Private Chef Created Must Try Maui Dishes

The pandemic has significantly impacted our daily lives, including how we travel. With the tight travel restrictions and busy schedules we have, we might be missing out on the must-try foods worldwide. Hawaii is a wonderful place to visit but if you can’t get there soon, here are some private chef created must try Maui dishes that you can explore.

Many people have long praised Hawaii for its beautiful islands and unique, scrumptious food. The island of Maui, in particular, is a must-visit place if you want to indulge. However, you no longer have to book a flight if you want to enjoy the food that this tropical paradise has to offer. Fortunately, you can now enjoy a taste of Hawaii without leaving your home by booking a private chef.

A Glimpse Of Maui

Hawaii’s second largest island, Maui, home to luscious vegetation and broad access to pristine waters and seafood. The weather is ideal for growing several foods. Residents found ways to incorporate the abundant produce into mouth-watering dishes. 

Travelers favor the Hawaiian island due to its world-famous beaches and fresh food. 

Must-Try Maui Foods

After getting a glimpse of the breathtaking Hawaiian island, here are some chef created must try Maui dishes you can request your private chef to cook for you. 

1. Poke Bowl

One of the best Maui dishes you can request from your private chef is the poke bowl. If you’ve been on Instagram, you might have seen a mouth-watering photo of a poke bowl. 

Poke (pronounced poh-keh) means “to cut” in Hawaiian. This fish dish, cured in a delicious sauce, is one of the iconic Hawaiian dishes, thanks to its healthy and fresh benefits. 

2. Hawaiian-Style Shaved Ice

Another way to cool for the summer is by requesting your private chef to prepare some Hawaiian-style shaved ice! A cone of shaved ice with sweet local and classic flavors (pineapple, strawberry, banana, and papaya, to name a few) is the best way to beat the summer heat. 

You may also opt for condensed milk or azuki beans if you’re feeling daring today. 

3. Loco Moco

Go loco for this crazy-delicious dish! Loco Moco is a cheap yet hearty dish that emerged in 1949 after a group of teenagers requested an inexpensive and convenient alternative to a sandwich. Since then, it has become a staple food in any place on the island. This hearty dish combines rice topped with a burger patty, rich gravy, and a fried egg.

4. Malasadas

And to wrap up your authentic Maui experience, request your private chef to whip you up some malasadas! This Hawaiian dessert has roots in Portugal. These are deep-fried oval doughnut balls dusted with sugar and cinnamon. Classic malasadas have no filling, but they continue to evolve today with sweet filling flavors.
