Visit Big Island: Merriman's Waimea

Although I've been to several of Chef Peter Merriman's restaurants, so many have told me I need to go to the flagship Waimea location, which they deem to be the best.  And finally, I went!

Merriman's Mai Tai

I went on a Sunday, where in addition to the lunch menu, they also offer brunch.

Tomato Soup

Caesar Salad

Fish Sandwich

Punaluu Sweet Bread French Toast

Avocado Toast

I enjoyed the ceviche, the Caesar salad (made with Hirabara Farms baby romaine and topped with a fried tomato "crouton"), and the avocado toast, which was garnished with Kawamata tomatoes.  

I thought the French toast had just the right amount of sweetness.

The service was excellent, and we were thoroughly entertained by "Uncle Jay," who seated us and continually cracked jokes with us.

I'm glad I finally tried Merriman's Waimea, but I definitely am eager to go back to try the dinner menu, as I've seen online the dishes that Executive Chef Chad Yamamoto creates, and they look amazing!
