Maui Trip 2013

Every year, I travel to Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island for a couple days for work. I'm a little late on the post for these 3 outer islands for the year, but I didn't want you to miss out on my new (and some old) food adventures.

In this post: Ichiban Okazuya, Star Noodle, Tasaka Guri Guri, and Sam Satos. There are no Brussels Sprouts from Star Noodle in this post because we went too late in the day and they were out, BUT if you do eat here, you MUST try it. Tender morsels pan-roasted and then baked in butter and bacon. I dream about this dish. I suggest going as early as possible- they're open throughout the day. We got there around 7pm and there were a big mass of people waiting outside. We waited an hour for seating, plus they were out of Ahi Avo, Brussels Sprouts, and a lot of other menu items already.

Early morning flight to Maui calls for mini Cinnabon and OJ from Burger King!

Need a quick bite? First lunch stop at Ichiban Okazuya! This place is a small "Mom & Pop," but their food is fresh and there are always people in there getting take-out or eating right outside. Delicious food at a really reasonable price!

STAR NOODLE. My fave! Hou Hou Shou Sparkling Sake. Our waiter's suggestion? Squeeze some lemon in it and then sip.

Steamed Pork Buns

Garlic Noodles, add in Mushrooms

Pohole Salad!

Filipino "Bacon and Eggs"- Crispy Pork, Poached Egg, Tomato and Onion. Comes on a sizzling hot plate. This was our favorite this time around!

Break Poached Egg, mix......

Now.......DIG IN!

Dessert! Malasada with Chocolate and Butterscotch Caramel Sauces, Nuts. A side of Raspberry Chocolate Gelato! Ready for the ULTIMATE MALASADA?

Use your knife to make a hole in the Malasada...

Stuff Gelato in the center.....

Drizzle Butterscotch Caramel Sauce on it.....


Always need to stop for Tasaka Guri Guri!!! The best breakfast before work! Open at 9am M-F.

Yup, you can take it back home with you!

Sam Sato's Dry Mein! First time trying this stuff!

My awesome friend, Chris, bought me Manju to take back on the plane too. I have the most amazing friends!!
