The Makawao History Museum is featuring a new exhibit that recreates the landmark Kitada’s Kau Kau Korner Restaurant, a restaurant that served Makawao town from 1947-2007.

The museum has reproduced the interior of Kitada’s, allowing guests to sit at the table, see pictures of the Kitada family, and a collage of the friendly customers the restaurant served over the years.

Kitada’s was known for its hamburgers and their famous Kitada’s saimin bowls. The museum says that at their new exhibit, “You can almost ‘smell’ the hamburgers and ‘see the steam’ from the bowl of saimin.”

The Kitada’s exhibit opened in October and will run through April of 2019. The museum encourages the Upcountry and Maui community to experience this recreation of Maui’s history.

The museum is open Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is open on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
