Maui Eats: Da Kitchen

Looking for an amazing Hawaiian Plate Lunch in Maui...look no further than Da Kitchen!

Delicious plates of locally sourced meats, seafood and produce...oh and are in Hawaii so embrace it!  My husband and I LOVE getting off the plane, grabbing our rental car and filling up on a fish basket (whole fish) or Teriyaki Beef.  After an early flight (little to no breakfast) that takes just over 5 hours (snacks on the plane no lunch) we're HUNGRY!

This is also great after a long morning of swimming...especially if you plan to hit the beach again after you eat...that's what we do!

Over The Top

So I know it's a bit much...but I love it!  

I'm a total fish! 

Sea Jewels Scuba Gal Necklace
Available Here

Our favorite vacation spot is Maui, HI...and when we're there it's... 

1. Eat 
2. Swim 
3. Eat 
4. Shop 
5. Swim 
6. Snack while Shopping 
7. Shower 
8. Eat
9. Chill
10. Sleep

...and repeat! 

I know she is called "Scuba Gal" tank and a snorkel mask makes me think she's a snorkel girl like myself!  I spend my swim time finding my turtle buddies...last year the hubby spotted an octopus that we followed for what seemed like forever...and seeing if I can spot anything we haven't discovered in years past.  Basically my backside is super tan by the end of our stay!

Wear something over the top that represents you...just do it in a tasteful way.

Happy Shopping!

I'm obsessed with it's only natural that I'm drawn to the new brand from Kate Spade called Saturday.  

This line is just as playful as Kate Spade's not so much "clutch the pearls" for lack of a better explanation!

Initial Necklace in Gold

You won't find stores to shop at just yet in the US...they launched in Japan first...but they do offer free shipping and returns to all 50 states!  Another difference you'll see, putting it plainly it's much more affordable than Kate Spade.  

Use the links provided if you see something you like...or just cruise their website because I know you'll become as obsessed as I am!

Happy Shopping!

Maui Eats: Kihei Cafe

I found my favorite breakfast spot when traveling to Maui with my oldest sister and her now husband...he was a last minute add to the trip...and lets just say I had a lot of alone time to explore!

Now I take my husband...and we're totally addicted!

My Husband with Spam, Rice & Eggs.
My Cinnamon Roll French Toast with Coconut Syrup!

Pancakes with Coconut Syrup, Biscuit, Home Fries, Bacon and Eggs.

Line goes out the door! 

What you should know...
1. This place is cash only...they have an ATM but it runs out of cash from time to time so come prepared!
2. This place is POPULAR...get in line...and don't save seats!
3. This is Maui...EVERYTHING is're on vacation so just enjoy yourself!
4. This is a Cafe...not a gourmet restaurant...the food here is really good...some is even amazing...but if you're looking to have your mind blown you should pass.
5. Located in the Kalama Village.  Address: 1945 South Kihei Road, Kihei, HI 96753 

The hubby and I love to share one of us get something sweet...the other something savory and we're good to go until late afternoon for lunch!  

*Secret tip...if you don't see the Cinnamon Roll French Toast on the menu ask for it...they might just hook you up!
