Sit and watch as your meal is prepared at this café in Kapaa. The small yet diverse menu of sophisticated dishes features homemade sauces and local ingredients. Try the ahi nori wrap with fresh seared tuna, rice, cucumber, and wasabi cream sauce with pickled ginger and soy sauce—their most popular pick. Other dishes include rice, fresh vegetables, and either tofu or chicken served with a peanut sauce or coconut curry sauce. Everything can be made either vegetarian or vegan. Fish is caught daily by local fisherman, and produce is grown on the island. The Thai ice tea with coconut milk is arguably the best on Kauai. www.mermaidskauai.com. No credit cards.
