Heading to Hanalei just before lunch? While there are lots of spots I've heard are good (Paco's Taco's truck right on the beach!) we stopped at House of Noodles -mostly because I was in a bad mood -and I love noodles. Hence my daughter declared House of Noodles as our lunch stop. It is family-run, and the sweet young kid waiting on us, was determined to make us happy -as well as do a good job for his bosses, which added to our experience in a positive way, but if I could say something to the chef it would be kick up your sauce!
Vibe: Tourist trap skating a little too close to their next health code violation.
Menu: AWESOME! They had every type of rice noodle imaginable. Though the glass noodles I was used to are the bean thread type (super skinny) these were like sheets of noodles.
Highlights:After lunch, if you have room, you can get a shave ice or fresh coconut water.
