    Destination: Maui

    keanae sign on road to hanaIn October, I became a full-fledged breadfruit fanatic. I mean, who wouldn’t, after tasting John Cadman’s dairy-free, egg-free, sugar-free, gluten-free, a.k.a. guilt-free, lilikoi `ulu pie. I also discovered an appreciation for beer. Or, at least, the Maui Brewing Co., because of their commitment to the Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project. And I sampled some of Maui’s famous banana bread at Julia’s in Kahakuloa. But, alas, I arrived too late to determine whether I liked Julia’s better than Aunty Sandy’s in Keanae along the Road to Hana. Of course, that just means I’ll have to go back;-)

  • Improve Your Eyesight. Go on Vacation.

    I drove six miles into town today. I passed a burger stand, general store, post office and a beautiful beach that stretches along the coastline on Kauai’s East Side. And I don’t remember a thing about it. I don’t remember whether I had to brake for someone in front of me to turn left into the parking area above the East Side walking path. Or whether the ocean was glassy or the wind was blowing the tops off the waves at Kealia Beach.

    Destination: Kauai

    roy's hawaiian fusion cuisine gift card in grassMy husband and I are on vacation this week, celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. Three years ago, on October 22, we celebrated at a new restaurant on Kauai. During our 25 years of marriage, I've watched other friends marry, as well. Some stay married. Others do not--even those I thought were made for each other. The same can be said for restaurants on Kauai: Some come; some go. But not The Tavern at Princeville by Roy Yamaguchi. Its menu items may have changed since we visited in 2010 but the place is still doing well, based on its Yelp reviews.

  • Maui "Sides" Trip Report

    Destination: Maui

    One of my rules of travel is to never eat at a place where I can eat at home. So, last week, I found myself at Home Maid Bakery within 15 minutes of landing at OGG—Kahului Airport on Maui. I’ve found some favorite eateries throughout my years of traveling the Hawaiian Islands. Here’s a list of those haunts I managed to frequent on Maui last week.
