Mei Sum

65 N. Pauahi St.
Honolulu, Oahu, HI, 96817, United States
TEL: (808) 531-3268

This Hong Kong-style dim sum restaurant on a corner of Honolulu’s Chinatown isn’t fancy, with an aqua awning and doors, white-clothed tables bathed in fluorescent lights, and a fleet of roving dim sum carts piled high with covered plates and bamboo steamers. Instead, all of the details are in th eextensive picture menu, which shows a wide variety of dumplings, pastries and Chinese small plates, including braised chicken feet, dried scallop dumplings, shrimp pork hash (aka siu mai), and egg custard tarts.

Insider Tip:

Mei Sum is one block from the Hawaii Theatre Centre, which started with vaudeville in 1922 and now features performances like Macbeth.
