Since Wednesday is also known in the blogging word as What I Ate Wednesday, it seemed fitting to share some of the food I enjoyed in Hawaii.
You’ll also be happy to know that today’s post is significantly shorter than the 2000 words I wrote yesterday 😉 I can’t really complain about being able to write such a long post, it means I had a lot of fun on Maui!
When it came to where to eat, I deferred to Lindsay for suggestions. I found Trip Advisor to be extremely helpful, but nothing beats the suggestions of a local, and her recommendations did not disappoint!
By far, my absolute favourite breakfast was an acai bowl. I did my best to eat as many as I could, and now I’m sad that it’s cold in Calgary and they just don’t taste the same here.
In Kihei, I went to WowWow Lemonade for both lemonade (so good!) and acai bowls.
In Lahania, Lindsay and I had plans to go to Choice Health Bar, buuuuuuut it was closed on Sunday 🙁 Given our track record, we weren’t overly surprised.
Instead, we wandered and found Cafe Cafe, which was quite tasty, but maybe not quite as good as WowWow Lemonade. If I ever find myself back on Maui, I’ll be sure to make a stop at Choice Health Bar as I’m still dreaming about their menu!
Lunches on Maui were definitely not planned.
My first day I enjoyed an amazing plate from the Kinaole Grill Food Truck. While the wind blew some sand onto my plate, it was still super delicious!
I also ate at Whole Foods three times while in Kahului, as the restaurant choices in the city aren’t that awesome – you’re better off to Kihei or Lahania for meals (or Mama’s Fish House if you don’t mind paying a bit more!).
Before arriving on the Island, I told Lindsay I wanted fish tacos, and fish tacos I had!
Coconuts in Kihei came highly recommended and they did not disappoint! I made two stops here for the fish tacos and, had I not purposefully went elsewhere, could have eaten here daily.
(No pictures of the tacos because as delicious as they are, it’s challenging to take a picture of white fish and cabbage and have it look pretty).
I also ate at Nalu’s South Shore Grill in Kihei twice (the second time I had planned on going to Nutcharee’s a highly recommended Thai resturant, but, take note, they are closed on Mondays. Yes, I was sad). Sadness aside, my second meal at Nalu’s I had the crab cake BLT and oh my word, it was so flipping good.
When I return to Maui, my stops will be as follows: WowWow Lemonade for a lemonade and acai bowl. Coconuts for fish tacos, and Nalu’s South Shore Grill for the CBLT. Then I might also need to swing by Nutcharee’s for curry because I missed it the first time.Maui was more than just exploring - check out the delicious food Ange found! #WIAW Click To Tweet
While I ate a lot of good food on Maui, this trip was much less food-focused than other trips I’ve taken. That said, practically everything I ate was super fresh and delicious, exactly what I’d expect from a tropical location.
