We love the Koa Kea Resort! It is a small "secret" hotel on the beach, with a fabulous staff and the best restaurant on the island, Red Salt. We like that it is just peaceful and kid free (nothing against the kidlets-but we are romancin' here)
If you know me at all...you know that I am passionate about good food. Last night we ate at Red Salt. This restaurant is at our hotel and it has been touted as the best on the island. The executive chef was trained at El Bulli in Spain (the #1 restaurant in the world.) This was the highlight of our day yesterday.
We started dinner with some bread. It was served with unsalted butter and famous Kauai Red Salt (Kauai soil is red clay, the beaches are pink because of this and the salt is invariably red too). Because there was no other salt available at the time for me to compare it with, I can only describe it as tasting a lot like salt. I may have detected a hint of earthiness about it, but the fact of the matter is it's just prettier than table salt.
