On our latest Hawaii Vacation Connection Podcast hosts Aloha Bruce and Lanai Tabura discuss their recent trip to Maui for a pop-up dining event they put together at the Lineage restaurant at the Shops at Wailea.
This podcast gives them the opportunity to share some information about Maui also know as the Garden Isle. They note the many improvements made at the Kahului Airport, and how easy it is to fly there from Hawaii and many US mainland destinations. They discuss a new tram system that gets travelers to the rental car area and other changes that make it much easier to hit the road from the airport. As Lanai says, “We’re not stuck in the 1970s anymore.”
Aloha Bruce lauds the Fairmont Kea Lani on Maui for the quality of the suites and villas at the property. He says that rooms and suites at the Fairmont Kea Lani come with a lot of “extras,” including a secluded beach and world-class golfing, restaurants, and a state of the art gym with Pelaton training options.
Lanai and Bruce get into the pop-up experience at the Lineage, which featured chef Sheldon Simeon featuring interpretations of plantation-style dishes from Hawaii’s multicultural, agricultural past. The event included a history of foodways and ingredients in Hawaii.
We podcast about Hawaii
because we love Hawaii.
The conversation leads to a discussion of what “poke” is. Our hosts both agree that you can find Hawaiian style cooking and people with a deep connection to Hawaiian food all over the US. Lanai says that he can take his pop-up concept of Hawaiian style food anywhere.
Our hosts also discuss Lanai’s upcoming pop-up event at the Hau Tree Lanai at the New Otani Resort in Waikiki on December 5th, and what attendees can expect.
Aloha Bruce also encourages listeners to leave comments on the podcast at iTunes and other services strives to connect with people interested in planning a Hawaii vacation.
