You dreamed it and now it is finally a reality, you are packing your bags for Hawaii. While you are filling the island vacation itinerary with things to do in Maui on a budget, we have a few dining recommendations that are kind to your wallet.
Aloha Mixed Plate in Front Street
There is nothing quite like lunch with an ocean view and Aloha Mixed Plate doesn’t disappoint. Situated right on the water at the infamous Front Street, this casual restaurant serves local eats and authentic Hawaiian favorites. Owned by the same entrepreneurs of the Old Lahaina Luau, you are sure to be treated to a relaxing Hawaii experience.
Maui Shrimp Shack in Honolua Bay turnout
If snorkeling at Honolua Bay has worked up an appetite, you won’t have to travel far for a budget-friendly meal to fuel you for the rest of your Maui adventures. So before you turn out of the Honolua Bay, stop at the Maui Shrimp Shack! Cooked right there, we recommend trying the renowned crunchy panko breaded or sautéed fish taco but get them before they are gone because these guys sell out fast.
The Fish Market in Honokowai
You simply cannot come to Hawaii without trying the fresh fish and The Fish Market is known for some of the freshest. It is not unusual to see someone carrying in just caught seafood as you dine and as a tucked away Lahaina eatery, locals love it and you will too!
Foodland in Lahaina
You journeyed across the Pacific Ocean to come and enjoy the warm sands of Maui’s beaches, so why wouldn’t you spend as much time soaking it all in? For those of you looking for a savvy and unique on the go dining option while on vacation, Foodland is always a great choice! Experience that poke dish that everyone is raving about or even that SPAM sushi that you see just about everywhere.
And while you are shopping for your next beach picnic, make sure to snag some groceries to cook up in your West Maui home away from home at Kahana Village. The most budget-friendly dining option that comes with incredible ocean views, laid-back atmosphere, and tasty dishes is right out on your private lanai! With the fully-equipped kitchen or the guest-only grills part of the resort-like amenities, you can easily whip up an island-inspired meal!
