If you’re ever in Maui, Hawaii then you must go to Down the Hatch in Lahaina for some awesome seafood. We visited this restaurant after a local suggested it and we immediately became a fan. We loved it so much that we came here 2x during our 5 day trip! DTH is a walk up counter type spot where you order your food then find a table.
The first time we went was for dinner and we ordered the Lava Shrimp tacos. We chose the crispy shrimp version and it was absolutely delicious and fresh! The big plate has 2 tacos with lava lava sauce, chips & fresh salsa. These lava shrimps were the best we’ve ever had for it was flavorful and perfectly crispy.
We also ordered the Lobster & Crab stuffed grilled cheese. YES! and it was amazing. Every bite of this grilled cheese was packed with lobster & lump crab with every bite. We loved it!
The 2nd time we visited DTH, we ordered the Lava Lava Shrimp appetizer to share. This crispy shrimp is similar to the “rock shrimp” that we all know but Down the Hatch’s version is unique and delicious. It was presented in a cocktail glass which was cute.
For entree we ordered the seared Ahi tuna. We ordered 1 taco of grilled ahi and the 2nd was crispy. Both were delicious and fresh but personally we loved the fried crispy ahi. We also decided to try a bit of a southern flare- their Chicken & Waffles. It was also really good and the presentation of the plate was large and pretty.
Needless to say, Down the Hatch has fresh and really good seafood! #NYFoodieMustTry
