This Chinatown pastry shop began with custard tarts more than 30 years ago. Now, folks at the second-generation-owned bakery say people start lining up three hours before the doors open at 8 a.m. on Thanksgiving for their dreamy, creamy, still-jiggly pies, which sometimes sell out by 1 p.m.

Quote Unquote: The OG Aquaman Ralph Goto

Japan-born, Mainland-raised Ralph Goto came to Hawai‘i in the ’60s to attend UH Mānoa. He took a job as a lifeguard at the campus pool, which turned into three decades as the head of Honolulu’s Ocean Safety and Lifeguard Services Division. After building the department to one of the best in the world, he retired five years ago but still volunteers with lifeguard and water safety groups—part of the reason he was honored with the Safe Hawai‘i Award this summer.
