Maui - drinks and food

It's stinking hot and sunny here in Vancouver, and while I'm stuck inside at work, I've been spending my nights (and mornings) by my pool - use it while it lasts.

I'm also in a balmy, tropical frame of mind - and hungry (when am I not?), so I thought today would be appropriate for a rehash of the last trip I took to Maui...

Another self-proclaimed "Best Mai Tai on the Island." Seems every bar and restaurant claims this but from all the ones I sampled, they all taste like rummy, fruity goodness to me. Though it has inspired me to try and make my own self-proclaimed "Best Mai Tai" at home.

Macadamia Nut Chi-Chi. 'Nuff said.

Cheeseburger in Paradise? More like Portugeuse Chicken Burger in Paradise....mmmm, ground chicken, swiss cheese, Thousand Island Dressing.

Yummy scrummy Shaved Ice with alternating coconut and...blue...flavours

Angry Hog- Hawaiin pork sandwich with a side of...pasta salad?

The Wabo Rita and Bull Rita at Fred's Mexican Cafe

Desert sampler at the Five Palms - Lychee Cheesecake, Pineapple Creme Brule (with edible Orchid) and Caramelized Banana....bliss

Finally, Norman and I enjoy a Blue Hawaii at the airport bar. When in Rome...

Beautiful pics! I was just a kid (around 3 years old) when I went to Hawaii so my memories of it are a little vague. Love all the food and cocktail pictures. The last one is adorable! :)

I'm headed to Maui in September. I am looking forward to finding all these yummy goodies you found.

I actually will be running a marathon there for LLS. Check out my website on my journey to health and hope for all those battling blood cancer. I'd really appreciate it if you could feature my blog and the LLS' mission on your other blog.

Cheers from Dallas

I've never been to Maui although I live in Hawaii! Cheeseburger in Paradise is pretty bad but I'm glad you enjoy yourself in other local foods! xxoxxoxo
