Maui local eats

Headed to Maui in Oct, would love to avoid the tourist places and hit the local faves. Looking for suggestions in every price range for places locals go to celebrate b-days, anniversaries, good surfing weather and Tuesdays. Any type of cuisine is fine. Staying in Kaanapali. Thanks!

    I like the gazebo for breakfast in Napili...Plantation House at Kapalua Golf Course for breakfast, lunch or dinner..and Sansei for sushi for the killer happy hour.
    Kimo's or Hula Grill is great for drinks
    I think it will be quite difficult to avoid tourist places all together in Maui..especially in Kaanapali.

      Beach Chick,

      I agree completely. The only hope that one would have on "avoiding tourist" spots would be to dine only in Wailuku, and do not venture out anyplace else.

      I do second The Gazebo, and also plan on doing Plantation House (was not in existance last trip), plus a few favs., and a few favs., that have changed, since last visit.

      Will report in late Dec, on what we found.

        Plantation House for breakfast is one of those gems in Maui that not many people think to go to except if you are playing golf..
        Great prices, food and views..love the ahi or salmon benedict..
        Love Gazebo and since there is always a wait, I just go out and swim and wait for my table..
        Look forward to your report back in December!
        Aloha and Mahalo

          We'll probably hit it for dinner, as we have friends from O`ahu joining us for golf at Kapalua, and they'll likely stay at the Ritz, so we'll look into dining with them, after a round. I'm not sure exactly how we'll do breakfast, as we'll be playing golf at the four close-in courses over the six days. We'll definitely do The Gazebo for one day, but do not know when. As we'll be staying at the Westin at Kā`anapali, and playing those two courses, plus the two Kapalua courses, we'll likely grab something at the hotel on many days. Still, we hope to make it to some of our old favs, and some new spots, as well.

          Mahalo,

            Love the bay and village course at Kapalua..plantation just kicks my butt!
            Always enjoy the Kaanapali north course..if I can shoot bogey to double bogey golf..I'm happy..
            Hula grill is always a good move with feet in the sand having drinks on the beach.

                  Still, we hope to do some serious dining on the property, and I'll report, more quickly, than with my last O`ahu trip.

                    OK, I guess I have a minority report on Plantation House based on one lunch and one dinner. We (the Mrs. and I) thought that the view was fine and the room is nice. However the food and menu seemed like a corporate affair - that is to say uninspired.

                      I think for breakfast the Plantation House is the place to go..ahi benedict for around $11 bucks with the killer views and no wait.

                        I'm sorry to hear that. We felt the same about the previous (five + years ago) venue there, the Anuinui Room. Nice place, with poor service, expensive, unimaginative food and a wine list for someone on a major expense account. I do not hesitate to pay big $'s for great food and wine, but was left feeling fleeced. I had hoped that the Plantation House was doing things right. We'll probably try it, but now I'm not holding out great hopes. Over the year, the Ritz properties have been all over the board, with regards to food and food service. Given the competition on Maui, I'd hoped for better. We'll see.

                        Thanks for the report,

                          The Anuenue Room is within the Ritz Hotel. The Plantation House is at the Plantation course away from the hotel. Presently there is still no restaurant in the former Anuenue space it is used as a meeting and banquet room.

                            Manomin,

                            Mahalo for that clarification. I was under the mistaken impression that the Plantation House had "replaced" the Anuenue Room, but must have been mistaken. Not sure how I got so confused - just been too long, since I was on Maui, I guess. Is the Anuenue Room still open IN the hotel?

                            Thanks,

                            Hunt

                              In the above post I mentioned that Anuenue room is now a
                              meeting/banquet room. For the Kapalua W&FF for example they
                              held the trade show in there.

                            The other thing that bugs me is that the original poster wanted to avoid tourist places. I find it hard to believe that many locals go to a place like the Plantation House or the Pineapple Grill.

                            I'd expect to find locals at "A Saigon Cafe" in Wailuku, for example. Better food too.

                              Bill Hunt Aug 25, 2008 09:28 PM

                              I often wonder what the aversion to "tourist" places is. It should be about the food. It can be great in a dive, that only locals might know of, or at a world-class resort. I even started a thread on this subject (seems it was on the NOLA board), because I rate the food, not who is likely to be at the next table. Unless someone is so hung up on finding something that no one else knows of, what is the point?

                              You do make a good *point* though. However, in Phoenix, my hometown now, I am likely to be dining based on the food, and some of the spots might well be typified as "tourist," as they are highly rated by many publications and are hardly secrets to anyone, who knows good food. Still, if the other diners behave themselves, I do not care if they live down the street, or across the nation, or an ocean or two. It should be about the food, at least in my book.

                              Though I may have gotten the thread off-topic a bit, and apologize for doing so, I'm also trying to find the great dining on Maui now, with a Dec trip coming up.

                              Sorry if I got tangential,

                                  Plantation House is our favorite place for dinner on Maui based on food, ambiance and views and we like breakfast there better than dinner.

                                  Don't miss the Gazebo and/or Sea House in Napili for breakfast. We also love the Pioneer Inn and Sunrise Cafe in Lahaina.

                                  Local places we like are Sam Sato’s, Star Noodle, Honokowai Okazuya, Nagasako Okazuya, Stella Blue, Da Kitchen, A Saigon Cafe, Mama's Ribs & Rotisserie, Lulu's, Fish Market Maui & Honolua Store.

                                  Bistro Cassanova is great too. A great place to hit before heading to the Airport.

                                    In our case(s), we got the rounds in, just as the preps were being completed for the MB at the Plantation Course. It was in great shape, and I just imagined all of the bleachers filled with MY adoring fans, as I either hit into them, or came up short in a hazard...

                                    At least the upcoming event did not negatively impact on the dining, though on the second trip, the Banyan Tree restaurant at the Ritz was closed for renovations. Missed them, but then made up for their absence from my list.

                                    I think the aversion is that tourist places have a reputation of being be overly priced and lacking in service since they do not rely on returning clientele. That is certainly true in most metropolitan areas; however, places like Maui (and other isolated areas) can be the exception, since the plethora of higher end restaurants wouldn't survive without tourists. Getting listed in the guidebooks is essential to them.

                        Longhei's has a excellent breakfast, I really enjoy their coffee and sweet buns while watching the foot traffic outside, totally relaxing. Kimo's has a good burger. Also, you should look for some Masalada, fresh Hawaiian donuts, usually available in the afternoon but, you'll have to go looking for them. Ask your conciere, they'll know where to send you. Whatever you do, don't rely on the food critic on cable out there.

                  I wrote this post last year but it still holds true. Don't miss this place. You can do a search and see what the natives think.
                  _________________________________________________________________
                  We were in Maui a couple of years ago and drove inland, to Paia, to eat at a well-known restaurant which happened to be closed. We were disappointed and hungry but explored the few shops in the area. We heard the owner of one of the stores tell her salesperson she was going around the corner for lunch. We asked the girl what was around the corner. She sent us to a nondescript, unadvertised, hole in the wall place with mismatched chairs and a limited menu. BUT, wow! The entire menu consisted of crepes with maybe 8 different fillings, savory or sweet and about as many different smoothies, all made with fresh local ingredients. I had a ratatouille crepe and a papaya,mango, ginger smoothie. One of the best and most satisfying meals I've ever had. That meal was so good we drove the 40 miles from our hotel to eat the same meal the next day. The owner was a young Frenchman married to a local Islander.

                  Will someone please tell me the name of this place, if it's still there and why it isn't touted all over the board?

                  I found out it's called Cafe des Amis and it's on the Hana Hwy at Paia. 42 Baldwin Rd
                  Phone: 579-6323.
                  They have since expanded their menu and people wait in line to eat here at night.
                  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

                    I am headed to Maui in the next couple weeks and will post when I get back, as I am going to try some new places. However, I have been there many times and like to eat local food. My parents are from Hawaii, so we like to eat local food whenever we are there. We eat lunch out and since we stay in a condo, we get take-out and eat in for dinner. Probably not places that you want to go celebrate special occassions, but more for everyday eating. Here are some of the places that we like its not gourmet, but its good:

                    Da Kitchen - awesome teriyaki beef sticks and Hawaiian plate. Their poi and lomi are really good.

                    Gazebo - Very good. We love their fried rice. We usually go there in the afternoon when there is no line, buy the fried rice, take it back to the condo and eat it for a couple days.

                    Matsu - Excellent Japanese food (161 Alamaha St, Kahului). Everything they have is really good. You can either eat in or take out. There noodles are great. Its a small, whole in the wall place, but a lot of locals eat there. They open early, like around 10:30, so its great to go to on the way to the airport.

                    TJ's Warehouse - 876 Alua St in Wailuku. This is a market that sells all kinds of things and its in a real industrial area. They have great take-out choices and awesome miso butterfish. They have good things to take with you on the airplane.

                    Homemaid Bakery - 1005 Lower Main St, Wailuku. They have good baked goods including manju and malasadas. But the malasadas sell out early.

                    Pukalani Superette - 15 Makawao Ave. This is a market that is upcountry in Pukalani. They have great take-out and premade foods. Go early.

                    Paia Fish Market - 110 Hana Highway, Paia. This place has great fish that you can eat there or take-out. It comes mostly fried, but you can have it grilled as well. The fish and chips are great and my dad likes the grilled Ono. Their portions are huge.

                    Wei-wei BBQ & Noodle House - 55 Pukalani St. This place is awesome and they have a huge menu. They have take out and order off the menu. Their eggplant is out of this world. They have all kinds of noodles and bbq meats.

                    Hanafuda Saimin - 1279 Kihei Road, Kihei, I think there is another one on Dairy Road in Kahului. They have good saimin with a lot of sides.

                    Alexander's Fish and Chips - They is one in Kihei and one at the Queen K mall. I ate at the one at the mall. Their fish and chips are really good, but their fried calamari was excellent.

                    Kanaapali Beach Hotel - Went there for brunch on Sunday and they have a really big spread. I don't think it was super expensive, but the food was good. A lot of variety. I recommend making reservations in advance as its very popular.

                    Genki Sushi - If you are looking for some decent sushi and want to have fun with it, go to Genki. Its not high end liked Sansei, but its pretty good and they have some different things. Its conveyor belt style and not too expensive.

                    Tasaka Guri Guri - If you are near the Maui Mall (and even if you aren't) you've gotta try the Guri Guri. It is kind of like gelato, but different. Its really hard to explain, but its so good. This is the only place you can get it outside of Japan, I think. It costs less than $1 for two scoops. You will be addicted once you eat it. Its located behind Long's in the Maui Mall.

                    Long's drugs - They carry some food stuff. They have good sushi (hawaii people like to inari (cone sushi) and norimaki and they carry it at Longs). You have to go early to get it. They also have a good california roll. Long's also carries a variety of local baked goods and fruits and vegetables.

                    I hope this helps.

                              Years ago we were on Maui for a friends wedding. We ate at a restaurant that located a bit inland near the sugar cane fields. It had originally started up to feed the field workers of the area and then developed into a full blown restaurant. It was so good and I have had no luck remembering of finding the name. It was in white house like
                              building and I just remember having an incredible lunch. We stayed in the Kihei area and I just remember it was inland from there... Thanks for the help.

                                I think you're talking about Bev Gannon's place, the Hali'imaile General Store. Best food on the island, IMO.

                              No one seems to have mentioned Sam Sato's in Wailuku. We hit them once or twice every year = very very local!

                              I could not locate a website for them but Frommer's has all the details http://www.frommers.com/destinations/...

                                We just returned from Maui last weekend (sigh.) Hits and misses:
                                HITS
                                1) Pineapple Grill--I know one poster here didn't like it, but I was very happy with it. Ordered 3 apps--the Thai coconut lobster bisque, the lobster dumplings, and the seared ahi with a pistachio crust. I know there sound frue frue, but they were all quite delicious. Least favorite was the lobster dumplings. The soup was heavenly. Entree was a Hawaiian fish called Monchong, a slightly fattier, moist fish. Came with a porcini dusted crust with lobster/tarragon sauce. Very good. Served with asparagus and mashed potatoes. Best Mai Tai I had in Maui--strong with a little guava juice to give it "body". Kids menu mac and cheese was also very tasty. Very very good service from the busboy who gave us plastic cups with lids for the kids without being asked to the hostess and waiter.

                                2) Roy's Kahana--I know this place gets knocked too, but our meal was enjoyable. We had the ono for entree and Asian baby back ribs which were super meaty as an appy. I happen to love their chocolate souffle, too. My son projectile vomited at the end of the meal and the manager was extremely helpful in aiding with cleanup and getting us out of there fast.

                                3) Maui Tacos--I like the fish tacos here b/c they're well-seasoned and the fish doesn't taste bland. They also have interesting salsas.
                                4) Honolua Store for sandwiches--Reasonably priced, fresh food walkable from the Ritz.

                                So/so or Misses:
                                1) Sansei--I know, I know, I messed up. We ordered sushi and drinks only, and didn't try any of the specials. Couldn't convince the hubby to do something new. It's like a cattle call in there in the first 1/2 hour when it's 25% off. Our waiter was superb though--very patient and attentive. Sushi was unremarkable except for the otoro. Better sushi here in LA.

                                2) Maalaea Grill--very nice view, average food. Had the fish tacos. Wanted to go to Maalaea Waterfront but couldn't seem to find it.

                                3) China Boat--on of only a few Chinese restaurants in this area. Located in Napili. Sullen service. The Szechuan beef was too sweet, but the string beans with pork and the combo lo mein were all right.

                                4) Pizza Paradiso in Napili--went here for the kids. Pizza and chicken souvlaki were definitely mediocre. Curious about the Mexican place in the same strip mall (don't know the name.)

                                Maybe this will help you. We stayed in Kapalua, so we couldn't go that far with the kids. I would definitely return to Pineapple Grill.

                                  Sam Sato's for saimin, Hana Fuda (2 locations, one in Kihei one in Kahalui, Kihei one is my favorite). Also, there is another Vietnamese restaruant related/similar to A Saigon Cafe in the mini mall across the street from Hanafuda in Kihei.
                                  Also, how about the that deli up in Kaanapali, hard to spell name with takeout plate lunch? I think Hanafuda is better than Da Kitchen, lighter, not that plate lunch is ever that light...

                                    Thanks so much for all the great suggestions. We had a lot of good meals, hits and misses follow:
                                    HITS:
                                    Mala International: They have this great comp app, edamame dip with roasted salsa. Very simple but very good. I am going to try to make it myself. Shared the hummos/olive/feta dip app. The feta dip and the Tzatziki were both great. The rest of the dips were good. I also got a beet and local goat cheese salad. There were too many beets and the were likely canned but the goat cheese was great. I was stuffed from the apps anyway. SO got the filet which along with the mashers that made him moan.

                                    Pineapple Grill -- Got the cheese plate which was pretty standard manchango, some of the same local goat cheese we ate at Mala and a triple cream brie. The hit was the subtle blue. I got the Lemon Porcini Dusted Hawaiian Monchong which was perfectly cooked but underseasoned. The SO got the filet again. The brandy peppercorn sauce elevated it up a level. GREAT service!!!

                                    Paia Fish Market -- Got the ono fish salad, I know fish salad is not very exciting but the fish was perfectly seasoned and cooked perfectly. SO got the Ahi sandwich and fries. All perfectly seasoned and cooked.

                                    Honokawai Okazuya -- I got the special the lemon mahi mahi with capers. SO got the Kung Pao Chicken. I was considering the Kung Pao and should have gotten it -- the mahi mahi was good but not my fave flavor combo, I was eating off the SOs plate all night.

                                    Misses
                                    Longboards -- terrible, rude service and mediocre food.

                                    Tiki Lounge -- wanted to love this place, real local hang out, and would definitely get drinks there but the burger, fries and chili dog were only okay.

                                    Sansei -- Only good things we ate was the sushi special and the apple tart for dessert. Also, terrible pretentious service.

                                    Maui tacos -- Considering I live in taco cart central (Austin, TX) I would say I am spoiled. The fish tacos had almost no flavor but I would have drank the pineapple salsa as a soup. SO felt the same way about the meat tacos and the special salsa.

                                          Tasty Crust is a reliable, no frills restaurant. Has a "Cheers" type atmosphere to me. We hit it every Saturday after the Swap Meet.

                                              Swap Meet is in Kahului every Saturday morning. Not near as big, but lots of good local fruits, vegetables. Held at the Maui Community College campus. http://www.mauiexposition.com/PhotoGa...

                                          Honolua Store is a great place for a reasonably priced lunch. Always plenty of food for the price. Their hamburger is one of the best ones on the island
