Hawaii Mom Blog: Lucky Belly




July 28, 2012

Lucky Belly

Honolulu's Chinatown district has evolved over recent years. What was once an area to be avoided once the sun goes down, is now the place-to-be, day or night. Restaurants and bars have revitalized and cleaned up the area, making it a destination point for both party-goers and foodies.

The most recent culinary edition to this historic district is Lucky Belly. Word is quickly spreading about this place, and I can honestly say that the food and service live up to the hype. Most new places have a lot of kinks to iron out, but not at Lucky Belly. Service is smooth and the food is excellent.

Lucky Belly took over the space formerly occupied by Mini Garden, on the corner of Hotel and Smith Streets.

Shrimp Gyoza ($7) - plump, juicy, and filled with chunks of shrimp

Duck Lumpia $7 - flaky, crispy, and not gamey-tasting

Bing Cherry Sauce for the Duck Lumpia

Lucky Bowl $8 - rich and flavorful. Noodles were slightly overcooked.

Ku Chu Jung Braised Brisket Tartine $10 - tender, delectable, mouth-watering.

This is "The Window" for the late night service. Here they serve their pork bao sandwiches, shrimp gyoza and chow fun in Chinese take out boxes.
