Da Kitchen (Maui)

We’d read good reviews of Da Kitchen and stumbled across it our first morning on Maui. We were still adjusting to the time change, and though it was about 9:30 we felt kind of like lunch. E got the “Da Kitchen Omelet” (“Portuguese sausage, green onions, mushrooms, onions, tomato & cheese”), which was really good. Like many things in Hawaii, it was served on a big pile of rice. With a bit of soy sauce, it made for an excellent breakfast. I had the Kalua pork sandwich (“Slow cooked pork shredded from da bone”). It was piled absurdly high with pork. It was really more salty than interestingly flavorful though, and I thought it was just okay. The macaroni salad (a Hawaii staple) was surprisingly good though — I’m not really a fan of macaroni salad but I ate that one.
