The best noodle house on Maui is hidden away at the top of the Lahaina Business Park, up the hill past a self-storage warehouse. Star Noodle serves house-made noodle bowls and specialty dishes that are designed to be shared, like steamed pork buns, pohole salad (for a taste of the island’s local fiddlehead-style ferns), and, if it hasn’t sold out for the day, the ika mazemen, which has squid ink noodles, chilled blue crab, ikura, and seaweed. Star Noodle also has a full sake bar and specialty cocktails like their lemonade drink made with sparkling blueberry sake.
