we just came back from Maui where we did nothing but eat and swim. it’s been about a year since our last vacation, so we were in desperate need. we literally had no itinerary, and just a list of restaurants we wanted to try. between meals was a little shopping. i have to say it was a bit depressing. usually i can shop for hours, but since i have a growing bump, ‘regular’ clothes just don’t look that cute.
the weather was all over the place. the first day was unbearably humid and felt like we were standing in an oven. each day after, it got cooler, until it rained our last day there. despite the weather, we had a great time eating our plate lunches by the beach and cruising in our rented mustang convertible.
Maui restaurant’s we liked:
Kimo’s – casual burger joint with a great outdoor patio overlooking the ocean. i recommend this for lunch
Honu – fresh seafood and pizza overlooking the ocean. great ambiance, and romantic for dinner
Aloha Mixed Plate – casual outdoor restaurant you picture when you think “hawaii”. tiki torches light your meal on the beach.
Leoda’s Kitchen – delicious pies! a farm to table type of place you would usually find in LA
Iron Imu BBQ – authentic BBQ food located in a resort. no view, or frills, just good food
