Maui Eats

This time last year, Joe and I went on our honeymoon – a week in Maui. It was one of the most relaxing and chill week, although we were still connected to the outside world via our Blackberries, but who are we kidding here? We’re practically attached at the hip with our gadgets. Going through pictures of our one week in paradise, I deeply missed the sandy beaches, the tropical fruity drinks, and yes, the glorious food. We ordered seafood almost everywhere we went, sampled confections made with macadamia nuts and coconuts, ate fresh and sweet exotic fruits… We set the radio station in our rental Corolla to the Island and Reggae station, driving along the coastline with gorgeous view of the ocean, sipping on sugar cane juice, light breeze and the smell of huli huli chicken from roadside barbecue. Oh it did not suck.

Here are some highlights. You’ll see that we ate too well that week.
