Hula Grill Kaanapali (Lahaina, Hawaii)
Another nice day in Maui, another good day for food adventure and today it will be the Hula Grill in Kaanapali in Whalers Village, just a 10-minute walk from the hotel we are staying at. You can either walk on the shore, the board walk or from the side of Ka’anapali Golf Course.
It was lunch time and the place were quite full, luckily, we reserved some seats beforehand hence we were seated immediately. We were seated inside but still has this amazing view in front of us, I just wished there were extra seats on the Al Fresco section with large beach umbrellas and sand on your feet.
It was quite hot but still breezy so we started with some Lilikoi Mojito (US$11.00) made with citrus vodka, homemade mojito mix and lilikoi syrup the perfect drink for this occasion.
Plus we grabbed some Chilled Cucumbers and Beetroot served with Vegetable Hummus and Sumac Dust.
Many mojitos later we started to order our Mains, first I was intrigued on the purple bun of the pulled pork burgers hence I grabbed one.
They call it Kapulu Joe (US$15.50) and it is prepared with all natural duroc pork, macadamia nut slaw, caramelized onions, dill pickles, toasted poi bun, mango barbecue sauce accompanied with seasoned fries. I was right the bread was amazing, it was so soft a perfect vehicle for that tasty pulled pork.
We also grabbed some Firecracker Fish (US$23.00), basically a fish fillet of mahi mahi served on a spicy firecracker aioli, black bean avocado salsa accompanied with soft tacos and rice. Love that zing on the fish plus the salsa gives it a milder creamy touch, it’s just a perfect combination of flavours and texture.
And to bring it all down and ice cold Long Boar Lager Draft (US$5.00) is the best drink to do the job.
If lunches are like this then I would not want to go back home, great food, great view on a warm breezy beachfront is one of those simple life’s pleasures that you need to savour every second you are there.
