Tiki Terrace Buffet Breakfast (Lahaina, Hawaii)
If you want to have an amazing buffet breakfast you have to do it anywhere in America, they have a wide selection of basically everything. I have stayed in many hotels all over the world from good ones to bad ones, the good ones are given that they will have great buffet breakfast, the bad ones will never have it or will just give you breakfast cereals, now for the mid-range its quite a hit and miss, some have great breakfast, some don’t.
Kā‘anapali Beach Hotel is a midrange hotel on a street of five-star hotels, when I stayed here I was not expecting an amazing buffet breakfast but I was wrong, in most cases it is even better than non-American 5-star hotels in terms of the range they offer. From savouries, cold cuts, Asian breakfast, fresh fruits and bread they have a wide range of selection even the pickiest eater will be satisfied.
In the hot food section there were at least 8 selections and not all of them I had photographed. There are three types of sausages like chorizo, longaniza and some sort of a homemade mini sausages. There was also some egg foo young, fried rice, beef stew, mahi mahi in cream sauce, salmon, pepper beef, miso and many more. Just think about it, who serves beef stew and pepper beef in breakfast? Only in America.
But wait it does not stop there, they also serve a wide range of cold cuts and processed cheese; pastries like croissants, Danishes, cupcakes, muffins, French toast, hotcakes, waffles and sliced bread that some of you might have never heard of, from taro bread, marbles ones and the normal ones they have it. Fruits should never be missed as well, rock melon, honey dew and watermelon are just the beginning. And to top it all up they have also a wide selection of fruit drinks, hot drinks and coffee.
Its will be a mission to try them all out specially if you are presented with options that you usually have for dinner. On my three days stay here I think I failed to give it all a shot and I think you will need at least a full week to try them all given that they do not change their menu after the third day.
Every dish was great, the only one that did not seem right was their miso, I guess they just don’t have enough miso paste that day I tried it as it was lacking in flavour. The place was amazing, it has this family feel on a relaxed atmosphere add to that a great staff behind it, all you need to worry about is how not to miss this when you are back to the reality of life when vacation is over.
