Maui Travel Series: A Tropical Food Haven

Maui has a good mix of local foods and high-end restaurants, which made it a no-brainer to eat at both spectrums. Maui food, however, is relatively on the pricer side.

Lahaina Fish Co: This restaurant located in downtown Lahaina was quite a pleasant surprise. Though we initially went because it was one of the only restaurants open on Christmas Day, we loved the ocean view ambiance. The Ahi Tacos were impeccable, and the Mahi Mahi special fish plate and fish & chips were amazing as well. img_2332img_2330img_2331

Honolua Store: This was a great pit stop to grab some fresh poke as well as Hawaiian Loco Moco at very reasonable prices. We ate at this store every time we passed the Kapalua/ Honolua areas. On multiple occasions, we’d also order the poke bowl (Spicy Ahi or Hawaiian Ahi with brown rice) to-go. img_4150

Coconut’s Fish Cafe: Hailed as Maui’s best place for fish tacos, we stopped by for their classic two taco set while on the way back from Wailmea (South Maui). Each taco was generously filled with toppings which include mango and vegetables. The result is a light sweet and sour taste. img_2940

Paia Fish Market: Well-loved by both tourists and locals alike, we made a stop after a long drive on the Road to Hana. I ordered the Ahi hamburger and thought it was a bit dry. The fish & chips were amazing though, and the fish tacos as well. img_3881img_3883

Palehu: Located at the Westin Villas, our hotel’s sister resort, we decided to treat ourselves out to a nice last meal. I ordered a cesar salad, NY steak, and sorbet. img_4053

Ono Tacos: We ordered some late night tacos from Onos, the locals’ favorite taco truck. It’s not comparable to LA tacos, but sufficed to satisfy our cravings. img_2758

Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice: The best shave ice! We got pina colada/ guava and the girl who served us was really friendly too! Reasonably priced for its generous size. img_4133

Thanks for visiting and hope you’d enjoyed this list!
