STORY BY: NICOLE MONTON In the heart of Moiliili on Isenberg Street sits Maple Garden Restaurant, where you’ll fall in love with authentic Northern Chinese cuisine. With lots to choose from on the extensive menu, Maple Garden’s offerings are the perfect way to enjoy family-style dining while relaxing at home. Ideal for sharing, all a la carte items pack a ton of flavor into conventional fare. A Maple Garden favorite, the Salt and Pepper Pork Chops ($12.50) are the perfect pupu for sharing or alongside a bed of rice as a DIY plate lunch; and fans of poultry can look forward to a full order of Roast Duck ($25) with crispy skin and tender meat.
