Show 234, July 29, 2017: Chef Chris Galindo, Hau Tree restaurant & bar, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, Kauna’oa Bay, The Big Island of Hawaii

Chris GalindoStep off the pristine, white sandy beach and into the open-air, Hau Tree restaurant & bar on the Big Island of Hawaii at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel for a causal dining menu which includes sandwiches, wraps, hamburgers, salads, ice cream, their famous Ovaltine Froth, or a cooling Fredrico cocktail which originated right there.

This is an unparalleled spot in The Hawaiian Islands to enjoy the nightly Sunset. Truly spectacular…

Hau Tree offers a grab-n-go breakfast, sit-down lunches and relaxed dinners on the Big Island of Hawai’i. It’s complete with a gazebo-style bar perfectly situated for enjoying cocktails while anticipating the sunset’s elusive green flash.

Talking about “The Fredrico” libation… It was created as a special for a regular guest. It proved so popular it needed to be on the permanent libation menu. Fred wanted a Mai Tai variation that was a little less sweet. “The Fredrico” is Light Rum, Jack Daniel’s Whiskey and blended with Tropical Juices. Cheers…

We pull the newly married Chef Chris Galindo off the beach for an ono overview.
