New Kauai Restaurant and Food Truck Guide Published by Kapa`a Author, Marta Lane


Tasting Kauai, A Restaurant Guide


Kapa‘a-based author and journalist, Marta Lane (also the owner of Tasting Kauai, A Culinary Romp Through Paradise) and her husband, professional photographer Dan Lane have recently published a book now distributed through Kindle (electronic) and Amazon (print). A common question from visitors is  “Where should I eat on Kaua’i?”  The new guidebook, “Tasting Kauai: Restaurants, >From Food Trucks to Fine Dining, A Guide to Eating Well on the Garden Island. The book features 69 restaurants that make fresh food from scratch, using local ingredients whenever possible.

For more than three years, Marta and Daniel Lane have contributed two weekly food columns to MidWeek Kauai. In her column “Tastes of Kauai”, Marta has profiled restaurants, chefs, food artisans and beverage makers. Her “Farmers Markets” column introduces family farmers, what they grow and where it can be found. Daniel’s vivid photographs run in both columns.

The Lanes compiled their favorites into a useful guidebook that takes readers on a culinary trip around Kauai. Whimsical graphics indicate price range, free Wi-Fi, food trucks and when reservations are recommended. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free icons offer at-a-glance options for those on alternative diets, and a “slippah code” lets readers know what to wear. A pink hibiscus indicates the best of the best.
