Our kitchen composts as part of Santa Cruz’s local compost program, our organic tofu is made locally just for us, and our vegetables are sourced locally from organic farms on the Central Coast of California.

Organic Greens from Organic Farms

Charlie Hong Kong is located close to the organic farms on the central coast of California, that provide the abundance of organic greens we serve in all our Signature Bowls. Freshly harvested local organic produce is delivered early in the morning. By 6:30 am, our head cook begins the daily chopping and preparing of 500 pounds of organic produce. Sauces are prepared. Whole ginger and onion charred over open flame to add to the huge pot of bone broth, to make our healing chicken soup. Meats braised for a slow roast in the oven.  All this done, in the 600 sq. feet re-purposed 1950’s, ice cream stand. A covered patio, offers community dining. Eat at the restaurant, or take away.
