If you’ve visited Maui often or lived here a while you’ve probably either heard of or been to Tiffany’s in Wailuku. Richard has heard of it but hadn’t managed to check out the food before last week.
WCM: So, Richard, let us what you thought of Tiffany’s.
Richard: Great place, full bar, great Korean style food with lunch about $8-15 – it’s a local hang-out. At lunch there were as many business people and construction guys there as there are regulars – all casually dressed, of course.
WCM: Makes sense. Many tourists?
Richard: Naw, I don’t think so. Like me they need to be reassured it’s okay to stop by if you’ve never been before.
WCM: Will you go back?
Richard: Are you kidding? I only had time to order one entree. There was a parade of great looking dishes coming from the kitchen and I’d like to try them all eventually. My server, Salina, suggested the Teishoku Plates which are small portions of several dishes; a great way to try the best of what they serve.
WCM: What did you try?
Richard: Spicy pork plate lunch with rice and mac salad. It was super good. They also brought me a sampler of the pickled condiments, kimchee style, daikon, cabbage, onions – all of which were delicious. I’d go back just for those, especially the onions.
Richard: Very friendly service, bending over backward to please the customer. No wonder they have such a devoted following. I’m sure there’s a rousing good bar scene after the sun goes down. They have many TVs spread around the bar and dining room, so they probably get a sports crowd at nights and on weekends. There is easy parking at the side of the building and in the vacant lot adjacent which is key in a big city like Wailuku.
WCM: You’ve convinced me I have to check it out.
Richard: You won’t be disappointed. Oh, and they have Karaoke every night so anytime the Idol urge hits, head on down.
