You may already visit your neighborhood 7-Eleven Hawai‘i for manapua or pork hash while on-the-go, but we just made great-tasting dim sum even more convenient! Your favorites like half moon and sticky rice are now available for purchase at 65 locations across O‘ahu, Kaua‘i, Maui, and Hawai‘i Island. Delivery and pickup also available at select locations.
We knew offering dim sum 365 days a year would not be easy, and the delicate, hand-crafted nature of these products made would make this an incredibly challenging undertaking. Our team decided that partnering with a reputable dim sum restaurant would be the best way to offer consistent and high-quality products for our customers.
The journey started in 2020, when our food commissary partner, Warabeya USA, and our fresh food team members got to work researching the most popular dim sum restaurants on O‘ahu. The team compared information such as product ingredients, menus, and online reviews from previous customers. When the team narrowed down the shortlist to 6 restaurants, they conducted market research and ate the products side-by-side. They then ranked products based on their tastes, texture, and durability. Ultimately, Yung Yee Kee Dim Sum stood out because of their tasty Chiu Chow style half moon and their delicious fillings.
Yung Yee Kee Dim Sum opened on Kapiolani Boulevard in February of 2020. Despite opening right before one of the most challenging years for small businesses, Yung Yee Kee Dim Sum was built for success. The restaurant receives droves of satisfied reviews online and is touted as one of the best dim sum spots outside of Chinatown. The kitchen is led by 30-year veteran of Chinatown’s Legend Seafood Restaurant, Yu Kit Rong. The restaurant is also owned and operated by his son, Aaron Lam. “We were thrilled when Yung Yee Kee Dim Sum agreed to partner with us on this project. They are so knowledgeable, and I think people will enjoy the taste of these products,” states Bryce Au, Foodservice Category Manager at 7-Eleven Hawai‘i.
Sticky rice is available hot and ready in our steamers, and you can find the full assortment in our chill cases. If buying the items cold, be sure to heat according to the product label’s instructions. Unlike the manapua and pork hash, these offerings are available for purchase by the tray rather than individual pieces.
