Hawaii Mom Blog: YI XIN CAFE




July 19, 2023


My list of good Chinese restaurants outside of Chinatown is steadily growing.  One of the newcomers on the list is Yi Xin Cafe in Market City Shopping Center.  Although they opened without much publicity or fan-fare, word spread very quickly. We decided to allow the hype to settle down before trying it out for a weekday lunch.

Service was friendly and the food came out quick. Here's what the four of us shared:

Thai Style Pork Cheek

Beef Chow Funn

Hong Kong Style Garlic Stir-Fried Prawns

Salted Egg Yolk Chicken Wings

Every dish was flavorful, rich, and delicious!! I wasn't sure if I would like the Salted Egg Yolk Chicken Wings (I normally don't eat egg yolks), but the wings were delicious and very moist. My most favorite dish of today was the beef chow funn - it is rich in soy flavor and the noodles were cooked perfectly (not overcooked and mushy). I really wanted to try the sizzling beef with black bean sauce, but one of our friends doesn't eat red meat, so we passed on it, but I'm definitely going to try it the next time I'm here. Apparently their drinks are supposed to be good too.

Closed on Mondays.
