A great little hole-in-the-wall that has been a fixture in Makiki (at the corner of Beretania and Pensacola) is the Dew Drop Inn, which features northern Chinese cuisine among other things. This tiny little restaurant is frequently packed with diners desiring mouth-watering and satisfying Chinese dishes. While some dishes (like the spicy string beans) are not the most authentic, others (like the pork-filled steamed buns) are delightful. Eating here never leaves a significant dent in your wallet either. Dishes range from a miniscule $4 to $10 for seafood delights.
Some favorites on chef Charlie Tsai’s menu include orange chicken, fried rice, and pepper-salted spareribs. Customers who want to see what they’re eating before they order can simply pick up a photo album instead of a menu. Every dish is pictured as if prepared.
Go ahead. Do drop in. Then, leave full and happy.
Closed on Mondays. Open for lunch (11-2:15 p.m.) and dinner (5-10 p.m.).
