Tasting Kauai: North Shore Food Tour | Best Places to Eat in Kauai Hawaii


Are you looking for a fun, kid-friendly tour
on Kauai? How about a Kauai food tour? Hi, I’m Marcie from Marcie in Mommyland
and I want to show you all about experiencing unbelievable local food with Tasting Kauai. This North Shore food tour of Kauai started
in Kilauea and ended in Hanalei. There were 7 places on this tour. Our first stop was Kauai Juice Company. We
tried 3 Kauai kombucha drinks they had on tap featuring fresh tropical juices. We heard the story of how they got started
and why they are so passionate about sharing their nourishing juices and kombucha with
visitors and locals alike. My kids loved the bubbly and slightly sour
taste of the drinks! After our tasting, each of us got to choose
our own bottle to take with us. Our next stop was Sushi Girl, which is located
right across the street from Kauai Juice Company in the Kong Lung Historic Market Center. They are known island-wide for their sushi
burritos! It tastes exactly how it sounds. Like a Southwest-inspired
sushi hand roll with hints of California. And you have to dip it in their “yum yum”
sauce! These flavors worked so well together and
it would be an awesome lunch spot on a hot day! And don’t miss this fun photo op just steps
away! Then, we got in our car and headed to Kauai
Farmacy. It’s a farm where they grow lots of medicinal herbs and create products to
help people soothe their ailments naturally. We got to taste a few different blends of
tea and they passed around spices to smell. My kids got a kick out of cracking their own
macadamia nuts! The grounds itself are really pretty. There
are lots of plants (of course) but also interesting seating options and a rustic jungle gym. It’s a great place for kids to burn off
some energy in the middle of this Kauai food tour! Next up was gas station pizza. And it was
incredible! When the owner took over the North Shore General
Store at the 76 Station in Princeville a few years ago, he brought a pizza oven over from
New York City. The crust has the right amount of crunch and
the toppings are fantastic. It’s flavorful, satisfying, and perfect to pick up and take
with you to the beach or bring back to your hotel. Next, we walked across the parking lot to
talk to a guy about dried fruit. Uncle Mikey is known for creating the best dried fruit
on Kauai without all that “weird” stuff! We got to try lots and lots of samples! The flavors popped in my mouth and tasted
just like they do when they are fresh. I’m talking about papaya, mango, pineapple, Kauai’s
famous apple bananas, and coconut! And it’s not leathery or gummy. Just plain
and simple dehydrated fruit and it’s the perfect taste of Kauai! We ended our tour in Hanalei, which is famous
for their taro fields. So, it was only fitting that we’d taste the much-talked-about poi. You can find Hanalei Poi at local grocery
stores on the island, but this food truck offers lots of additional taro products like
taro hummus, taro veggie burgers, taro mochi cake, and taro smoothies. We got to sample their Kalua Poi Bowl. It’s
a bowl with kalua pork, lomi lomi salmon, and fresh poi. The kids gobbled theirs up almost as fast
as the adults! Our final stop was Wishing Well Shave Ice
across the parking lot from Hanalei Taro & Juice Co. We tried their passion fruit shave ice with
freshly cut papaya and it was divine! The ice was shaved so finely that it had almost
a creamy texture. Plus, they offer organic, house-made fruit
syrups. It’s really no wonder that this is one of the top shave ice spots on Kauai! Tasting Kauai provides the only family-friendly
food tour like this on Kauai and they offer them all over the island. The whole tour lasts about 3 and a half hours
and costs $109 per person. It’s perfect for people of all ages and they have allergy-friendly
options. The Tasting Kauai food tour will surely be
a highlight of your next family vacation to Hawaii! Thanks for watching and be sure to subscribe!
