There’s certainly one surefire way to send your spirits soaring, and that’s by enjoying a mouth-watering meal at New Eagle Cafe.

This admired local eatery is located at Nimitz Center within the lively commercial and industrial area of Nimitz Highway.

Famished families and other local customers from all walks of life stop by the establishment regularly to sample all the scrumptious menu items, from classic American cuisine to island-style eats and Asian favorites. When one adds to the fact that this restaurant has prices that won’t break the bank, it’s no wonder New Eagle Cafe continues as a landmark destination in the neighborhood.

Macadamia Nut Hotcake Combo ($10.75)

Although the restaurant’s address has varied throughout the decades, New Eagle Cafe eventually landed in its current centrally located spot, and owner Tae Im took over the reins from previous proprietors in 2012.

The eatery’s friendly staff welcomes customers with a full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu, seven days a week. Among the restaurant’s popular items are Loco Moco, Eagle Burger, Oxtail Soup and more. Don’t forget to save a spot in your tummy for desserts, as New Eagle Cafe offers an array of different fruit-flavored pies and other carefully concocted confections.

Spicy Pork ($17)

When you’re in the mood to start the day on a sweet note, go for Macadamia Nut Hotcake Combo ($10.75). This dish provides fortunate customers with a tower of fluffy hotcakes. Sprinkled with sliced mac nuts and served with a dollop of house-crafted coconut-cream sauce, these warm pancakes are perfectly paired with your choice of meat and an egg.

A menu item that customers constantly order is Roasted Prime Rib ($24.50), a 10-ounce slab of beefy goodness. Slow-roasted and served with brown or white rice, mashed potatoes or fries, and mixed veggies, this tender chunk of meat is nothing short of satisfying and delicious.

The succulent dish is also served with flavorful au jus to enhance this awesome plate even further. Diners with even larger appetites can choose to order a double-cut for an additional cost.

Spicy Pork ($17) is an exquisite Korean-style dish of porcine pleasure. This entree is served to patrons with fanfare on a sizzling skillet along with a side of rice. The pork is skillfully steeped in a marinade of sweet flavors combined with a hot pepper sauce for some kick.

With good eats always available, diners can swoop into New Eagle Cafe whenever the mood for heart-warming plates of food strikes.
