Sing Cheong Yuan Bakery - 1027 Maunakea Street, Chinatown, Honolulu Sing Cheong Yuan Bakery - 1027 Maunakea Street, Chinatown, Honolulu, Gao, Candied Fruits, Candied Brittle1027 Maunakea Street was listed for sale a little over a year ago by my partner and me. Rather than securing a buyer, a promising tenant was found. Sing Cheong Yuan Bakery leased the building, renovated it and opened this popular Chinese bakery and candy shop.

As you can see by this photo, it is a highly trafficked street (by foot & car). Their location is directly across the entrance & exit of the Maunakea Street Municipal Parking Lot so there is lots of convenient and affordable parking. Sing Cheong Yuan Bakery - 1027 Maunakea Street, Chinatown, Honolulu Gao, Candied Fruits, Candied BrittleI usually stop by and pick up some candied fruits or brittle whenever I'm visiting Chinatown. They have candied strawberries, lotus root, coconut, pineapple, melon, kumquat, carrot & some others. It is sold by weight and runs just a little under $7 a pound. My favorites are the kumquats, strawberries, lotus root and melon! They make great treats and they are REAL FRUITS!
