This popular industrial-style, plate-lunch haven in the trendy Ward Centre is busier than ever, with an expanded concept that includes dinner and breakfast service. You'll get excellent home-style cooking (it's owned by chef Russell Siu, of 3660 on the Rise) served on Styrofoam plates, in a warehouse ambience, at budget prices. The menu, which changes every 3 to 4 months, includes a seared ahi sandwich with tobiko (flying-fish roe) aioli, sandwiches, beef stew, five-spice shoyu chicken, the very popular meatloaf, and other multi-ethnic entrees. Tip: If they're serving brownies, buy two; their brownies are "da' best in da' islands."
