One of my favourite things to do when I travel is to find great local food spots, and in the collection of food trucks that can be found in a nondescript parking lot near Costco in Kahului on Maui’s North Shore there are some gems!!!
All of these food trucks turn out absolutely delicious food but my personal favourite(just edging out the “Like Poke?” Truck) is the Thai food truck, “Thai Mee Up”.
I have never had a bad meal from these guys. Everything I have ever eaten here over the last few years has been delicious. The helpings are very generous and a main serving could easily be two meals for many people. Prices are very reasonable. The pork ribs for example are one of the more expensive dishes at $12USD.
My favourite dishes are the fried pork ribs, lemongrass chicken, chicken pad Thai and cashew chicken.
The vibe of the area is very relaxed with a mix of locals and tourists all sharing the undercover, common bench seating in the central courtyard area formed by the various trucks around the perimeter. Highly recommended for lunch if you are in the Kahului/Paia area.
