Maui - where to find Pipikaula like Helena's plus other ???

HNL | Jul 18, 2010 12:07 AM

We are heading out to Maui for the 1st time in November and staying at the Westin Villas for 10 days and looking for great reasonably priced CHOW equivalent if not better to what we love on Oahu. We will have a car so traveling to good eats is not an issue. What we especially like about these places are that they are so unique to Hawaii (hopefully not to only Oahu) and Chow we can not readily get in Los Angeles. Here are the restaurants we love on Oahu that we are hoping to find on Maui:

Helena's Hawaiian Food for everything but especially their PIPIKAULA. Been to Ono's and Highway Inn and they did not compare to Helena's. IMO Ono's is way overrated.

Nico's at Pier 38 for their specials and Loco Moco.

Rainbow Drive In for their cheap and tasty plate lunches.

Halekulani HWAK for their hula/entertainment with appetizers overlooking the beach and ocean watching the sunset.

Diamond Head Market & Grill for their plate lunches and Blueberry Cream Cheese Scones.

KCC Farmers Market for the variety of produce, number of vendors and excellent collection of food made to order.

Shirmp Trucks - prefer Romy's over Giovanni's.

Matsumoto for their Rainbow with azuki beans.

Bubbies for Ice Cream which we prefer over Lapperts, although Lapperts is a close 2nd.

Also looking for recs on places to buy great Poke, a place for sushi, and korean plate lunches.
