Last week was full of fast balls for my otherwise low-key lifestyle. Since being home Iʻve been laying low, and it appears my friends are determined to get me out and about..
On Thursday a friend invited me to the Feast at Lele Luau at 505 Front Street in Lahaina... It just so happens to be my FAVORITE Luau, and lots of my friends work there--Score!
As soon as we sat down I ordered one of these...
|Banana, Taro & Sweet Potato Chips|
|Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii ~ Feast at Lele Luau|
|Pohole Fern, Asparagus, & Heart of Palm Salad, Seared Island Catch with Mango Sauce, & kālua Pork (prepared in a traditional cooking style slow roast in an imu; underground oven)|
|Mmmm!! PS: Cherries? They sink..|
|Vodka | Lemon Juice | Sugar|
|Country Green Duck Salad with Poha Berry Dressing|
|Harore Jumara Roasted Mushrooms with Sweet Potato|
|Kuku Patties! Maori fishcakes from New Zealand with Mussels, Salmon, & Scallops|
|E'iota ~ So. Effing. Good! I <3 Coconut|
|Scallops on the Shell & Sweet Potato with Coconut|
|Fafa ~ Steamed Chicken & Taro LauLau Style smothered in Coconut!|
Again, not the best picture, as it was reaching the end of our open bar adventure... so let's just give me credit for taking this picture at all!
|Somoan Grindz... Descriptions below:)|
Top left: Supasui (Grilled Steak) <-- Tastes amazing as is, and even better with our Aoteaoa New Zealandʻs Harore Jumara Roasted Mushrooms with Sweet Potato dish... MmmʻMmm!
Bottom right: Palusami; young taro leaf and coconut milk with breaded fruit and squash <-- very addicting, even though by now youʻre EXTREMELY FULL!!
Last but certainly not least... tropical desserts! We ended our night with amazing Island Treats and a very talented Fire Dance...
