Where to eat on the go for Cheap


Today we are featuring Cheap Eats across the island.  Places where you can find affordable and delicious local grinds.

North Shore – The Paia Fish Market offers fresh local fish in a variety of delightful preparations. You can get a fish burger for $10 or a fish taco ala carte for $5.

West Side – Aloha Mixed Plate offers tasty “plate lunch” style dishes at a beachfront Lahaina location with a million dollar ocean view. The favorite shoyu chicken plate is $8.95 and the popular aloha combo plate with shoyu chicken, fresh fish and teriyaki beef is only $14.95.

Central Maui – Da Kitchen offers island style food in huge portions sizes, so large you’ll usually want to share.  They are famous for their fried spam musubi $6.  Their loco mocos come in such large proportions they are aptly named the Polynesian Paralysis moco and the Kanak Attack combo moco.

Kihei – Cafe O Lei serves a lunch menu of fresh salads and sandwiches all for under $20 in a casual setting located upstairs in the rainbow mall. Kings BBQ and Chinese Restaurant offers a variety of local and Chinese dishes that you can pick and choose your favorites to create your own combo plate for under $10.  My favorite is the mochiko chicken.

UpCountry – Casanovas Cafe serves coffee, pastries, sandwiches and pastas until 2 PMbefore the main restaurant opens up.  They have an assortment of pre-made delights that are perfect for a morning grab and go.

These are all places where you can get a quick lunch before heading to the beach or take you food to go.
