On our way home from an errand the other day, Mom and I popped into Libby Manapua Shop.
This place has been around for ages and yet it was my first time trying their food, sad yeah?!
We ordered 4 pork manapua (char siu bao), 4 pork hash and a veggie roll to try.
Take-out these days means styrofoam containers, but "way back when" all our take-out orders in Hawaii came in these types of "pie boxes" made of thin cardboard?! I'm happy to see Libby hasn't changed their style.
Their manapua "breading" is so soft and chewy and the inside is filled to a nice "bread-filling" ratio.
The pork hash was also good too, it was filled with so much meat that the outsides were falling off!
The veggie roll was too hard and chewy...meh!
We'll just stick to the manapua and pork hash...we'll be back!
