Ewa Pointe Chinese

On our last evening in Hawaii, we decided to get Chinese food for take out. I did some research online to find the best place and I came across Ewa Pointe Chinese, which was highly recommended. We realized after we had set out to pick it up that the restaurant was further away from our hotel than we were expecting, but a bit of a drive is worth it for good food!

Beef Fried Rice

The first dish that was ordered was beef fried rice. There was an abundance of large chunks of beef all throughout the rice and it had a good flavour and texture. The portion size was large and enough for my whole family.

Spring Rolls

We ordered a side of vegetable spring rolls and they gave us a sweet and sour sauce and a spicy mustard sauce to dip them in. The spicy mustard sauce was yummy and I would recommend asking for a container of it. In hindsight, we probably shouldn’t have ordered these for takeout since they were soggy by the time we were able to eat back at the hotel.

Black Bean Beef on Cake Noodle

For a noodle dish we ordered black bean beef on cake noodles. I’ve never heard of cake noodles before but they are a thin, semi-crispy noodle. I like anything with black bean sauce and this was no exception. The sauce was flavourful and there was lots of beef on top of the dish which is always a plus.

General's Chicken

The general’s chicken is a staple that we always order when we get Chinese. I liked how it was all chicken and there was no filler veggies added! The sauce was tangy and sweet and the chicken was crisp on the outside and juicy on the inside.

Mongolian Beef

The Mongolian beef had thinly sliced pieces of beef mixed in with onions and some very spicy little chills. The beef was tender and the sauce was pleasantly spicy. The spice wasn’t too overwhelming but if you can’t handle spicy dishes I wouldn’t recommend this dish.

Sweet and Sour Pork

My family always insists upon ordering sweet and sour pork at every Chinese restaurant we go to. This version wasn’t the best I’ve had and was my least favourite dish of the night. The sauce was good but some of the pork pieces were a tough and a bit chewy.

Overall everyone enjoyed the food from Ewa Pointe Chinese. Even after we drove back to the hotel and reheated the food, most of it (besides the deep-fried spring rolls) was still tasty. The prices are reasonable and the food is good quality and more authentic than all of the fast food Chinese places in the area.

Recommendation:

Yes, for good and affordable Chinese food in Western Oahu.

    Where in Hawaii are these restaurants?

      Ewa Pointe Chinese is located in a town called Ewa Beach on the Western side of O’ahu. All of the other restaurants I’ve reviewed on my blog from Hawaii are also from O’ahu.
