Silver ‘Aipono for Best Noodles
Located off the tourist grid in a commercial business zone, Sam Sato’s attracts a clientele of mostly in-the-know locals who recognize authentic flavors and good value. Even neighbor island visitors look forward to filling up on Sato’s famous dry mein while on Maui. Perfect al dente noodles, sauced with oil, oyster sauce, and shoyu, then topped with char siu pork, green onions and bean sprouts, are served with a sidecar of chicken broth. It’s the ultimate local comfort food and the $7.95 tariff is another soul-soothing aspects of dining at Sam Sato’s.
SIDE DISH – There’s often a wait to get a table, so allow plenty of time to savor this homey favorite.
So the next time you develop a hankering for worldly fare, click your rubbah slippahs together and repeat after me: There’s no place like home!
