Hidden away in Wailuku’s industrial area, this humble, family-owned eatery dates back to 1933. It’s one of Maui’s last ma-and-pa eateries, and everything on the menu is under $10. Sit at the cafeteria-like counter and strike up a conversation with your neighbor. Try your dry mein (al dente noodles served with slices of char siu pork, bean sprouts, green onions, and broth on the side) with a side order of grilled teriyaki meat sticks. On the way out, stock up on Sam Sato’s other famous specialty: baked manju, flaky pastries filled with sweetened lima or adzuki beans.
At the Millyard, 1750 Wili Pa Loop
