A couple of weeks ago I sent out a twit asking my Maui tweeter friends to let me know where they eat. I told them I am writing a blog post on “Where Locals Eat”. As expected, I got a lot of replies (gotta love Twitter). But I got busy, and have not posted anything about it. I planned to submit the “where locals eat” post to the blog carnival at Home Spun Honolulu  but didn’t happen. I was late.
The list is still in progress but I thought I should just upload it (the Spring Break visitors would benefit here). Uploading this halfway done will hopefully motivate me to work on this post. I am submitting this list to Tackle It Tuesday.  I know the “tacklers” at 5 Minutes for Moms are great encouragers.
Please note that this is not a comprehensive list. I will keep on improving this post – links to the web, add photos and direction, etc.
This list is compiled from my experience and preference as well as those recommended by local friends.
