My husband had to try the chili chicken in the deli. Somebody told him it was to die for. Well, it WAS. We loaded up on some road tasties and got some fresh produce to take to our condo back on the beach. The deli makes homemade dishes, local cuisine, ready to go. We ran out to our car and ate some of it. Took the rest back to our place. It is the local market of local fame with regular grocery store items, too. It is a great little store and we will always come back here for the real deal.

We were staying in Makawao and the store there had very limited inventory. Rather than going to Foodland, we went to the Superette. What a great find. They have pretty much anything you need here, including awesome fresh ahi poke that we ate 3 times during our stay. Delicious pre-make foods, good prices, friendly staff, and a relaxed upcountry feeling that made shopping here a nice experience instead of the chore it is at the bigger places.

Tasty homemade food, entrees, proteins, side dishes, traditional Hawaiian dishes, hot and cold, ready to serve. Tasty and reasonably priced. But no seating.

This is the local upcountry market, which carries fresh local produce, local grass-fed beef, and your typical small market staple food items. The Superette also has a large ready-made food and meals section, with ono (delicious) foods prepared in their onsite kitchen. You can buy their famous chili chicken, kalua pork, lau lau, char-siu pork, chow-fun noodles, spam musubi, bento lunches, and more. In the chilled foods section, you can stock up on their homemade potato and macaroni salad, lomi lomi salmon, namasu, and delicious tako poke. So ono!

Great grocery store. Very good prices. Now they are carrying more organic produce which I love. Quick in and out shopping. All the essentials and good local to-go foods like chili chicken and spam musibi.
