Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Crispy pata
$$, Restaurant, Wailea
"Last night in Hawaii brought tears to my eyes - for all the love and generosity, all the delicious bites, and all the people we will remember and can’t wait to see again 😭 . . . @lineagemaui is a very special place filled with very special people - @chefwonder @beckyeatsmaui @knowwl4n @nelsonsimpliciano et al - and we feel so lucky that we had front row seats, even just for one night 🙏🏽 it feels like home even halfway across the world . . . And a special happy anniversary shoutout to Sheldon and @janibum Resto life is tough but you two make it look easy AND fun 💗 #crispypata #lineagemaui #twobobos"
Mochiko Chicken
$$, Comfort Food,
"Major mahalos to @chefwonder @tinroofmaui for crushing us under mochiko chicken from heaven, pork belly noodles of my dreams, and so much more. Left a present on the bookshelf and saw some friends in the parking lot too 🐓 #tinroofmaui #itsnotevennoon"
"Housemade spam" Musubi, Tamarind glaze
$$, Restaurant, Wailea
"If you find yourself in Maui, do not miss @lineagemaui!!! I felt like I was dining in @chefwonder’s home — the service is warm & inviting, the food and drinks are so playful, and you really feel the love Sheldon’s put into his restaurant. Everything is flavorful and delicious but some things I wouldn’t mind eating again and again: Housemade Spam Musubi, Poi Mochi, Hekka, and the chili water!’ll know what I’m talking about once you go. Sheldon’s really changing the game here in Hawaii, so proud of you! 💕"
