Maui – Leoda’s Kitchen and Pie Shop

By travelanswerman | March 16, 2012

When traveling as much as I do, it is a rare day that one can find a touch of home so far away on the Hawaiian island of Maui. Leoda’s Kitchen and Pie Shop, in the quaint village of Olowalu, was the perfect re-fueling station after a long day of meetings and interviews. Chef Sheldon Simeon’s (voted by his peers as the Aipono Awards Chef of the Year) menu was like a walk thru memory lane with mom’s recipes.

This wonderful gem of a restaurant offers the hungry visitor a wide variety of savory and sweet pies, salads, sandwiches and hamburgers. But, do not assume these choices are your basic restaurant fare.  For example, I ordered their signature Fried Salad which was a marvelous tongue tasting experience in itself! Made from the outer leaves of brussels sprouts then fried to a light and crispy texture then married with a mouth watering burnt-orange vinaigrette plus mixed with a variety of other garden fresh greens. Wow! My main entree was the old home favorite Chicken Pot Pie. I actually thought it was better than mom’s! Sorry mom!!!

If you still have room for dessert, maybe you will float away to just this side of heaven with one of their famous pies! This is a must stop for anyone who thinks that eating at mom’s house is just a faded memory!
