D's Kitchen-Mapunapuna

While driving through Mapunapuna, looking for a lighting cable, Pat and I discovered this little hole-in-the-wall. The Hawaii Lighting people said they couldn't do anything until after lunch, so we pulled up a picnic table and ordered some specials. I had the fried chicken and chili plate ($5.50). Pat ordered the special which had fried noodles, a piece of kal-bi, and bbq meat. All that for $4.75. The meat was good, but he said the noodles were just "ok." My fried chicken was boneless, skinless battered in flour, salt and pepper, then fried on a flat-top. Very juicy and a good crunch. Chili was probably from a can. You really can't go wrong for 5.50 though. If we do end up there again, I would skip the chili and go with a fried chicken/bbq meat combo.

If driving through Mapunapuna and you need a quick plate lunch, for a good price, try out D's Kitchen.

Sorry, I didn't get the times of business or the phone number...

Champa Thai-Aiea

Wanted to go to Kuru-Kuru, but the line was about 20 deep last night. We drove through the parking lot, and saw this place, Champa Thai. We (my wife and I) both love Thai (nothing beats Opals) so we thought we would stop in.
We ordered the Thai Chili Fried Rice (beef), Pad Thai (Chicken) and Fried Chicken Panang Curry. All medium to hot spice.
The food came out fairly quickly. It looked as though the rest of the restaurant had their food already, so that was a plus. The prices was fair from $8.95 and up. Overall we were satisfied with our meal, and the servers never let my water cup go dry.
