Hawaii Day 10: Star Noodle, Shave Ice, Road trip Up North and Local Pita Place

After crazy road to Hana driving,  we decided to drive the north east and west of Maui. We took our time and enjoy some of the scenic stops on the way to Lahaina.

When it was about 10:30 in the morning, I searched for some restaurants and found Star Noodle. According to the reviews I’ve read, the owner of the restaurant is Chef Sheldon from Top Chef. I’m not familiar with the show since I do not have Bravo channel on my cable.

It’s close to the mountains.

We were happy with the foods but there were nothing memorable with the famous garlic noodle and pork belly buns. We did love the tempura prawns.

Mango pudding.

After lunch we strolled to Lahaina and try the famous shave ice in Maui – Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice. The mango and coconut  tasted just like real mango and coconut though watermelon tasted typical artificial flavored ones.

It got coconut ice cream on the bottom.

After some time of driving, it became like a road to Hana part 2. We saw more  beautiful mountains,  ocean and narrow bumpy roads .

I told my husband that views are amazing but driving on the mountains back to back got me a little car sick.  I need a break from mountain driving.

We got hungry after the mountain drive so we stopped at Pita Paradise in Kihei. Then I saw another branch at Wailea (where we were staying).

Their pita breads were delicious.

After eating, we soaked at the resort’s pool(we were the only one) and watch the stars above our heads. We don’t do this star gazing in our real everyday life. It was very relaxing.
