Chicken & Brisket – Honolulu, HI

A new fried chicken place in Kalihi? Okay, yes I am there. Always happy to give business to a new local start-up, especially during such a tumultuous time. No question about what they serve here, Chicken and Brisket – it’s in the title! And let me tell you, boy am I glad I ordered. You can either order delivery or curb side pick-up through their website. I don’t know if the deal is still going but the first order you put in, you get a discount from their online ordering service!

When you order curbside pick-up, they send you an email with the ETA on how long your order will take. Then you will receive a text from the restaurant with directions on where to park and to text the color and make of your vehicle and they will bring it out to you! They are actually using the kitchen of another bar and grill so they don’t have a storefront for you to go pick-up your food right now. What a breeze! Let’s take a look at the food!

Sweet Hawaiian Chili Chicken – Very Spicy & Sweet | $15.00
Breaded & Deep Fried Chicken Thighs Tossed in Sweet Hawaiian Chili Sauce with Choice of Dipping Sauce.

Okay they’ve changed some names and prices on their menu but I posted the new names and prices. This chicken was GOOD. The chicken is fried to perfection and the skin is so light and crisp. The seasoning is great and I love how they just throw the fried chicken skins in too. They forgot my dipping sauce but it’s okay, the chicken is so good on its own anyway!

Spicy Brisket Chili Bowl | $10.00
Spicy. House brisket chili, steamed rice, sour cream, house cheese sauce, onions and jalapenos.

Not bad, not great. I think it’s sweeter than I would like but I don’t know, maybe I am just biased towards Zippy’s chili. I wouldn’t order this again.

Loaded Fries | $9.00
Sour cream, green onions, house cheese sauce and bacon.

Good, it was thoroughly enjoyed. Was it worth $9? Eh…I’m not big on fries so I wouldn’t say it is. Can I just go Teddy’s and get cheesy tots? Hahaha

Brisket Fried Noodles | $12.00
Wok Fried Noodles with Brisket, Char Siu, Kamaboko, Cabbage, Onions, Green Onions & Carrots.

Okay, I don’t know if I have proclaimed this before but I am a huge fan of noodles. I can’t resist getting noodles. I didn’t resist getting these noodles. I was so excited. Was it good? Well…sorry to say it was just basic to me so I didn’t think it was worth the $12. It wasn’t like the brisket in it was that good…in fact, it was like full of the hard pieces that I am not a fan of.

Okay I talked up this place but realized I didn’t rate 3 out of 4 items that great but the chicken for sure is GOOD. Go order that at least!

    My boss was just raving about Diamond Head Market’s fried saimin. He said it was the best so brought us bento and fried noodles from there this week (so lucky!). It was ok
    My favorite is still Sugoi’s yaki soba!

    Oh, I could gobble up the fried chicken skin pieces like potato chips! Bummer about no sauce. Interesting how fried noodles seem like such a simple dish with simple ingredients, but come out differently depending on who cooks it.

    Jalna – a fellow noodle lover! Let me know where all the good noodle eats are! I’m still looking for the best fried saimin…haha

    Kat – What a waste ya! It’s okay, I know where to go to get super ono brisket.

    Vicki – Ahhh…good to hear this. Like I’ve tried Diamond Head Market a few times and I was never impressed by their food. Okay, Sugoi’s…I might have to give them another try. I used to think they charged rip off prices for noodles…but maybe my palate was less refined and wallet a bit smaller back then lol

    Arlene – Haha it’s okay about the sauce! It was just a spicy ranch sauce, but the chicken already has like their spicy sweet sauce on top. Oh was so good…please go try! You’re right! There doesn’t seem to be a consistent fried noodles dish yeah? Same thing with kimchee fried rice, everyone makes it so different!
