Our local friend took us to this place for a hearty breakfast :D Dry noodles, loco moco, chicken katsu and fries. Great prices, great service and I still dream about those udon style pork noodles. Go if you're on Maui, you'll be happy you did.

No. No Apple/Google pay either. This is very common for "Mom and Pop" restaurants on Maui and other outer islands from Oahu. I recall a sign in Hawaiian Hale (Las Vegas) that said it simply: "In God We Trust; All Other... More
