Must Eat, Must Drink: Hawaii

1.  Shave Ice - We were definitely shocked to hear that our good friends that now live on Oahu have not had shaved ice yet.  I mean, its like not having popcorn at the movies, a beer at the game, or shots at the Monday morning meeting.
Aoki's and Matsumoto's on Oahu and Annie's on Maui...all Damn Good. 

2.  Betty's - The best restaurant in Lahaina is Betty's.  Low key, great food, and a Luau!!  That's right, skip the $90 Luau and just get a good seat at Betty's.  Just in front of your ocean view, is the stage.  We just couldn't get enough of Betty and went there twice! Mahalo Betty - You're the best.
3.  Mama's Fish House - Now if you are heading to Maui, you must have a big night out at Mama's Fish House.  Its a little more on the pricey side, but Oh-So-Worth-It.  Seriously.  The view...amazing.  The atmosphere...amazing.  Mama's Stuffed Mahi Mahi...Ah-Mazing.
And check out our dessert....The Black Pearl (make sure you say that in your best Pirates of the Caribbean voice).
8.  The Daily Plate - If you are heading to Hawaii, you MUST have a Daily Plate.  You can find it just about anywhere.  The more its a "Dive" the better. Our favorite daily plate was at Nico's Pier 38 (featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives).  Also try the Loco Moco - Rice, Burger patty, 2 eggs, and lots of gravy.  Hello Heart Attack.
5.  Coconut Porter - Even if you are not a huge dark beer kind of gal (or guy), you MUST try the coconut porter by the Maui Brewing Co.  We are already trying to get it at our local liquor store.  
6.  Plantation House Restaurant - Even if you don't golf, you have to appreciate this view.  Wowzers! Plus, this place has the best damn crab cake eggs benedict you will ever have.  The Food Network channel (and Kat) say so! 


  1. How do you not gain weight eating all those delicious Hawaiian treats. Did you get the shaved ice with the ice cream at the bottom. There is no other way...

  2. Trust me, we both put on some pounds! But we were also total dorks and brough exercise bands/tubes to be able to do some sort of work out. Huge dorks.

    I got one shave ice with icecream, but all the others I had the condensed milk on top. Soooooo good!!

  3. Love Mama's Fish House!!
