Waimalu Chop Suey Chinese restaurant, in Waimalu Shopping Center will serve its last meals under its 49-year-long family ownership tomorrow. After service, new owners will take over, though they will keep the name.
Randy Yim owns the restaurant with his older brother Dennis and their mother Violet. The restaurant, famous for its “bambucha” gau gee, was established by their father Mun Cho Yim, who worked in the restaurant until the day he died seven years ago.
“We’re retiring,” Randy Yim said. “I hope the new owners continue the way we did business … I want people to remember what we were.”
