Maui - Serving Up Some of the Best Cuisine in Hawaii

Maui, one of the eight main islands of Hawaii, is home to some of Hawaii’s most breathtaking attractions. Maui is home to Haleakalā National Park and the Pools of Ohe’o as well as 30 miles of stunning beachfront.

Whether you go to visit Maui to get up close to a volcano, go swimming in its crystal waters or enjoy a day on the beach, Maui is sure to not disappoint. Maui’s unmatched beauty also goes hand in hand with its unmatched cuisine. Maui offers locals and visitors alike some of the best food and dining experiences in the world. Maui has attracted top talent and boasts a number of world-class chefs that call the island home.

Sheldon Simeon

One of these famous chefs is Sheldon Simeon. Simeon’s talent was showcased on Bravo TV’s Top Chef and walked away as a top finalist and winner of the “Fan Favorite” award in both Season 10 and Season 14. Simeon has had a robust career and has worked at Star Noodle, Leoda and Migrant Maui, all top restaurants in Hawaii. In fact, in 2014, Simeon was named in Hawaii Magazine as one of the Top 5 Best Hawaiian Chefs of 2014. The famous chef’s most recent venture is at a restaurant called Tin Roof.

Tin Roof is Simeon’s brain child, serving up his own versions of classic Hawaiian dishes such as pork belly bowls and garlic noodles. Tin Roof is located in Kahului, Maui and is a must-stop visit while touring the island. For more information on the restaurant, hours and pricing, click here.
