So here is my first post about the food on last month's Maui trip...
After an amazing Saturday wedding in Maui, we were free to enjoy the rest of our stay at Honua Kai. We headed to Kaanapali Beach in search of brunch. After parking the car, we walked along the beach and saw a few things that caught our eye. Bubba Gump’s Shrimp…but it seemed like such a tourist trap.
The food wasn’t anything special, eggs and sausage, can’t really go wrong, and they were smart enough not to fuss around and add fancy sides.
The one waiter that didn’t serve us (he was more like a busboy) was amazing…he had a way with glasses…he carried about 20 water glasses in one hand…stacked them just the right way so that he could insert a finger into each stack of 5 and carried them off. It was like watching a magic act…the force was with him.
But how can you be in a bad mood when you’re having brunch beachside. Birds were chirping inside the restaurant, and we got our first taste of lazy Maui time. One elderly couple came in around 11:15 and were craving something a little more hearty, so they asked for the lunch menu. The waitress brought it over, and they placed their order from that menu. Funny thing…the waitress said she couldn’t ring the order in until 11:30…because they don’t serve lunch until then. Weird…who’d have thought they would be a stickler for timing, when their speed limit is 35-40 mph.
