There’s a new restaurant in town and if you love robust flavors, unique ingredients and worldly-inspired delicacies then Rocksalt could be your new favorite. Located at the Sheraton Maui in Kaanapali, at the former Black Rock Kitchen location, Rocksalt pays homage to a menagerie of ethnicities, influences and diverse cooking styles. Doors to this new concept kitchen officially opened June 1st, but the planning, strategy, menu development and conceptualization began nearly a year ago. The new dining concept, created by Executive Chef Lyndon Honda, aims to create sharable plates while exploring global cuisine utilizing local ingredients.
Here’s a taste of the first bites:
Overall, this was an amazing meal. The innovative dishes paired with the gentle island breezes and polynesian hospitality made for a perfect experience. It is rare to encounter a tasting where I pretty much liked everything I ate. This leaves me craving more and the fusion of ingredients is to be applauded.
Kamaaina receive 25% off all food and beverages, so might as well give it a try and experience this new restaurant.
