Awesome eats this Friday: Tamales by Wang Chung’s


We’re ringing in the Year of the Rooster with a special treat from our favorite neighborhood karaoke bar, Waikiki’s Wang Chung’s. Chef Randy Sanchez, aka @mexicanrandyhi on Instagram, is making his famous chicken tamales for a special Awesome eats downtown pop-up lunch this Friday.

The piping hot bundle is wrapped in corn husks, the authentic way, and is filled with shredded chicken and fresh masa. To complete the meal Sanchez is adding his homemade salsa (mild), flavor-packed Mexican rice and pinto beans plus a fortune cookie.

Since Awesome eats has been selling out, we recommend you pre-order to guarantee your Chinese New Year Mexican chicken treats. Or you can take your chances and come to the corner of Bishop and King streets downtown this Friday between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
