Young’s Fish Market has decades of expertise in serving some of the Hawaii’s most delectable local foods.
The famed eatery has two locations — one in Honolulu’s City Square, and a second, new shop in Kapolei Commons. Together, both sites offer customers a range of edibles to satiate anyone’s Hawaiian food cravings.
“Originally opened in 1951 by my grandparents Wilfred and Charlotte Young on Liliha Street, we are now in our third generation of Young family members operating the business,” shares Daniel Young, company president.
The establishment originally began as a store that sold fish, but as time passed, the business blossomed into what it is today — a warm, inviting Hawaiian/Chinese restaurant and fish-specialty store serving up wonderful local-style eats. The company offers plate lunches, catering, laulau care packages and more.
Young explains that some of most popular dishes at Young’s Fish Market are Laulau, Kalua Pig, Squid Luau, Chicken Long Rice, Butterfish and Watercress, and the company’s Chinese Style Roast Pork.
One more flavorful dish at Young’s Fish Market is the Combo Plate (starting at $19.25 depending on the type of laulau chosen). This hearty plate comes with your choice of laulau, kalua pig, pipikaula, sweet potato, lomi salmon or mac salad, and rice or poi.
A particularly meaty selection on the menu is the Beef Stew Plate ($12.75). It includes tender beef stew, rice or poi, lomi salmon or mac salad.
Featuring a catchy name and tasty ingredients, customers can also opt for Big Al’s Hawaiian Bento ($12). The bento arrives to customers with a mini laulau, kalua pig, pipikaula, sweet potato and one scoop of rice.
An additional possibility from the eatery is the Hawaiian Poke Bowl ($14.25 for shoyu or spicy, $14.50 for limu kohu). This combination features a choice of mini laulau or kalua pig, lomi salmon, and your choice of poke — shoyu, limu kohu, or spicy ahi.
