1. Fruity Cocktails like Mai Tais: Hawaii is famous for its mai tais, which is a drink made with dark rum, curaçao, and lime juice. They're pretty delicious and I know that our first evening will include a few of these!
2. Fresh seafood! This is high on both of our food wish lists. Being far out in the Pacific Ocean, Hawaii boasts some unique seafood. On one of my work trips to Honolulu, I had the chance to try ono and it was amazing! I'm also interested to try Tuna Poke.
|The famed Giovanni's shrimp truck - it's as good as you've heard!|
|Duke's is the place where I tried Ono. The restaurant was amazing and it lived |
up to the hype!
4. Local breweries: Adam is really into beer and has done quite a bit of research on the breweries in Hawaii. He discovered that Kauai Island Brewing Company is the westernmost US brewery so you better believe we'll be making a stop there on our travels. I also would like to visit Kona Brewing Company. Apparently the brewery is a beautiful setting (which is a little out of the ordinary for a brewery!) and the food is great. I think this will make a good post-hike or post-snorkeling lunch stop.
5. Kalua Pork: We have booked a luau for our first Thanksgiving as husband and wife (insert tween girl squeal) and everyone tells us that the Kalua pork is incredible!
Have you been to Hawaii? Any foods or drinks that we must have? If you have restaurant recommendations for any of the three islands we'll be visiting, I would love them!
