I first read about Zaney's on Ono Kine Grindz' blog a while back and made note of it as a "place to try".
Today my friend, Wen and I went to check it out.
It is located just on the outskirts of Chinatown on Nuuanu Avenue. There is a pay-parking lot right across the street from the restaurant and also some on-street metered parking.
Their signature dish is the garlic fried chicken. The chicken is deep fried then tossed in a garlicky-shoyu (soy sauce) sauce. They also have other entrees too-- some change daily. The plates come in mini, regular, 2-choice and 3-choice (for the really hungry).
We tried the salad with garlic fried chicken plate for US$5.50. A bed of romaine lettuce drizzled with a creamy oriental dressing then topped with the sweet, salty and juicy garlic fried chicken....OMG...so ono!
The portion is just right and the chicken stays crispy until the very end. If you go to Chinatown, be sure to check this place out.
1170 Nuuanu Avenue Suite 102
