RESTAURANT OF THE WEEK
A PERSONAL REVIEW OF RESTAURANTS AROUND THE WORLD

ALEXANDER'S FISH AND CHIPS
KIHEI, MAUI, HAWAII

Let's face it.  Hawaii is very expensive and this most certainly applies to restaurants.  However at this little gem of a place you can dine on absolutely fresh fish and at affordable prices.

Alexander's place is more of a "stand" than a restaurant.  In fact it is known as a "take away" place although they do have a few tables around if you're lucky enough to get one.

The restaurant is located right across the street from the water in the relatively affordable town of Kihei in Maui. 

The drill goes like this.  You study the overhead menu, wait in line, turn in your order and then wait until your number is called.  As for choices, the ono is my personal favorite battered and cooked in the deep fryer.  But if you're trying to watch your fat intake you can always get your fish broiled.  Other excellent fresh fish choices include mahi mahi and ahi.  They also have various shellfish baskets including shrimp, calamari and oysters.  Landlubbers can take their pick from chicken or ribs.

Once you get your order you head for the catsup, mustard and tarter sauce dispensers, fill up little cups, grab some napkins and head for a table if one is available.  Or you could load up and head across the street to Kalama Park (just head for the whale!).

Don't quote me on prices but the last time we were there, a fish and chips meal could be had for about eight bucks.  Not bad by Maui standards.

Alexander's is open from 11am until 9pm.  No credit cards and get there early if you don't want to stand in line.  This is a busy little spot.
