I'll be staying in Maui for a week in early November with my girlfriend. Last time I was there was about 3 years ago and it was with a bunch of guys. We mostly ate at Maui Taco in Kihei since it was somewhat affordable and we really liked it, however, I don't see my girlfriend putting up with that for 7 days.
I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for affordable lunch and dinner spots. We are renting a condo in Kihei, so we will be making most of our own breakfasts and lunches, but it would be nice to have some other options. I'm open to driving a bit for a decent dinner.
I've been reading through some of the Maui posts to get some ideas of where to eat on the island. Mama's comes up a lot and we may consider that for one of our more "special" nights out. Last time I was there I had decent meals at Lahaina Fish Company and some place in Lahaina center that made some of the best ribs I've ever had...wrapped in banana leaves and falling off the bone. Humu and Longhi's both were somewhat dissapointing for the reputation and price, but we were hooked up by a family freind so it didn't sting too much. Other than that, we mostly went low key places(Cheeseburger in Paradise, Bubba Gump, Maui Taco, and a few other small holes in the wall). Again, this is fine with the boys, but the lady will like lighter, healthier, more chowish food. I'm open to all cuisines.
