Back Home in Lahaina is a hidden gem off Carson Blvd. I used to eat here when I worked in the area and it was near impossible to get in if you tried to go at noon. I was down visiting my parents recently and this has now become one of their favorite restaurants. I decided to treat them to a late lunch before I had to be at the airport.
The food was just as great as I remembered and the prices were still low, especially for the amount of food you get!
We started with the Kalua Lumpia ($5.29) which is shredded pork wrapped in wonton skin and served with sweet and sour or chili pepper water. I had a combination entree with a chicken curry and their famous Lahaina fried chicken ($12.99), which is served with rice, macaroni salad, and ramen cabbage salad as well. My Mom always gets their Chicken Teriyaki Sandwich ($8.99) and my father, another creature of habit, gets their specialty fried rice ($7.79).
Their desserts are excellent as well and they have a bakery counter if you just want to walk in and purchase desserts and other Hawaiian specialities. They sell the Hawaiian juice I love in the cans which is nearly impossible to find most of the time.
Apparently they have a newer Manhattan Beach location as well, which I have not been to, but heard the food is just as good as the original.
