The thing that makes us different than any restaurant is we believe in seasoning. We have found a tremendous amount of food is served here in Maui very bland or unseasoned. We strive to season every side and corner so each bite has great flavor. We mix up our own special seasoning mixes  ourselves for different items. A must-order on the menu is our stuffed burger or fish and chips. I would challenge any restaurant on the island with those items. Any challengers?



Don’t overcook your chicken breast or chicken in general. People are so afraid of chicken being done and as a result they make it dry. A chicken breast left on a grill even just 20 seconds past being done will be dry. It’s a very small window but the difference is intense.



Grilled Chicken with Goat Cheese Drizzle


Cook 2 chicken thighs on a grill or flat top skin side down 20 min then serve crispy side up.

Combine 1/4 cup coconut milk, 1/4 cup chocolate, 1/4 cup goat cheese, 1tsp salt, 5 tablespoons sugar.

Mix together in saucepan until it thickens.

Lay fresh sliced papaya (sliced very thin) on top of chicken.

Drizzle sauce on top.

Add almonds or cashews over it.
