Sansei has occupied a special place in my heart ever since that
first time I went to their Kihei location. My friend from out of town,
my roommate and I all stopped by to catch the kama’aina discount early
one Sunday evening. My friends couldn’t get over the delicious mango
crab hand roll, but I had already discovered my most favorite roll
ever: the Paia Maki. Oh, and then Calista Flockhart sat next to us.
Yes, THE Calista Flockhart. See, “normal” people—I have no problem
referring to myself as normal—as well as the rich and famous love
Sansei. 115 Bay Dr., Kapalua, 669-6286; 1881 S. Kihei Rd., 879-0004.
