The food truck scene by the Kahului airport is worth trying

Food Trucks near the airport on Maui.

When you're in Kahului Maui and ready for a quick lunch, there's a food truck court closeby.  You can find the entrance off Haleakala Highway, across from the Costco gas station.  591 Haleakala Highway that is.  Lots of free parking!

The food truck scene by the Kahului airport is worth trying

When we went last week three food trucks were operating and we chose the one selling fresh raw and cooked fish... Like Poke?  Because we saw this truck featured on the TV show Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, we made a point of finding it.  Since it was sort of late, the menu was limited so we settled on the Ahi Katsu plate and the owner made it extra big enough to share, with two scoops of white rice of course! We tried both the regular and the spicy style and they were both great and definitely worth going back for. The poke bowls look really enticing too, so another visit is being planned. 

For those of you who aren't familiar with poke (pronounced po-kay), it's basically bite sized chunks of fresh fish, seasoned with spices and usually shoyu (soy sauce) and onions, and eaten as a snack with chopsticks.  Nowadays chefs are getting creative and coming up with many varied recipes and also cooking treatments.  It's all good!

There were other options: Thai Mee Up which serves Thai food; Mama T's serving local favorites; Tacos Maui 8 Wonder; and Kalei's Lunchbox.  All of these places were also busy, showing that there's a lot of demand for good lunch food in Kahului.  Picnic tables are covered so you can sit in the shade while you enjoy your grinds. So many options these days for places to eat in Central Maui!

Maui is a great place to eat really fresh fish. You know it's just been caught in the ocean by some local fishermen and delivered to the restaurants the same day.  Does it get any better?

Be sure to try this spot if you're looking for something different for lunch.  Now if you're looking for a home to buy in the central part of Maui... search the Maui MLS here.
