Tried NUKA Maui on Hiro's Birthday -- What a Treat!

YES, I want to chime in with all of the people who have been raving about Nuka's in Haiku. It's an all around FANTASTIC eating experience!

Here's their menu.

If you want to take a peek at what Nuka offers, check out their Facebook page. My photos pale in comparison. 

I'm guessing you'll fall in love with Nuka like I did.

BFF Mona and I got there early (they open at 4:30pm every day except Monday). No reservations needed.

We started out with the best. FIRE and ICE Roll in honor of Chef Hiro's birthday.

I would have gone home perfectly content if this was the only dish I had eaten. It was that good!

Fire and Ice Roll - shrimp tempura, avocado, spicy mayo, topped w/ ponzu shave ice

Mona ordered for the both of us. (She's an expert on Japanese cuisine). 

This is what came next.

Spider roll - soft shell crab, cucumber, pea sprouts, masago, and eel sauce


Shrimp and vegetable tempura - lightly battered and fried in rice bran oil, tempura sauce

We topped our meal off with ice cream. So ono!

Black sesame and green tea ice cream, with chocolate sticks

On our way out, we stopped to wish Hiro a happy birthday.

What a great smile!

Beau Joe's birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks. Guess where I'm taking him?
