Adventurous family looking for chowhound worthy food maui/oahu

palmtree38 | | Sep 15, 2011 08:10 PM

We are travelling with a 5 1/2 and 7 year old. They are well travelled and behaved children that love lemon water in wine glasses to fish taco trucks! We have been to cali/arizona and florida in recent trips that we got some great recomendations from this board and have never had a bad meal yet!!!

We are not looking for high priced romantic meals since kidlings in tow but CHEAP AND CHEERFULL ie great views. beach front. happy hours.unique places. set menu specials for early dining. For some higher priced meals that are must see perhaps a lunch there. Also like adventure to GPS a location and end up at a truck or hidden gem ..WE are in Hawaii 2 1/2 weeks so health reasons and pocket book we cannot eat 3 meals out a day.. WE plan on having breakast almost every meal at our condo except a breakfast or brunch if nice maybe twice. Take out to the beach is great too!!!

We are staying in Kanapali area in Maui and waikiki Banyan in OAhu. We plan on staying in at our condo some nights and having bbq by poolside as well (costco members so plan on picking up meat/etc to make some nice meals as we love to cook and try new cuisine)
