If there’s one constant with kids’ taste-buds, it’s that they love their noodles. Maui grown keiki – and their ‘ohana – are lucky to have lots of options in this category. Here are seven of our top spots to find scrumptious favorites.

Low-key Ono

Restaurant Matsu161 Alamaha Street, Kahului
The ultimate in comfort food can be found in this tiny little A-frame in the industrial area of Kahului. I literally lived on their miso ramen during my first pregnancy when I couldn’t stomach anything else. 

Takeout only. They post their special of the day on their Instagram page.

Ocean-Side Slurping

Star Noodle 1285 Front Street, Lahaina

Be sure to make a reservation at their new oceanfront location and devour some house-made noodles. Lahaina Fried Soup is one of our family favorites, but be warned, it’s not actually a soup!

Dine in with reservations and take-out available. Stoke your appetite on their Instagram page.

Hello, Hole in the Wall

Tin Roof 360 Papa Place, suite 116, Kahului

You’ll recognize this spot by the crowd of people waiting outside this sweet little spot. I love my Fat Chow Funn with a side of their House Dashi Broth. Order ahead of time online and you can just walk in and grab it off the counter. You’ll get a text when it’s ready.

Take-out only. Get hungry and philosophical on their Instagram page.

Yummy Umi

Umi Sushi 1951 E. Vineyard Street. Wailuku

Known for their creative culinary chops, this spot has outrageously delicious ramen, but also flavorful dishes like Venison Swedish Meatballs and Angel Hair Pasta with Kauai Shrimp.

Dine in, no reservations. BYOB and take-out available.  Stoke your appetite on their Instagram page.

Way to-go

Izakaya Genbe 1280 South Kihei Road, suite 120

Settle in for some delicious Yakisoba or get their togo Ramen that you can heat up at home when you’re ready to eat. 

Dine in and Take-out. Find links to all the info here.

Hit the Gas

Haven’s — 30 Manao Kala St Ste 102, Kihei

This spot might feel like an odd locale next to a gas station, but trust me, you’ll be going back again and again for their various noodle dishes including Tan Tan Ramen and Saimin. They also have killer smash burgers.

Take-out only. Find links to all the info here.

Upcountry Flavor

Kalei’s Pukalani Terrace Center + Food truck across from Costco 

Although they’re known for their plate lunch, when my teenage son is done kiting, his request every single time is for their chow fun. But be warned, it sells out!

New location in the Pukalani Terrace Center. Dine-in and take-out. Find info on their Instagram page.
