Thanks to Joan and John for the gift certificate, we had the best dinner ever at Mama’s Fish House on the north shore of Maui. The food and open air atmosphere were amazing and we had one of the best tables in the place…ocean front. It was so nice to watch the sunset and the windsurfers while sipping on a $17 Mai Tai. We never thought we would ever spend that much on a Mai Tai but it was worth it. The food was even better…macadamia nut crusted mahi-mahi stuffed with crab and lobster, if that doesn’t sound good than we don’t know what is. Neither of us have had lobster before we went to Mama’s Fish House, we were missing out. We got dessert to go, chocolate pie/mousse of some sort, and we ate that for dinner the next night!
We have also enjoyed fish tacos from little stands on the side of the road…best fish tacos ever with homemade pineapple salsa...yum! Apparently banana bread is a huge deal in Hawaii and everyone tries to out-do the next stand down the road by claiming theirs is the best on the island. We found some while driving to Hana at a little shack that sold banana bread and hotdogs…best banana bread we have ever had. There were people coming to this shack just to try the banana bread and eating a whole mini loaf in one sitting! (We should have bought a couple, it was sad when we ran out and didn’t have any more to go with our morning pot of coffee).
Last night we went to the Feast at Lele…it was definitely a feast. The meal included an appetizer, four huge meals (a Hawaiian meal, a meal from New Zealand, a meal from the Tahitian islands, and a meal from Samoa), plus dessert at the end in case you were still hungry. Also, you could have as many drinks as you wanted! Our favorites were the Mai Tai’s and Lava Flow (a pina colada with a swirl of banana and strawberry). In between the 3 hours of eating, we watched the show…the best part was at the very end when the Samoan fire knife dancers came out in their little shorts…haha…oh and their fire torches.
All this talk about food is making us hungry!
