Stephen Yuen had little choice but to change his menu and business name when No. 1 moved in down the block.
World of Noodles, formerly Local Boy Restaurant, along Kuhio Highway in Lihu’e, has found acceptance especially for its chow fun, which Yuen calls “spectacular.”
Yuen, owner and manager, said not many restaurants on the island offer chow fun.
House of Noodles is doing better during both lunch and dinner hours than Local Boy did, and lunch is the busiest time, he said.
A Honolulu factory provides the noodles.
The menu includes a house noodle that can be chow mein or chow fun, with shrimp, mahimahi and mixed vegetables, as well as vegetarian chow mein or chow fun, a Hawaiian offering including kalua pig and cabbage with either chow mein or chow fun, crispy wonton mein, spaghetti, and more.
Ramen with soup offerings include the house variety, with fried shrimp and mahimahi, won ton soup and won ton mein, mundo soup, and side orders including barbecue chicken, teriyaki beef, kalbi ribs, crisp wonton, crisp mundo, kim chee, bean sprouts, and more.
David Kobayashi is the assistant manager. There are eight employees. The restaurant is open from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. seven days a week.
Catering is available. While Yuen said some people order party platters to go, he is hoping to get some catering work associated with high-school graduation parties or Mother’s Day.
