Scoping it out: "Inexpensive food doesn't have to be unhealthy," says Eric Yeung, manager and part owner of the Hong Kong Cafe, a 12-table restaurant tucked into the corner of a strip mall in Kapaa. The cafe is a favorite with locals -- it was voted best Chinese food in Kauai in the local newspaper's annual reader write-in poll -- and Yeung, a Hong Kong native, says that more than half of his guests are return customers.
