Aloha. As part of my bucket list, I would like to dine at as many world-famous
restaurants as I can. One notable place is on the island of Maui with a very
unassuming name, Mama’s Fish House Restaurant. Listed as top ten in the US by trip advisor and I recall seeing some type of review claiming the best seafood in the Pacific.
I read about this restaurant in a 71-page book (booklet?) entitled Maui, Ten ways to enjoy
the best food and locations while on vacation. Although, very light in
options, the author zeros in on the best things found on multiple trips to the
island. He mentions that he saves this restaurant for his last night on the island.
Implying that this restaurant will be a fitting last meal on the island. I must say
Mama’s did not disappoint.
When my family and I was there (for our last night in Maui) the menu listed 5
Catch of the Day fish from 5 different fisherman by name. This was in addition to
the wonderful offerings of the regular menu. The business is a large and efficient
operation offering a uncrowded, relaxed island feel.
To be sure, Maui has many fine restaurants, but they all seem to specialize. As an
example, many have excellent Ahi Tuna recipes, others specialty drinks, etc. It
seems Mama’s does it all at once. Aloha ahiahi (Good evening).
