Manana Garage Restaurant - A Latin American Eatery
33 Lono Ave, Kahului Maui HI, 808 873-0220
The other day I had lunch at the Manana Garage - citrus jalapeno glazed grilled salmon on a spinach salad, with fried purple sweet potatoes, and warm jalapeno cornbread. Delicious of course! I've only eaten there about 3 times, and it was good every time. The food is Cuban/Latin American, which is a little different than the usual fare here on Maui. They've been in business long enough that they must be good. Many other restaurants come and go, but they have survived. They are available for private parties and business meetings.
Manana Garage is one of the few nice restaurants (as opposed to fast food outlets) in Kahului that is open for lunch and dinner. The colorful decor is lively and fun, and the owners are very friendly. This place is a favorite for business lunches, as the location is right in the heart on town.
Here are some other menu items to tempt you:
- Maine lobster ceviche
- rock shrimp ceviche
- sesame crusted sashimi
- duck and sweet potato quesadilla
- chorizo stew
- chicken tortilla epozote soup
- guava glazed baby back ribs
- blackened fish tostada
- basil crusted crab cakes
- roasted vegetable enchiladas
- Cubano classico sandwich
- Latino dip sandwich
- smoked chicken pasta
- banana caramel zango with cherry berry sauce
- adobo pulled pork
- rib eye and New York steaks
- rack of lamb
I am sorry to say that this restaurant is no longer in business! In it's place we are expecting a second location of Casanova's which is in Makawao. Stay tuned to this blog for that event.
