If there is one thing that the Sayles Team can unanimously agree on, it’s that we all love our food! A lot of our office gossip consists of unbelievable food we stumble across in our daily lives, whether it’s: a mango on the side of the road, a spice rub the significant other made, a local mom and pop shops’ specialty, or a new restaurant in town; whatever it is, somebody from the team is on it.

The team lives across the island and spend their times free enjoying diverse sets of activities. This is a selection of the Sayles Team’s Best Picks!

The property is on the North Shore and is in a beachfront with an absolutely gorgeous. At sunset, the sky illuminates to shades of blue, orange, red, and many other serene colors. Also, the ocean view is something else at sunset, our day is ending but the ocean’s is just beginning.

Riccardo Menicucci, executive pastry chef at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, shone bright during his recent foray into reality cooking as a contestant on a Food Network baking competition, “Spring Baking Championship.”

In the end, Menicucci created a coconut milk panna cotta with pineapple foam, roasted pineapple and macadamia nuts. Wow!

Maui, home to Hawaii’s most diverse microclimates that include rainforests, desserts, highlands, rolling grass lands, and polar climates, its restaurant landscape is equally complex and beautiful. Some establishments offer food that’s universally likable like burgers and pizza, while other places venture into exotic and cutting edge flavors.

Over the years, the mix of cultures have created a cuisine we call “local food” which can be loosely likened to what fine dining refers to as Asian Fusion. But today, we are going to take a look at what locals like to eat and where you can get it!
