Food in Hawaii is an experience which is reason enough to come over here. Few places, if any, can offer the wide variety of Pacific foods available here. Maui has attracted cooks from all over the "Rim of Fire" (that is a lot of countries!) and provides a huge choice of foods, which you may never have tried before, and prepared by chefs cooking their national dishes. Discover what it really tastes like, where they make it traditionally, when you enjoy food on Maui.
Honestly, there are so many places to introduce you to that my head swims trying to figure out where to start. You know I am going to break tradition and start with a food truck in Wailuku. If you are visiting Iao or the Wailuku area or even if you just got off the plane, it is well worth the trip up here to old Wailuku. Just come straight up here after getting off the plane, pickup some food (we call it "grinds" here for some reason), before the short drive up into Iao.
Before you even get to Hana Hwy you can cut off to the right avoiding sooo much traffic trying to navigate town heading south or east. It goes fairly quickly through beachside Kahului on up to Wailuku town. Keep heading straight on up on Main st. (Ka'ahumanu Ave mysteriously turns into Main St. after you leave Kahului and you may not notice that "Main" is the street you are on...) and turn north onto N. Market. Just a block down the road is the Iao theater on the right, across the street is a big old Banyan Tree, you'll see the truck under there.
This guide is directed at a specific group of tourist which is open to alternative experiences. Most will appreciate the unusual, and even out of the way, foods and menus which are only found on Maui. They want to discover your eatery, and sample the not-so-common, so list your restaurant here.
The Free Listing
Just above this message is a list of restaurants in the different regions. I'll put your restaurant name, address/direction and clickable phone number. As this guide really isn't designed to promote restaurants it is unlikely that this will fill up much. The good news is that your listing will stand out! I have little intention of trying to create a complete list as I have with the Inns... sorry. I am happy to add anyone who asks to be listed though. This means that you will stand out if you take a moment to share your name, location and phone number. Of course, those who list first, even above paid listings, are listed above those who sign up after you. So take a minute and get listed, it is really very simple, just send me your restaurant name, address and phone. Easy.
