Golden City

August 21, 2009 § 16 Comments

I always have a lot of fun sharing meals with fellow food blogger friends, especially when they are Kirk and Cathy of mmm-yoso, Dennis of A Radiused Corner, and Sawyer of Mother May I. Great company and trying new dishes, how good is that? On our most recent outing, we ended up at Golden City.

Golden City has been around for decades and has gone through several owners in that time. But they seem to always do well enough to keep the patrons coming back.  Kirk has done quite a few reviews since the new owners took over back in 2006. You can read about them here, here, here, and here. And Kirbie of Kirbie Cravings recently reviewed GC’s late night menu here.

Since there’s been so many write-ups on GC, I won’t go into details and just show what we ate.


Whew, boy was that a lot of food?  We certainly ate well that day!  The Mister and I have been back there since and one of our new favorite dishes is the Squid in Shrimp Sauce (sorry, no picture). We also tried the Eggplant in Spicy Garlic Sauce but the sauce was a little too sweet for my taste. Not bad, but I probably wouldn’t order it again unless someone wanted to have it.

The Mister and I are planning on coming back soon for dinner. He hasn’t had Peking Duck in a very long time so we’ll definitely be having that!

Have a terrific Aloha Friday and fantastic weekend!

    Hey CAB – I had a blast! Hopefully, we’ll be able to do this again! BTW, happy Statehood Day!

    • CAB says:

      Hi Kirk! Happy Statehood Day to you too! I completely forgot it’s the 50th anniversary. I know it’s a touchy subject for some. For us, it’s still an Aloha Friday and no work ’til Monday!

  • kirbie says:

    Thanks for the link! I’ve been looking forward to your post on Golden City. How fun to be able to enjoy good food with such good company! The duck looks delicious. I’ll have to get that next time.

    • CAB says:

      Hi Kirbie! I’ve been thinking about that Peking Duck ever since we had it. The skin was really crispy and very good for the price. I liked how they made the rest of the duck into lettuce wraps.

  • Dennis says:

    Hi CAB, that was some good food and great company! I never thought I’d be having Peking Duck for lunch.. Great pics btw!

    • CAB says:

      Hey Dennis! I never thought I’d have Peking Duck for lunch either! Leave it to Kirk. Thanks on the pics. Bet they look very much like yours, hehe.

      • Cathy says:

        That’s what I was thinking. Maybe we can put 360° photos of each dish.

        It was fun and excellent food. Plus the Orowheat Outlet and foot massage afterwards. A perfect little mall.

  • CAB says:

    Hey Cathy! Ooo, I bet we can get a panoramic shot of the entire table!

    It was really good, wasn’t it? That cheese danish I brought back to work was gone in a matter of a few minutes!

    Foot massage, we’re still waiting for a report on that from Sawyer. What say you, Sawyer???

  • sawyer says:

    hahaha. the massage was an hour long for 20 bucks, and was more of a full body massage while you soaked your feet in some chinese herb concoction. a good way to relax while “workin off” the food coma haha =p wish i had checked out that outlet after tho.

    i thought it was a good massage..only my second time getting a prof. massage though, so i’m no expert. still, 20 bucks is pretty cheap.

    • CAB says:

      Wow, that sounds like a great deal for $20. I’ve only had a few massages but I’ve enjoyed them. I just might have to check them out next time.

      That outlet is a good deal if you’re going to eat the stuff fairly quickly. I got hamburger buns and cheese danish for under $4.

      • Dennis says:

        Hi CAB, Sawyer.. So where was this place? I need a food massage (don’t we all? haha).

        • CAB says:

          Dennis, you mean you didn’t see that 8 ft banner hanging in front of the store front? Um, a food massage may cost you more. hehe! It’s in the same mall as Golden City, just a couple of doors down from the Bakery Outlet.

  • POOOOOORK BELLYYYYY… *droooooool*
