Maui Eats: Kihei Caffe for the Best Breakfast

Vee Eats

If you’re looking for a delicious breakfast and brunch place in Maui, you must stop by Kihei Caffe for one of the best breakfast spots. Not only is the food affordable and delicious but the service and staff are also extremely efficient and friendly. You order inside first, get a number, then head outside to find a table at the outdoor patio and counter seating. Kihei Caffee has a great selection of breakfast items on their menu ranging from french toast, pancakes, waffles to more savory items like loco moco, chicken fried steak, eggs benedict, and more. There are plenty of items to choose from and I'm sure there is something to cater to everyone. No matter what time of the day you come, there is always a line since Kihei Caffee is honestly that delicious.

I came here on a Friday morning around 7 am and there were already plenty of people eating outside. There was also a line waiting outside for ordering but luckily, the service is fast here. I was able to order my pork fried rice and guava juice and by the time I found seating, the food was already ready for me. If I had to recommend one item to get at Kihei Caffe, it is definitely their pork fried rice. Made with bacon, ham, Portuguese sausage, rice, and two sunny side eggs on top, this was a hefty dish. It was more than enough to fill two people up for a quick breakfast meal. Not only was it filling, but it was also extremely tasty and flavorful from all the different meats combined. The sunny side eggs were fried to perfection and left a runny slide through the fried rice to add more flavor. For only $9, the pork fried rice is a must and you should try it along with their french toast. The guava juice was more on the simple side but I love how it was freshly made and not too overly sweet.

Have you tried Kihei Caffe before and if so, what were your thoughts on the food? I would definitely come back in a heartbeat when I visit the island again. You can find parking on the street and this is a top-rated and popular place so make sure to come early and grab yourself a plate of their delicious food. It is also across from the beaches so this is a great place to eat before you start all your beach activities.

Oakland Eats: Tastee Steam Kitchen for Sauna Steam Pot

If you are looking for an innovative and interesting dining experience, check out Tastee Steam Kitchen for a sauna steam pot! Located on Harrison Street in Oakland Chinatown, Tastee offers a unique type of cuisine where you can select raw items and the food is inserted into an appliance where it steams the food so you can see it go from raw to steamed and cooked within minutes. This is a different type of cooking since it allows the food to retain flavor and nutrients while also being more tender and soft. It is considered more healthy since there is no preparation for the food besides steaming, so it is better than stir-frying or deep frying. Another part of this is that you can choose a porridge base that sits right under the appliance. There is rice cooking underneath and as you cook the food, all the juices and flavors also go into the porridge and soak it up. They serve the porridge afterward and there are plenty of spices like white pepper and chili oil to add more flavor. On the menu, they provide a marker where you can select the items you would like to steam. Their selection is extensive and you can choose from live seafood, vegetables, beef, chicken, pork, meatballs, and more. Most items are a la carte. If you are not interested in the sauna pot, they also have sushi rolls, seafood boils, mini individual hot pots, all-you-can-eat shabu, and more. There is also a sauce bar where you can mix your sauces filled with garlic, soy sauce, chili oil, cilantro, green onion, and more.
