Wanna manapua?

Libby's is one of the go to places if you're looking for hot n fresh manapua. Whenever you see the Pink box, you know it's Libby's in da house. Visitors might wonder what the big deal is about manapua, or dim sum as they call it on the mainland, but here in Hawai'i, especially on Oahu, Libby's for... read more

Their pork Manapua is the best I have ever have!! I love it. Always make a trip here when on the island. Plus take a couple boxes home. They will prepare them for shipping. I crave these! I even had to have a box shipped to the mainland once to satisfy my craving. Just make sure you check their hours,... More

I alternate between Chun Wah, Char Hung Sut, Aiea Manpua & Libby's. Is Libby's still using the same manapua recipe as I remember it tasting better before; substantial & flavorful. Ordered the char siu and chicken manapua which were just okay. On my scale of would- I -brave -the -traffic to go there, I would have to say I'd go... More

I have not been to Libby's Manapua Shop for quite awhile. The prices have gone up and the menu on Tripadvisor needs to have its prices updated. That being said, I was pretty disappointed in the food. I tried the Charsui Pork Manapua, Chicken Manapua, Halfmoon, and Pepeyau. The taste and quality didn't do it for me. The fillings on... More

If you are a local, you either like Libby Manapua or Char Hung Sut in Chinatown. These are usually the go-to places when Hawaii locals want manapua. For those of you that are visiting, you should really try some of the truly "local" foods and manapua is right at the top of the list of local eats. Manapua is the... More

Libby Manapua Shop in Kalihi has the best char siu bao (pork manapua) period. Since they opened their new parking lot right across the street, stopping by to get a load of delicious chow mein, chow fun, pork hash, rice cake, etc. is a breeze. Their prices are very very reasonable compared to other dim sum providers. The gals working... More

Was driving down Kalihi Street and pulled into Libby's on a whim. Had not been there in years. Tried all the manapua(love that black sugar bao) and was not disappointed. The bun is tasty and generously filled. Pork hash as good as any. My only let down was the chow fun; kind of bland and tasteless. Royal Kitchen has them... More

Today, I had the unfortunate experience of buying manapua from Libby Manapua in Kalihi. For one thing their selection is so limited (no baked manapua) and for another, their staff is so unfriendly. When puchasing my items, I noticed that "pepeao" was spelled 'pepeyao" on their menu; which being the proud Hawaiian that I am, brought it to their attention.... More

OMG, I have never tasted manapua this good. The bread is soft and the meat inside is so tasty! I can never eat another manapua without comparing it to Libby's manapua's. My family and I have never had another manapua from the regular stores anymore. My kids love the pork hash. This place is great for those on a budget,... More
