Address: 395 Dairy Rd., # J, Kahului, HI 96732 Phone: 808-877-8707 Las Piñatas is pretty much why I became an intern at Maui Time Weekly. Years ago, while enjoying a huge plate of delicious nachos, I stumbled across an issue. I also picked up a copy on another visit, while gorging myself on the scrumptious Kitchen Sink Burrito. From then on, I associated the euphoria I felt from my taste buds and the pleasant feeling of being full with this very publication. So there you have it: Las Piñatas is a fiesta for your mouth but beware! Your food high may cloud decision-making skills. At least it did for me. I love interning at Maui Time Weekly…just not as much as I love Las Piñatas.
Best Place to Get a Pinata with a Mandarin Jarrito, Winner Las Piñatas
Address: 395 Dairy Rd., Kahului, HI 96732 Phone: 808-877-8707 Every holiday party we have at my house is really just an excuse to get a pinata. Gathering the folks around a hollow paper mache icon you hit with a stick blindfolded creates unforgettable family memories (and hopefully no serious injuries). There’s no better place to pick them up than Las Pinatas. Their entire ceiling is covered! While there, don’t resist the urge to suck back one of their Jarritos that come in exotic flavors like mandarin and tamarind. And the food’s good, too. 395 Dairy Rd., Kahului, 808-877-8707. JR
