DINING IN KAPOLEI

Real estate in Oahu’s new Second City and Kapolei is priced right for big families looking for big homes, lots of bedrooms and square footage as well as for small families looking to buy their very first home. Of course, as with many family-style neighborhoods, there is a wide variety of about every fast food chain on the planet.
But don’t let the First City of fast food appearance fool you. With classic upscale faves like Assagio’s and Roy’s, dining in Kapolei has a more sophisticated side that may appeal to you on occasion.
Chung Wah Kam Noodle Factory
Craving noodles? The Chung Wah Kam Noodle Factory in Kapolei is the restaurant’s newest and largest location on Oahu, making the selection and the experience a must try.
Whether it is beef chow fun, udon, samin, Singapore egg noodles, or chow mien, the servings are king sized and super satisfying. Can’t decide on one and want to split your starch? Try two different noodles or two different kinds of rice.
What’s good? The Shanghai egg noodle, udon, manapua, and the fried saimin. Actually, everything is good. The food is hot and there is plenty of it so get your noodle on.
Brick Oven Pizza
There are two great things about Brick Oven Pizza. First, it’s pizza. And this pizza is said to be the best pizza on the island — comfort food for the soul. No matter what you’re in the mood for, try the garlic bread with cheese, it is oozing with yummy.
And if that isn’t enough, how about a Long Island Iced Tea for $6? With 2 to 6 p.m. Happy Hours, $5 cocktails, $10 draft pitchers are the perfect pairing to the traditional pizza pie.
Kapolei Golf Club restaurant
The first thing you’ll notice about this golf course restaurant is that this is no ordinary 19th puka.
With massive, floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the verdant vistas of the golf course, the setting is more akin to a restaurant at a high-end, Trump Tower sort of place or a cheeky-meeky new resort condo. And the food is just as impressive.
Serving up breakfast and lunch 7 days a week, specialties of the house include the Kapolei Golf Course fried rice for breakfast, with kiawe smoke pork belly, bacon, Portuguese sausage, garlic, carrots, onions, peas and oyster sauce. The Cobb chopped salad is a lunch favorite, with turkey breast, ham bacon, Roma tomatoes, avocado, Parmesan cheese and hearts of Romaine. And if you’re really Jonesing for something really out of this world delicious, you’ll want to try the salt and pepper crispy fried pork chop.
The Kapolei Golf Club
Kapolei Chinese Restaurant has several banquet areas for functions and special occasions. From pupu menus to Hawaiian style banquets, the food is enjoyed in a pristine setting.
Cupcakes & Things
Colorful and scrumptious, these nostalgic little treats are an artform at Cupcakes & Things in Kapolei. Whether you’re buying one or dozens, these cupcakes are not only cheerful to look at, they are out-of-this-world delicious.
Chocolate lovers can’t get enough of the mocha fudge, chocolate marble fudge, German chocolate, chocolate sundae or chocolate coconut cream. But if you’re up for trying something new, the snickerdoodle with cream cheese frosting is delightful, as is the strawberry shortcake.
In addition to cupcakes, return customers rave about the orange cranberry scones, the shortbread cookies, the butter mochi and the pineapple upside down cake.
The bakery also has an ono selection of pies, cakes, and chocolate dipped strawberries. There is nothing fast-food about Cupcakes & Things. The menu here is all homemade goodness, just like your mom used to make.
