Maui does not have very many Chinese restaurants.
The only one that people recommend is in Lahaina which is about a 45 minute drive. I'm much too lazy for that .. unless I'm there for other reasons. We have lots and lots of other Oriental and other Eastern ethnic foods ... Japan, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam and the all inclusive "Asian" and "Hawaiian" which is anything with teriyaki sauce.
Growing up in Columbus, Ohio most of the Chinese restaurants were really, really Americanized. We grew up without much money in the early years, we would go to Ding Ho for an annual "vacation" meaning we each could order whatever we wanted AND have an appetizer. Good times.
Mom and Dad would go there for a date once in awhile, or with friends. As some of us got older (and could chip in) and my Dad had worked his way up as a super good carpenter (and made almost a living wage), we would get to go there more often. In my teens, it was a fun dinner date.
One of my favorite dishes was egg foo yung. It's a Chinese omelet with a gravy/sauce on top. I haven't seen it on a menu in years. My Mom actually made it at home on occasion. She was an adventuresome cook. That's a whole other blog! I sure miss her. And her cooking.
Today when I was taking my buddy Phyllis shopping (she's making beef stew!), I saw a nice small bag of bean sprouts, cabbage and carrots. I have a Costco chicken and some left over rice from soup the other night.
Tonight I am making egg foo yung.
