The Maui Food Scene

I planned to share this post ages ago, and didn't...and now in what has been a long winter, I am craving the sun and surf of Hawaii. Here is a post on a couple of our favourite places we ate at.

We didn't do much on our honeymoon...we planned it that way. We wanted some time to relax, and for the most part, that's exactly what we did. One day we even slept for 18 hours. The one thing we did do pretty regularly was eat really delicious food. The food scene is Maui is excellent. There are tons of great little local independant restaurants, and that's what we spent time checking out. Here is a review of some of our favourites:

Kihei Caffe

The Kihei caffe is amazing. It is a breakfast spot, it is very cheap (for Hawaii) and it is BUSY!!! You stand in line to order your meals and then you go and find a table (only after you order). It's a bit daunting, but everyone always finds a table or makes a new friend. I had the traditional breakfast which was fried rice with an egg on top. It was delicious and the portion was huge, I ended up eating it for lunch the next two days. We also got a very yummy Banana Bread muffin with chocolate chips and coconut on top, it was incredible!

808 Deli

For lunch one day we tried the 808 Deli. Everything on their menu is under $10, and the food is Fresh and Delicious. This is a picture of my yummy Turkey Sandwich (Chris said it was boring) and he got the pulled pork. We both loved our choices and the atmosphere of the Deli.

Cheeseburger in Paradise

I know Cheeseburger in Paradise is a chain, but we had some very yummy burgers here one day, and they served the Hawaiian beer that Chris really enjoyed. It's definitely worth checking out if you're craving a god burger!

Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice

Don't take Chris' look as an indication of how yummy this was because it was absolutely delicious and a small was HUGE!!! I think the Mister was just annoyed I was taking a picture before he could dig in! There is a lot of debate over the best shaved ice between Ululani's and a place called Local Boys, but we loved Ululani's. Make sure to ask for a snow cap add on which is a sweet cream mixture, gives it a nice creamsicle touch!

Monkeypod Kitchen Restaurant

This place is reviewed as one of the best places to eat on Maui. The food is fresh and the atmosphere is awesome. This is a picture of the homemade jalepeno poppers and they were very yummy. They have a great happy hour where all appetizers are 50% off and pizzas are only $9. This was one of my favourite places not just for the food but how awesome the decor is:

The moral of this story is, we ate very well on our honeymoon, and in this cold long winter, I can't help but think:
