Best birthday ever... in Maui!

Started my big day with macadamia nut pancake and coconut syrup -- a side of Portugese sausage -- at the Pioneer Inn in Lahaina. 

Had some great grinds on the beach at lunch: Korean BBQ we bought at local-kine deli in Wailuku, mac salad, grilled pineapple, Longboard Lager.

After a bottle of champagne on my bro's lanai, watching the sun sink over the island of Lanai, we went to Lahaina Grill and had a spectacular din-din: a trio of lobster, crab, shrimp cakes called "The Cake Walk" (pictured above left) followed by Kona-crusted lamb chops and local asparagus. Insane! 

What an epic day. Gonna be hard to top this, but I'm working on my menu for an overnight hike into the Haleakala Crater. Any thoughts for gourmet trail grub?
