Vacations can get pretty expensive, but today, in Lahaina, I am on a mission to find the best, free and cheap things in town. This is Ululani's famous Hawaiian shaved ice. From the looks of this line, I think there's something really good at the end of the "Rainbow". No pun intended of course, although I think I might do the combination of guava, pineapple and passion fruit. They're little flavor tunnels so the flavor goes all the way down. Okay. My very first Ululani's shaved ice. Let's see. Wow. It's surprisingly creamy for an ice, a sweet and cheap treat.
Lahaina is home to one of the biggest banyan trees in the world. When you ask the locals where to eat on on the cheap in Lahaina, they may send you here to Ohana Taco for their famous Ono fish tacos. I can see why this place is so popular. You get two huge fish tacos with chunks of Ono, rice and beans. I'm digging in.
I order a Mai Tai to go with my taco. Wow. That's so pretty. You know, happy hours are long here in Lahaina. This one at the Royal Lahaina Resort lasts from 2 to 6pm and drinks like this, Mai Tai are about $6, perfect price and no extra charge for the awesome view.
Just as the sun sets, I head to Ka'anapali Beach for their famous torch lighting ceremony on Black Rock. The end to a perfect day in Lahaina.
