Cheap Eats for Kaanapali Area in Maui

Hi Hounders,

Going to Maui for a 5 day vacation in a couple weeks and was hoping to get some recommendations. My grandma's from Honolulu and I'm familiar with the cuisine but I've never been to Maui. I'm going with a few friends and we are looking for cheap eats of local cuisine. Things I miss the most being out of the east coast are:

- Ahi Poke
- Plate lunches (esp good mac salad)
- Hawaiian Fried Chicken
- Spam musubi
- Shaved Ice
- Haupia

We are at a hotel in Kaanapali so anything close would be best since it's a decent sized group. Not necessarily looking for restaurants, as the rest of them will be going to a luau before i get there to get the full experience. I'm looking hole in the walls, where locals go (like Young's Fish Market in Honolulu).

Thanks! -K
