Village Snack and Bakery (Hanalei, Kauai)

This place, Village Snack and Bakery, is probably the dicey-ist looking place we ate on the island. But, as usual, looks can be deceiving and the food is really good.

Here’s the Chili Pepper Chicken for which they are famous.  The deep fry was perfect – chicken was very juicy and the skin very crisp.  It is doused in a spicy chile sauce that is not too spicy for kids – just gives it a good flavor.  Mexican food spicy, for you US eaters.  The rice was good and the potato mac salad was also pretty good.  I judge a place by it’s mac salad.  And here, the mac was not overcooked.  If it had some crab it would be perfect.

The teriaki chicken was a generous portion.

Combo plate here with chile pepper chicken, spam, and teriaki beef.  The beef was sliced very thin and was tender.

Not sure how this compares to L&L around the corner in the same shopping mall.  I know that the L&L in Lihue was so disappointing the last time we tried it, I swore off L&L on this island, and all future visits did nothing to change my mind. Hopefully the L&L in Hanalei is better.  Has anyone tried it?
