Barbeques at Kiahuna Plantation
There are many wonderful Kauai restaurants to enjoy when staying at Kiahuna Plantation Resort. But, every so often when traveling, a home cooked meal seems appealing. The condominium kitchens at Kiahuna, while small, are pleasant and well stocked with all the necessary pots, dishes, and utensils needed to prepare a tasty, dinner. You'll most likely find basic spices, such as salt and pepper are there, too.
You'll want to find some ingredients for your meal that can be prepared on the outdoor grills. Well maintained, large, covered gas grills are found throughout the complex. Often they are in use, but because of their generous size, many people share a grill. It's a fun and friendly way to meet your neighbors, and swap island experiences.
Whether you prefer fresh-caught island fish, steak, or grilled fruit and vegetables, it's a fun adventure to find the ingredients for your meal. On your way back to Kiahuna, after a day of adventures, a stop in Old Koloa Town, should provide everything you need. The Koloa Fish Market sells fresh fish. Sueoka Market also offers fresh fish, meats, wine and produce. If you are lucky enough to be in Koloa on a Monday at noon, their Farmer's Market can be found at the baseball field on the main road. The variety of island-grown offerings, from salad makings to tropical flowers, is amazing. Be sure to get there when it opens. Shopping there is an experience in itself. Once your meal is put together, it's time to sit back and enjoy a sunset over Poipu Beach. The scenery and the relaxing atmosphere is almost surreal.
