BEST MAI TAI, Winner Kimo's Address: 845 Front St., Lahaina, HI 96761 Contact: Jack Starr Phone: 661-4811 Fax: 661-4597 Website: www.kimosmaui.com Ah, the mai tai—an integral part of the island experience. There’s hula, beautiful beaches and that lovely concoction of light and dark rum and pineapple juice. Right? Not so fast says managing partner Michel Roy and bartender Pepe Nuno of Mai Tai Lounge in Lahaina. A true mai tai has a number of ingredients—light rum, dark rum, orange curacao liquor (made on Oahu by the Portugese, btw) and orgeat syrup but no pineapple juice. It’s this attention to detail and discerning MauiTime readers that have placed them at the top of the mai tai heap. Head over to the West side and give our regards to Pepe.
