Chun Wah Kam Noodle Factory

Asian in ʻAiea

Fans of this mini-chain line up for manapua (Hawaii version of Chinese-style steamed or baked buns) stuffed with anything from char siu (Chinese barbecued park) or guava BBQ pork to purple sweet potatoes. Ginormous mix-and-match plate lunches are forgettable, however. This minimall is chockablock with many more Asian and local joints. Browse prepared dishes before you order; wait times are much less than branches in Honolulu.
