DA FAMOUS LAU LAU

DA FAMOUS HAWAIIAN STYLE STEAMED ONOLICIOUS FOOD OF ALL FOODS CAN BE FOUND IN A 5 STAR RESORT! 

Yes my friends, my foodies, if you are staying in Kapalua, Maui, on the northwest end of the island and staying at the Ritz Carlton you my friends, my foodie friends can eat Hawaiian Style!

Photo on the left is where I sat eating my beef lau lau, this is on the porch of the Honolua Store that is owned and operated by ABC Stores. Beyond those Cooke Pine Trees just about an 8 iron away, is the fine and luxurious Ritz Carlton Kapalua. Guests at the Ritz will walk up the parking lot through the trees and up to the store and have some home cooking local style.


A Lau Lau is generally made with meat, such as pork, beef, chicken, and butterfish. And salted with Hawaiian Sea Salt, and wrapped in taro leaves (Luau) leaves, then wrapped one more time in ti leaves, and steamed underground in an imu. If it is done above ground then industrial size steamers are used, the product…a juicy tender and savory dish to not only die for but to die twice for. Haha. For 6.99, I had a mini lau lau plate, with 1 scoop of sticky white rice, a small ramekin of dessert made of coconut and sugar called Haupia (how pee ah)…and some Lomi Salmon, and a Coke. Lomi means massage, and that's what chefs do, they massage the pieces of salmon with salt, tomatoes, onions and you get one delicious side.

I like to douse my rice with some Aloha Shoyu (soy sauce), Aloha is a brand of soy sauce made in Honolulu, and it isn't as strong as some other soy sauces. With soy sauces, you got to sample the many brands to find which works for you. Most locals like to use Aloha for cooking and as a condiment. I like Kikoman and Yamasa, as well as San J for different applications it all depends, but…this blog is about the lau lau.


This Pic is a Mini Lau Lau Plate at Honolua Store in Kapalua and my can of Coke.

Hope if you are on Maui and staying in Kapalua, anywhere in Kapalua, stop by the Honolua Store when they got Lau Lau, it's Hawaiian style, and if you are a foodie, and never had Hawaiian Style, then it's a must.

Ample seating with tables for 2 and 4 on the porch and on the lanai, the only thing that pisses me off sometimes is those landscapers that are fucking with their blowers and blowing rubbish all over the creation, it's like "Really?!!!! Can't you fuckers do that shit earlier when everyone is fucking just getting up?"
