Today we were supposed to be driving across to the OTHER side of the island Maui to do some ziplining.  Well, we still went but I woke up feeling sick 😦  It was so sad because I was just starting to feel really relaxed when I got sick.  This ALWAYS seemed to happen.  As I started to ease into the rhythm of travelling and really start to enjoy myself, I often got sick.  It all started with a sore throat and simply feeling really really tired, but I decided to soldier on- we DID pay for the ziplining tour gawd dammit!

For starters we shared a crab and macadamia wonton $10.95.  This is probably not the best thing to order when you are sick LOL but I didn’t realised it was deep fried… Cantonese wontons are not normally deep fried unless it specifically said so.  It’s like deep frying a steak, it was just a bit unexpected.  But well, this is not Hong Kong and I shouldn’t simply assume like that.

Hubby ordered a foccacia chicken sandwich $12.95.  This was served with Grilled chicken breast, mac nut pesto, mozzarella, provolone, and jack cheese with fries.  Hubby thought that it was nothing special, but I tried a bite and thought the bread was fresh and crumbly like an Amercian biscuit (like, in a good way).

IMG_7497 [640x480]My gado-gado was not impressive at all.  Even a person as sick as I am and wanted plain food did not want that.  It was so flavourless!  It did not even have the same ingredients as a normal gado-gado, especially my favourite ingredients- prawn/ tapioca crackers and egg on top!  Sadness!

Overall we weren’t very impressed with Hula Grill.  Yes, it has a great view, but so does many restaurants in Maui.  6/10
