Divine dining at Chef Bev Gannon’s Haliimaile General Store in upcountry Maui

Patti and Richard Pietschmann

Every visit to Maui includes a trip upcountry to Chef Beverly Gannon’s Haliimaile General Store. And yes, it was once, back in the day, a true general Store serving that area just below Haleakala. But 30-years-ago, Beverly, an enterprising, talented and uber-creative young chef  converted the property into a chic but casual eatery that fast became one of the most successful and highly touted places to dine in all of Maui. Everything about Haliimaile speaks perfection from the food to the service and design. Because of that it attracts a wide variety of clients from rock stars and other celebs to locals and tourists.

I must confess that  Richard and I are friends of the owners (that's Richard on the left below with Joe Gannon),  but that does not in anyway sway our judgment as the food, time after time is heavenly.  Our most recent meal was so good that we oohed and aahed audibly.

To begin with
Hawaiian Ahi Cakes—OMG I was in foodie heaven
Radish herb salad, wasabi ginger tartar sauce 

Kalua Pork & Goat Cheese Wontons—so  delicious
Crispy wontons, mango BBQ dipping sauce – 
Togarashi Shishito Peppers—simply sensational
Blistered semi-spicy peppers tossed with togarashi,
kabayaki sauce 
Sashimi Napoleon—did I say ‘heavenly’ this dish rocks your taste buds
Layers of Ahi tartare, smoked salmon, sashimi ahi, crispy wonton stack, wasabi vinaigrette – 

Watermelon Salad—refreshing and delish

Compressed raspberry infused watermelon, feta cheese,
roasted pistachios, Kalamata olives, micro argugula,
raspberry white balsamic vinaigrette – 14
To continue

 Whole Opakapaka—we have eaten this island fish often, but it was rarely served like this, or this tasty.

Meyer Lemon Marinated Half-Chicken—she know her way around a bird

The Grand Finale

A celestial union of chocolate and caramel 

Beverly also operates an over-the-top, celebrity-centric,  popular catering business that's a perfect choice for weddings, parties and special occasions.
