Local Grub on Maui

Staying in Ka'anapali next month and want to try some local fare. I'm thinking Kalua pork, lomi salmon, loco moco and pretty much anything that comes with macaroni salad. We're traveling with kids and are thinking this might be perfect for take away back to the condo.

I've heard Aloha Mixed Plate in Lahaina, which looks like a good "while in Lahaina" option. But I was wondering if there are any good food stands (say in a strip mall next to a 7-11) or otherwise lacking ambiance that might have better food that we can take to go and enjoy on our lanai?

  1. Go up to Kapalua to the Honolua General Store for lunch. More than you can eat plate lunches, different menu almost every day. All with rice and macaroni. Sit out on the covered deck and have lunch with the locals! The grilled burger with pineapple slice is very good...

    1. Try Honokowai Okazuya in a non-descript strip mall in Honokowai. I think it will be exactly what you are looking for. They have great plate lunches with rice and mac salad. Pick up a menu and phone in your to-go orders to take back to the condo. Cash only, or at least it used to be that way.

      1. Rex and Mimi, those sound like perfect suggestions. Thank you.

        1. Honokowai Okazuya in Napili right near Kaanapali has excellent take out, much better than the average plate lunch place. Enjoy!! We also really like Da Kitchen in Kahului. Not sure if they have a Lahaina one, they might, but the Kahului one has always been the best. Their Hawaiian plate is great!

            CJ's Deli and Diner is just off Hwy 30 in Kaanapalli and has the best Kahlua pork I've ever had. The loco moco was also good, and they have a terrific pineapple fried rice. I stopped there for takeout twice last week after the kids were put to bed.
