Maui, Hawaii | Mama's Fish House

I probably had 30 people tell me to eat at Mama's Fish House when we announced we were going to Maui. So, we did after spending the afternoon in the cute little town of Paia. And it was amazing. Now, I'm adding to the chorus of people singing this place's praises.

Please, go if you are in Maui. It's just such a special place. All the Hawaiin kitsch you could imagine and yet, the seriously best fish you've ever had in your life. I had the Panang Curry. Tyler got the mahimahi stuffed with crab and lobster. Mmmm...Oh, and the dessert is really good, too. Try the banana & macadamia nut crisp with tahitian vanilla ice cream. Ohmygosh. So good.

And the beach outside... It's so gorgeous.

PS. If you're imagining a small shack with mama cooking you her special recipe, you would be wrong. This is an expensive dinner in a nice setting.

In fact, I was totally blown away with how big and nice the restaurant is considering it's location. Dress cute and plan to spend some cash. It's worth it though. (You know I wouldn't steer you wrong.)
