Maui Fried Chicken at Laupahoehoe Minit Stop

Why is it called Maui Fried Chicken? “Dey call it Maui Fried Chicken coz Minit Stop originated in Maui”, the cashier told me as we purchased a 3 piece box ($4.99 special) and a fried chicken plate lunch (~$7.00).  

Along with the chicken they had a lot of other local style plate lunches.  Outside on the grass, there are nice peaceful benches to sit on too.  Nice stop before heading out to Waimea or Kona.

What a deal: 3 pieces of chicken, 3 huge potato wedges, and a soft dinner roll all for only $4.99! (it was on special, regular price is $5.99).  Hoooo da tasty, crispy, perfectly seasoned and super juicy!  Bev liked it because it was “not too oily and fatty and crunchy all around…. and not the hard kine crunchy where you going break your teeth… just right crunchy”.

I got da plate lunch because I felt like rice.  It was winnaz too!  I think getting the box is a better deal though.

We are definitely going back here next time we pass this side.  Some of the best fried chicken on the island and super nice workers!

    I remember setting ads at the Trib years ago for these guys when they first came over with their Maui chicken. I always wondered what made it so special.

    Seems like a good alternative to Tex. The chicken would complement the killer sushi/musubi rolls from that place next to the Pauilo post office.

    BTW, what lens did you use on the box shot, 50/1.4? The dof works well.

  2. Lily Says:

    Did you guys know that minit stop (on Dariy Road, Maui) is the first stop of Magic Johnson when he visits. The chicken is good and crispy, but the real star is the potato wedges. I ask my sister on maui to bring a dozen wedges instead of the standard krispy kream doughnuts

  3. kelly Says:

    good to see you blogging again brah! da chicken looks ono, and not to greasy. just a liitle hot sauce…and whooweee! winnas!

  4. James Says:

    Makea, I heard about that place that sells that sushi in Paauilo. Hopefully I going stop by there next time I’m out that way! So many good places in small towns along the Hamakua coast.

    Lily, I gotta agree with you about the potato wedges. They were so good too! Each one was like a quarter of a potato and perfectly seasoned and cooked. So ono.

    Kelly, yeah hot sauce would be good on it! And no, I’m not sure if they were selling katsu (I know, you never ask haha!) — I mean, they already have awesome fried chicken… maybe it would compete with the katsu too much?

  5. James Says:

    Oh and Makea, yes that’s the 50 1.4. Nice to meet another Hilo based photographer! :) Hopefully we cross paths one day.

  6. Coconut Willy Says:

    Da buggah looks Ono! I think I’ll stop by the next time I’m back on the BI.
    The malasadas at Tex kinda disappointed me. Too used to Leonard’s and Champion I guess.

    James, have you ever had the Chicken at K’s Bento in Waipahu? Just went there today.
