BEST TACO SALAD
I take my taco salads seriously. It’s close to a faultless food, with a mix of tortilla, meat and greens. It has to be flavored, fresh and crisp. At Cilantro’s the Mariposa Salad is just that, and so much more. Jicama was made to join with their roasted chicken and avocado. Did you know they rotisserie their own whole chickens there? Delicately spiced, you can order the chicken on any of the dishes. As for the salad, it’s a perfect Lahaina lunch. 170 Papalaua Ave., 667-5444.
