Legend Seafood Restaurant Restaurant Review

: People who come to Honolulu looking for seafood restaurants often forget that there are great Asian seafood restaurants as well as Western. Legend is one of the best, although it's also one of those Hong Kong-style restaurants that put hundreds of diners in a single oversized room, with a resulting noise level of a small factory. We'd go early in the day for dim sum here because the rolling cart ladies bring dozens of varieties, including shark fin dumpling in soup, stuffed with mushrooms and noodles, with a flavor as deep as the ocean. We're also addicted to the ming har gok (which look like fried wonton, filled with shrimp), and the stuffed green peppers and eggplant, cooked tableside at a rolling gas grill. There's a huge variety of seafood at dinner, including whole steamed fish, crab and lobster, but dim sum, served every day until 2 p.m., would be our first choice.
