Chun Wah Kam
Wah Kam Chun came to Hawaii with an idea and a lot of ambition, but little else. After years of hard work, he opened the first Chun Wah Kam Noodle Factory in 1942 located in Honolulu’s Chinatown. His goal was to provide noodle products to restaurants and markets all across Hawaii. His philosophy for cooking was simple: products made-from-scratch and from locally sourced ingredients make better food.
As his business expanded, Wah Kam needed more space, and, during the 60’s he moved his shop to McNeil Street in Kalihi. Then, in 1979, the noodle factory was moved down the street to its present location at 505 Kalihi Street, where all of their noodle products are still made fresh everyday.
In 1988, Wah Kam’s son, Nelson, came up with the idea to expand the company’s menu and sell manapua, plate lunches, and dim sum items. Sticking to Wah Kam’s founding philosophy on food, they made it a point to be especially meticulous with what they make and how they make it. As a prime example, their family recipe for their Baked Manapua bread took 10 years to perfect! The result has become one of their signature items.
This location has been feeding local families since 1993! From catering and plate lunches, to manapua and dim sum, stop by, pull a number, and let them know how they can take care of you.
