A few weeks ago we took a one week vacation to Maui (specifically the Kaanapali Beach / Lahaina area). We had an amazing time even with the tsunami warning and not really relaxing since we had our toddler with us. Anyway we are here to talk about gluten-free food:

There were may options while dining out. Most of the restaurants are small and cook from scratch. At no point did we get that blank stare, everyone knew what gluten-free was. Some highlights included:

Penne Pasta Cafe: Small counter service place with brown rice pasta.
Maui Tacos: Take out taco stand
Hula Grill: Very nice place right on the beach
Bubba Gump: I know, it's a chain but we were exhausted from the all nighter tsunami evacuation and I just wanted some simple grilled shrimp and rice. (they have an official gluten-free menu)
Foodland super market: very extensive gluten-free section.
Almost anywhere: The Fresh Fruit, Fish, etc!

There were others but rest assured if you want a vacation in an amazing setting, eating gluten-free in Maui is no problem at all.

Oh and here I am being interview on the today show about the evacuation: http://www.bing.com/...twitter/69ubxdu

We stayed at the westin villas time share place. Family owns. I personally don't see the value in ownership everything there is just so expensive.

My family went back this year (without us) and said they noticed even more gluten-free options. One place is called star noodle. Bring me back some pineapple! You'll have an amazing time and don't sweat the gluten-free in Maui. A very easy location to get buy.

:) Thank you! We can hardly wait! We'll be staying with friends half the time and I think we'll try the Westin the other half! :) Pineapple's on its way!

FYI, there's also a Costco next to the airport. Very easy to stop on the way to your destination on Maui.
