carrots, bean sprouts, round onions, green onions, chives and cabbage.
Another party platter option is Singapore Rice Noodles ($19 small pan). This packed pan contains shredded char siu, eggs, shrimp, bean sprouts, carrots, chives, round onions, green onions and rice noodles, all stir-fried together in a curry powder. Restaurant manager Gary Lam explains that the curry adds some wonderful flavor and aroma to this dish, but it is not too spicy.
The small party platter pans can feed about 12-15 people, and the restaurant also offers bigger sized pans. For example, a medium pan that costs $32 can feed about 20-25 people, and a large pan that costs $64 can feed between 40-45.
Besides the two previously mentioned party platters, Lam shares that customers can choose other platters if they have a specific dish in mind that they would like to order, such as Beef Chow Funn or something else that strikes their fancy.
