Soft Gau Gee Mein (with cake noodles) at Golden City Restaurant

Golden City is a small restaurant in Kalihi on North School Street near Houghtailing that makes a delicious soft gau gee mein. My daughter and I get a craving for this particular dish every so often. We order it with cake noodles. The extra dollar is well worth it. The cake noodles are pan fried so that it is crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. Yummy! It is served with a large portion of soft gau gee (ground meat wrapped in large won ton skin), some char siu and plenty of healthy vegetables including broccoli, choi sum (leafy green vegetable with hearty stem), bamboo shoots, mushrooms, carrots and onions. The topping is cooked to perfection to make a gravy dish and poured over the cake noodles. A large plate of this costs $7.60. This is a great lunch or even dinner. Golden City serves a variety of Chinese dishes but this is one of my favorites. The place is open for lunch and dinner, you can do takeout too. The parking lot gets packed during lunch so try to avoid the noon rush. Please try this dish. You won’t regret it.
