Maui has a surprising slim number of Thai food options and most of them are frankly horrible. Based on this I was reluctant to try out the Crying Thaiger food cart. Boy am I glad I did!
The menu is small, which is such a great thing, they are able to really focus on the quality and freshness of the food items they offer. After talking with Steve, you can really see his vision of creating "street food" for a Maui audience. I have had the Pad Thai ( by far the best on the island) the Spicy Minced Chicken Salad (Larb) and the Green Papaya Salad - all made fresh and with excellent flavoring. Be sure to pick your hotness level, if you like it hot they will make you happy.
The price is great and the sizes generous, I really can't think of a better way to get a good meal and support at great local business all in one shot.
