Forsyth Family Dining Guide: HakkaChow – Asian Eats

Winston-Salem is home to many Asian eateries, but HakkaChow remains one of the Triad’s most beloved spots for sushi, gyoza and cocktails. HakkaChow’s location and stylish dining room help provide patrons with an elevated Asian cuisine experience. Perfect for a date night or a casual business lunch, HakkaChow’s versatile lunch, dinner, sushi and cocktail menus keep customers coming back meal after meal.

Celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year, HakkaChow was created by the parents of Owner Jonathan Chung in February 2014. Chung’s parents lived a humble life in Calcutta, India before migrating to Hamburg, Germany to improve their quality of life. They opened and operated two restaurants in Hamburg for 25 years before moving to the United States where Chung’s brothers also migrated to live a better life.

Restaurant ownership runs deep in Chung’s family. His brothers Freddy Lee and Terry Lee own local restaurants Bernardin’s Fine Dining, Bleu Restaurant and Bar, and Cibo Trattoria. Additionally, his brother Lucas was the original owner of local favorite Szechuan Palace. Over the last 10 years, Triad locals and out-of-town visitors have established HakkaChow as their go-to night-out haunt, as well as their take-out option of choice for family dinners.

Customers take advantage of HakkaChow’s daily specials. While closed on Mondays, Tuesdays are notorious for $2 off Moscow mules. Wednesdays are known for $2 off mojitos, while Thursdays offer half-price wines by the glass. Looking to enjoy the weekend at HakkaChow? Fill up on $2 off draft beer and $1.50 off bottled beer on Fridays and Saturdays. Keep your “Sunday scaries” at bay with $6 mimosas and bloody Marys, half-price flavored sake by the glass and buy-one-get-one half-price sushi.

It goes without saying that HakkaChow’s extensive offering of delicious appetizers makes it difficult to save room in your stomach for sushi. Choose between delicious dishes such as kimchi cheese fries, Kobe beef dumplings, or light and simple edamame to start off your meal. Diners can also order the striking HakkaChow’s Sushi Tower layered with sushi rice, spicy tuna, crab salad and avocado to share. With a vast selection of nigiri and sashimi, adventurous sushi lovers can also take advantage of the extensive list of classic and specialty maki options, in addition to poke bowls that have risen in popularity. Of course, Asian fusion favorites without fish are menu staples as well, such as pad thai, General Tso chicken and HakkaChow’s fantastic fried rice entrée.


With the help of Chung, his staff and the wonderful chefs, HakkaChow’s chic interior, dining experience and service are exceptional from start to finish. Grab a cocktail at the restaurant’s beautiful bar, or enjoy your meal with family and friends on the patio during warmer months.
