Off Track: Best crispy gau gee: Our Top 5

August 23, 2020

From the Frolic Hawaii website

Bring a pan of crispy gau gee to a potluck and it’s a guaranteed hit. It’s one of those Hawaii-only Chinese restaurant staples that you’re unlikely to find outside of the 50th state. The wrapper has an irresistible crunch with a savory, meaty filling that is more substantial than a won ton. Crispy gau gee has earned its place in the pantheon of classic local pupu, right up there with lumpia, poke, smoke meat, and boiled peanuts.

Studies show that our strongest food connections are usually established during our first encounter. In turn, those first impressions become the benchmark for foods we eat later in life. For many of us in Hawaii, our benchmark for crispy gau gee is often tied to our neighborhood Chinese restaurant. While some have faded into the pages of history, many are still going strong.
