Nagasako Okazu-Ya Deli
Local Plate Lunches in Lahaina, Maui try Nagasako Okazu Ya & Deli. Located in the Old Lahaina Center right across from Foodland Supermarket, off of Highway 30 either turn left on Papaulaua St. heading north, or turn right heading south, the landmark is the Chevron gas station. See the Mc Donald’s, turn left on Wainee St., (Why- nay) St. then turn right, you’ll see the store on the immediate left, and is central to down town Lahaina’s Front Street where all of the shops and restaurants are at.
The Nagasako family ran Lahaina’s only major supermarket when us Lahaina locals were kids, everything was bought at Nagasako’s and as the major chain markets invaded Maui also, the Nagasako’s fell prey to their marketing tactics, and had to fold their business, but the family kept open a small venture that’s been around for decades, the Okazu Ya & Deli is still a great little place to get some very simple lunches.
Our plate lunches are displayed in the hot bar, through the glass case, you look for the items that might turn you on. Such as fried battered fish, teriyaki beef, roast pork with gravy, hamburger steaks, musubi, raw fish, sandwiches, chicken. All plates come with the standard rice and macaroni salad. I love to get a hamburger plate with chow fun noodles in place of rice.
