The Feast at Lele
Upon the golden sands of Lahaina, the ancient capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, Hawaiian royalty once dined and entertained. You too can dine as royalty at the Feast at Lele Luau, Maui’s only five course, full service dinner. Prepare for a culinary adventure like no other in the islands, as your senses are transported throughout Polynesia.
Just before sunset, check in with the Feast at Lele hostess along the shoreline at the Shops at 505 Front Street. A warm aloha greeting, fresh flower lei and mai tai welcome you to your candlelit, seaside table for you and your guests. As the sun sets and your server greets you with options from the full premium bar, enjoy traditional appetizers of banana and sweet potato chips served with a tropical ginger and seaweed salsa.
The Feast at Lele beings with the first course from our own island home of Hawaii. Sample the Imu (underground oven) roasted Kalua pork served over steamed cabbage, pohole fern and heart of palm salad and local fresh catch with mango fruit salsa. As you delight in the flavors of Hawaii, feast your eyes and ears on dancers as they chant, sing, and hula in honor of the land and culture of Hawaii.
The evening’s pace begins to take shape as you are served the second course from New Zealand. This course features duck tenderloin salad, steak cooked with kiwi fruit in a soy ginger sauce, and roasted mushrooms with sweet potato and onion. Don’t let the menu intimidate you! Feel free to dabble in the epicurean delights, and if there is something you absolutely love, the server can certainly bring more. New Zealand’s dancers are famous for the Haka War Dance, and their face paint will take care of the intimidation.
Tahiti captivates with the third course, steamed chicken wrapped in taro leaf with coconut milk, lemongrass and ginger. The islands also feature their style of ceviche, baked scallops with sweet potato, and spinach in a lobster cream. The Tahitian dance does not disappoint as they are known for flashy headdresses, upbeat drums and lusty hip moves.
The final savory course comes from the island of Samoa. Sample grilled squid, breadfruit and squash in a coconut cream sauce and shrimp, avocado and fresh fruit tossed in a passionfruit dressing. The dance of Samoa is a favorite for visitors and locals alike. Sit back and marvel at the amazing fire-knife dance finale.
The final dessert course of exotic tropical fruits, Hawaiian chocolate truffles, and macadamia nut tart with coconut custard completes your evening of authentic Hawaiian hospitality and decadence. Join us at the Feast at Lele, and dine as Hawaiian royalty once did–in a sensory adventure through the islands.
