Awesome Salad Bar

Hi folks.. heading back to Maui at the end of March and one thing I can't seem to locate is a great salad bar. I could eat salad all day, if I dont have to make it! LOL

we stay in Kihei so does anyone know of one down that way, or Wailea?

Thanks in advance!

Ruby Tuesday will be opening in the Piilani Shopping Center (where Roy's was). Don't know if they will have their salad bar or not. tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g29220-i86-k507147…

Hawaiian Moons the health food store has a salad bar (next to Sports Page and Maui Taco) by the pound. 808 Deli(next to Fred's) has good salads(no salad bar).

thanks Barefoot... we were there in November and saw them working on Rudy Tuesday but being from Canada I have never eaten at that chain. I'm guessing they "typically" have a salad bar? We will definately check that out...

We will definately go to 808 Deli next time too.. we ate at the bistro and loved it!

thanks again!

On the mainland, their salad bar is a big draw. Not a huge one but a nice variety.

The Sunday brunch at the Makena Resort had a fabulous salad selection but for $50 pp you would expect that.

Aloha,

Ruby Tuesday's here is indeed suppose to have the salad bar. One reason you don't see them here much is the climate and the biggest reason is the waste and subsequent cost.

Whole Foods has a huge salad bar, if you're over in Kahului at some point.

thanks SW.. makes sense.. I remember the salad bar at the Chart House in Lahaina years ago.. loved it..

we dont have salad bars here in Vancouver very much.. hard to find a good one... anyways, I will definately try Ruby Tuesdays... they were interviewing in November while we were there.. had a big sign up.. I wanted to apply and stay forever!

I wouldn't count on Ruby Tuesday being open by the time you arrive. Things don't move along at warp speed in Hawaii! LOL I'll look again next trip to Safeway, but it didn't seem all that far along. (They still have their "We're Hiring" banner up if you want to send in your application.)

Shelly, the Farmers Market at the Queen K Mall has nice and less $$ romaine and red leaf. Also cucumbers and long green beans. We pick up a Huli huli chicken on Sat. in front of the small church on the north end of Kihei Rd..

makes great salads.

Mana foods in Paia has a very nice selection of greens and veggies.
