Kaana means to share and that is just what you do when dining at Kaana Kitchen at chic and tropical stylish Andaz Maui in Wailea. The menu is lovingly presented by Aloha-spirited severs who look like they love their jobs. We recognized many of them from years ago.
To enter Kaana you first valet your car, if you are not a guest. Then you walk into a dreamy landscape overlooking the ocean that takes your breath away, especially at sunset. We (husband Richard and I) just love this hotel. And so it appears do the many millennials, rich Asians and mainlanders who fill the stunning rooms.
Okay back to KK where we did an encore dining experience recently that was as ever sublime. It is so romantic reading the menu together while sipping wine and a martini and deciding what to share. In this epicurean episode it was Ahi Tataki, Kona Kompachi Poke and a pyramid of black sesame noodles.
Our waitress was a pure delight allowing us time to ponder he menu and not rushing the courses. Wine and water glasses were kept full.
Kaana Kitchen is truly one of Maui’s many culinary jewels and a must do for foodies.
All lovely. For main courses we chose seared Ahi and Opah-the chefs know their way around fresh island fish prep.
