For once, the ocean views live up to the food, and not the other way around. With Humble Market Kitchin, celebrity chef Roy Yamaguchi pays tribute to summers spent volunteering in his grandfather’s general store. Opened in late 2016 as part of the Wailea Beach Resort’s $100-million renovation, the restaurant serves up reimagined Hawaiian comfort foods: poke (raw, seasoned fish), misoyaki butterfish with forbidden rice, and ramen loaded with pork belly, dumplings, a sous vide egg, and lip-smacking sesame broth. Wander around the menu sampling the steamed dumplings, crispy chicken wings, and Szechuan baby-back ribs just as if you were a teen snacking at your favorite grandpa’s counter—only in this instance, “grandpa” is one of Hawaii’s greatest chefs. Breakfast is a lavish affair here, with Hawaiian sweet-bread French toast slathered in whipped maple butter and lilikoi syrup—or, for the health-conscious, avocado toast on Blue Door sourdough.
