HAVENS

Paniolo Smash Burger and Saimin

It’s one of our best-kept local secrets — where to find an authentic smash burger on Maui. You know, the kind that’s griddle-cooked to perfection with crunchy, crispy edges? You’ll find this nosh nirvana at Havens, Zach and Katie Sato’s takeout restaurant, which opened in late 2020. Havens (named after their baby girl) is a fine-tuned dining venue whose fare abounds with exceptional flavor profiles and expert execution — all wrapped up in a convenient to-go box. Sato serves a teriyaki smash burger reminiscent of those grilled up at the old Toda’s Drug Store in Kahului, which many enjoyed with an accompanying bowl of saimin. This sandwich-and-soupy-noodle tradition continues today at Havens. Try the Paniolo Smash Burger with applewood-smoked bacon, a fried onion ring, American cheese and house-made barbecue sauce. And of course, pair it with some slurp-worthy saimin. Now you’re in the know!
