Me with a Mai Tai at Hula Grill on my birthday last year

My name is Angie, and I live in Kihei, Maui with my wonderful boyfriend, Anthony. I love dining at local restaurants, trying new cocktails, cooking at home, mixing my own drinks, and blogging about local restaurants, food in general, and my own cooking and recipes.

I am not a professional food critic, a chef, or a professional food writer. I am simply a local actress, paper crafter, home cook, home bartender, and frequent restaurant patron who loves to eat, drink, and write about it. I also support local businesses and restaurants by featuring them on my Dining on Maui blog and social media feeds. My focus is not to write a full review on each restaurant, but to provide insight on something that sets the restaurant apart. It’s not just the food, but the experiences that bring us back to restaurants.

My favorite drink? On the mainland, I drank red wine and dirty martinis.  Over here in the high humidity of Hawaii, I switched to the light and fruity tropical mai tai.  The best I’ve ever had?  The Monkeypod Mai Tai at Monkeypod Kitchen in Wailea. The drink packs such a punch!  It is almost double the rum in most mai tais, and all of the juices they use are fresh.  The best part – the bartender tops it with a honey lilikoi foam.  Oh, it is dreamy!

Thanks for stopping by!
