“Best steamed manapua!”

Char Hung Sut Restaurant
Ranked #393 of 2,524 Restaurants in Honolulu
Neighborhood: Downtown Honolulu
Restaurant details
Neighborhood: Downtown Honolulu
Reviewed February 29, 2012

This is not a restaurant, it's a crowded, hole-in-the-wall factory cranking out cheap, tasty manapua (steamed white buns with red ground pork filling, locals also call these char siu bao), half-moons (rice-paper dumplings stuffed with a meat-and-onion mixture), and shu mai (yellow "open-face" pork dumplings). Everything is under $2, and the manapua can't be beat. Watch the staff make pans of dumplings while you wait for your order, then marvel at the cashier's lightning-fast fingers as he ties up your box. Char Hung Sut is the place to grab a quick snack or a portable lunch for the family en route to the beach.

Hole in the wall place downtown known for their char siu manapua and pork hash. Good value.

Locals will generally point you to Char Hung Sut (or Libby's) as the source of the best manapua (char siu bao or barbecue pork bun) in Hawaii. Located in Honolulu's Chinatown, Char Hung Sut offers takeout only, and is closed on Tuesdays. Personally, I like the fact that the char siu filling is very lean. Best eaten when fresh and still warm.
