Dinner at Star Noodle in Lahaina, Maui, HI

Apparently Maui is NOT known for ramen, which was tragic because that was one of the food things we were most looking forward to.  The best ramen is apparently at Star Noodle.  Usually it's packed and you have to get a reservation or risk waiting a long time.  Fortunately it was pouring out so we only waited about twenty minutes.  The ramen itself was okay, not that memorable compared to the ramen we had in Oahu, or also just places in NYC.  But the other dishes were excellent - garlic noodles and Filipino "bacon and eggs."  Those are def worth coming for.
Filipino "Bacon and Eggs" - crispy pork, poached eggs, tomato and onion.   An easier way for people to sink into sisig.  Pork was great, not too fatty with great sear

Steamed Pork Buns - duroc pressed pork, hoisin, shiitake, and cucumber.  Delicious but pretty large so was getting full

Mixed up bacon and eggs

Garlic Noodles (small version LOL) - fresh and fried garlic, dashi, and green onion.  Simple and delicious.  Nice semi crispy noodles with so much garlic and butter flavor

Hapa Ramen - rich pork broth, roasted pork, soft boiled egg, choi sum, kamaboko, bamboo shoots, mayu and aka miso.  Broth was good but didn't have that oil that the other ramen had.  There was a ton of pork though, more than I've ever seen in ramen and it was delicious!  Had consistency of thick cuts of pernil.  Amazing
