So I may have done something very very wrong. It could change my perception of Maui moving forward.
I ate at Star Noodle.
Now that seems innocent doesn’t it? It’s just a noodle joint, right?
I ended up eating at what could be my favourite restaurant in Maui. Chef Sheldon Simeon is amazing. He created a menu of sharing plates that use the best of local ingredients along with noodle dishes and everything looked good on the menu. Everything.
Fortunately I was with a group so we pretty much ordered half the menu:
Filipino pork with a cracked egg, kampachi, namul, malasadas, roasted mushrooms, pohole salad, namul, steamed pork buns, vietnamese crepes and this was only half the food!
Chef Simeon changes the menu every three months to keep things fresh and encourages the bar staff to create new cocktails like the cucumber asian pear martini I had despite the jet lag. I may have developed a new chef crush but this time as brave enough to ask for a photo.
The only downside to this place is that you may not want to eat anywhere else. In fact that is exactly what I am worried about.
