I need a pep talk, everyone. We are headed to Maui on 11/14 w/our 3yo & 17-mo-old. I've got lots of new small toys for both kids. At the suggestion of somebody here, I'm going to wrap them up so there's a new prize every so often to last us on our long plane journey.
I think that I may have posted about this before. If I did, I apologize for the repeat. my brain is in a million places wrapping things up w/work & getting ready for our vacation. I can't say thank you enough to everybody here for all of your posts. DH & I are on a budget for our food expenses this trip. We plan on eating breakfast in the condo on most days & probably eating 1 meal out each day. Actually, it might be 1 1/2 meals out/day because, well, this Mama ain't gonna spend her whole vacation cooking!
Anyway, I've added to my list of places that we're going to try as time permits. We plan on playing things by ear & taking our cues from our kids...if you time things right & eat when they're hungry, then everybody's happy. Otherwise, toddlers can go from happy to very cranky in 2 seconds flat! ROFL
here's my list of restaurants/take-out places that we may try. Any feedback is most welcome!
CJ's Deli & Diner (for late breakfast or lunch)
Maui Farmer's Market
Fish Market Maui
Mama's Ribs & Rotisserie
Aloha Mixed Plate
L&L Hawaiian BBQ at the Cannery Mall
Honokowai Okazuya & Deli
Maui Tacos - am curious what everybody thinks of this place
Lulu's Lahaina Surf Club & Grill - in Cannery Mall
Da Kitchen - in Kahului, we're going to stop here after we arrive on 11/14.
Honolua General Store in Kapalua
We're staying at the Westin Ocean Resort Villas, so most of our selections are in the West Maui area.
1 day we plan on going to the Maui Ocean Center. Any ideas for a good place nearby there to get some grub?
1 evening, hubby & I are going to go on a date night. We're big sushi lovers and since we live in AZ, have a hard time finding good sushi back home. Was originally planning on trying Sensei, but have changed my mind and we're going to go to Koiso Sushi down in Kihei instead (and yes, I'm going to make reservations!).
When it comes to eating out, hubby & I LOVE finding places that the locals go to. For example, my fave Mexican restaurant here at home is a little hole-in-the-wall place in a nondescript strip mall. Doesn't look like much on the outside, but they make everything from scratch every day (including the tortillas- YUM).
Does anybody know where the Da Kitchen location in kihei is in relation to the Maui Ocean Center?
