Freshies Maui Review
This week, we had lunch and breakfast at Freshies Maui, the new restaurant taking over what was the Market Fresh Bistro. Located behind what was the Makawao Steak House, and next to Viewpoints Gallery, is a new (and much needed) spot for quick, fresh, delicious food. Call them at (808) 868-2350.
My favorite item so far was a mix of 2 dishes. I did a half-order of the Crunch Salad (spring greens, broccoli, red cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, in a creamy basil dressing with sunflowers, pumpkin seeds, mac nuts and cheese.) DELICIOUS. I also had a chicken taco a la carte. Everything was delicious! They bring a tray of hot sauces, including a homemade fire sauce we weren’t brave enough to try… this time.
They’ve got a strong drinks menu (see below) but we opted for the green and black iced tea. Delicious! Next time, I’ll get the Spaten or ask what they have on tap.
This morning I grabbed a coffee and their Huevos Rancheros (organic housemade pinto beans, brown rice, organic eggs, cheddar, corn tortillas, ranchero sauce, sour cream, guac, and black olives). I understand why they call themselves “Freshies” now. It was great and came out faster than I could’ve gotten a coffee at Sip Me. The coffee was good too. Next time, I want to try their Shrimp Scampi.
If you haven’t had a good bibimbap, you’re in for a treat. An assortment of cooked and uncooked ingredients are served in a blazing hot stone bowl.
Haiku needs more great spots to eat & buy local meats. Toohey’s Butchery & Bistro is meeting both needs with delicious food & fresh product.
Everything was delicious! The salmon was a touch overdone, but that’s my only complaint. The “bacon” and eggs stole the show though.
