Known for providing generously big portions at very reasonable prices, Hoy Tin Kitchen on Liliha Street excites patrons with a bounty of Chinese food favorites.
This cozy eatery receives accolades from its clientele for popular lunch plate specials such as Beef Chow Funn and other goodies. Wonton Noodle in Soup is another dish that customers wish for — especially as a hearty pick-me-up when it’s chilly out or they crave something hot.
The restaurant also does a brisk amount of business from catering to take-out orders.
Hoy Tin Kitchen’s name translates to “ocean sky,” and it offers a smorgasbord of wildly sought-after dishes.
Last year, the owners of Canton Seafood Restaurant on Keeaumoku Street acquired the business — formerly known as Hoy Tin Chop Suey — and updated the establishment’s name and enhanced its menu.
They retained all the beloved original menu items but also pumped up the excitement with yummy choices from Canton Seafood.
ULTIMATE CHINESE COMFORT FOODS
One of the lip-smacking items available at Hoy Tin Kitchen is the totally comforting rice porridge called Jook ($6.99). Diners seeking some protein inside their Jook can select to include chicken, pork or beef (for an upcharge of $1), or fish or seafood (for an up-charge of $2). Now that there is often a nip in the air due to cooler temperatures this time of year, a healthy bowl of Jook satisfies a multitude of customers with its tasty, easy-to-digest consistency. This bowl of goodness also serves to fortify those who may be feeling a bit under-the-weather.
Another dish at the restaurant that satiates one’s appetite is Oyster Sauce Chicken Noodle ($7.99 or add $1 more for cake noodle). It features luscious crispy chicken, which is skillfully combined with oyster sauce, scrumptious noodles and vegetables.
So, the next time you feel the need to feed on something gratifying, check out the amazing array of dishes at Hoy Tin Kitchen.
