Fork and Salad

Try one of their chef inspired salads, sandwiches, or grain bowls, or build your own from a delicious variety of choices. The smoky papaya chicken sandwich is a favorite, and it can be made as a wrap if you’re looking for less dough. There are two locations on Maui, so if you’re ordering online, make sure you’ve got the right one. forkandsaladmaui.com

Pita Paradise

This truly is a paradise for pita lovers. Salads arrive with fresh pita, or you can go for a pita sandwich stuffed with your choice of meats or falafel. The tzatziki is the perfect cooling topper for whatever you decide to have. Patio and air-conditioned options are available. pitaparadisehawaii.com

Pint & Cork

If you’ve had a full day on the water and need a late lunch, this is the spot. All the gastro pub menu basics are covered and then some. The pork adobo moco, lobster mac and cheese and garlic parmesan fries are worth the food coma that will lead to your late afternoon nap. Open Wednesday through Monday 12pm to 12am with happy hour from 12pm to 5pm. thepintandcork.com

South Maui Fish Company

Interested in daily caught fresh fish for a lower price? Make a stop for this food truck! Their fish tacos and poke bowls are fan favorites. This little truck serves only fresh caught fish and they do sell out. Open Monday through Saturday 11:30am to 2:30pm and Friday and Saturday 5pm to 8pm, but they recommend calling to check there’s still fish in stock as they sell out each day! Closed Sunday. southmauifishco.com

Miso Phat Sushi

Run by Hilo born turned top chef contestant Chef Sheldon Simeon and his wife Janice and built around the soothing, calm and comforting feelings evoked by rain falling on a tin roof. The mochiko chicken kau kau tin is a perennial favorite, and you can’t go wrong with the chef special. Order online and you can walk in and grab your paper bag off the counter. There is very limited in-house seating. tinroofmaui.square.site
