Eat Spam Musubi & Shaved Ice. Hawaiian Delicacies.

While in Maui, there were a few expected Hawaiian delicacies eaten; juicy shrimp from a food truck, fresh pineapple straight from the farm and even sweet shaved ice. What was unforeseen was the popularity of Spam Musubi, both the Spam itself part, as well as, the Asian musubi twist. Spam Musubi is like a Hawaiian sushi; seaweed wrapped around […]

My Biggest Regret on the Road to Hana in Maui

Driving the picturesque Road to Hana in Maui was a more than memorable adventure. Though, the choice to make the nine hour trek all in one day meant that certain sacrifices would have to be made. Never did I think that not jumping off a cliff would be called a sacrifice. My biggest regret on the Road to Hana […]

Make 17 Stops on the Road to Hana in Maui

After spending a memorable night in the funky town of Paia in Maui, it was sadly time to leave. I will miss you Mopsey Kalua Pork Pizza and Sandy Beach Coconut gelato. But, on the flip side of the coin we were departing to drive the Road to Hana. The Road to Hana is a picturesque, curvy road along Maui’s […]

Walk a Black Sand Beach on the Road to Hana in Maui

I have been to the creamy white sand beaches of the Caribbean, the finely compacted beaches of Georgia's St. Simons Island and the course salt & pepper beaches of Northern California. But, never have I seen a black sand beach. Until now. Until Maui. The Waianapanapa Black Sand Beach is at mile marker 32 on the Road to […]

Heed the Warning at the Nakalele Blowhole in Maui

While staying at the Ritz Carlton in West Maui, we temporarily needed to escape the wind and rain of Kapalua. My hair just couldn't take it anymore. Typically, we would flee by heading South to dine at a favorite restaurant in Lahaina, but today we decided to travel North towards the Nakalele Blowhole. The Nakalele […]

Withstand the Rain at the Ritz in Kapalua

Besides this Maui Ritz Carlton stay, my only other experience with these luxury hotels was eating free lobster gnocchi and pigs tail at their restaurant in Lake Tahoe, California. It was a good one. From the title of this post it may seem as if this will be the start of a negative review. Not so. […]

Attend A Luau in Maui. It Had to be Done.

Who travels to Hawaii without attending the quintessential luau? Surely there is somebody out there, it just isn't me. A luau is a Hawaiian feast that is traditionally held as a celebration for life events. Or to appease tourists. After much research, deliberation and head wall banging, I selected the Feast at Lele for my West Maui […]

3 Off the Beaten Path Restaurants in Lahaina, Maui

When I mentioned I was traveling to West Maui, including Lahaina, for a few days, restaurant recommendations were in abundance. And though Longhis's, Cheeseburger in Paradise and Kimo's were amongst the most popular, they seemed too touristy and less trendy then my debatably sophisticated taste. I am NOT the diner who will forgo incredible food just […]

Face Pineapple Gluttony in Hali’imaile, Hawaii

Immediately after landing in Maui, we grabbed our luggage and headed to Hali’imaile. Where? Why? Hali'imaile is the only place in the United States where you can take a tour of a working pineapple plantation, besides breakfast this morning had eluded me. Noshing on pineapple sounded good, but at this point so did the crumbled bag of […]
