Poipu, Hawaii, a quaint little town on the island of Kauai, has made itself into an appealing vacation spot for those enjoying their retirement or a weekend getaway. All aspects of the area, such as the beaches and the restaurants to the chickens freely roaming around, emit an aura of calm and relaxation. The neighborhood's local restaurants, like those decorated with a few glowing lanterns to ones that sit beside peaceful tide pools, serve delectable dishes, both from the “aina” and the “moana” – the land and the sea. With land-based meals, guests can enjoy delicious local steaks or chicken hot pot, and from the sea, diners can savor perfectly grilled ahi tuna, tempura shrimp, or macadamia nut-crusted mahi-mahi.
