You might not expect to find one of Maui’s best lunch counters between a barber shop and a Payday Loans, but that’s sort of how Hawaii works. Tin Roof’s “Kau Kau Tins” are a nod to traditional Hawaiian lunch boxes, and come with options like pork belly, garlic shrimp, and Mochiko chicken (Hawaiian fried chicken made with sweet rice flour batter) on top of rice, kale, or garlic noodles. Order online to skip the line or, since it’s located close to the Kahului airport, skip the airline food and make everyone jealous on your flight by picking up something to eat on the plane.
