Places: Wo Fat
Historic WoFat restaurant in Chinatown (Hotel and Maunakea streets in downtown Honolulu). This building, opened in 1900, was one of the first built after the 1886 Chinatown fire. (The restaurant dates back to 1882.) The building has been the National Register since 1973. For all its history, it’s still a relatively casual place to pop in for a tasty lunch of dim sum.
Honolulu’s Chinatown, dating back over 120 years, is said to be one of the oldest such communities in the country.
