About Chris O
Lives in London
Since Aug 2007
Hi. I’m Chris, an American freelance creative living in London. I keep busy working as a blogger, photojournalist, community manager, consultant, curator and more. The opportunities and challenges keep getting bigger, better and more meaningful for me every year! I’m having so much fun. Favorite destinations are many and my list of must-see places to visit seems to get longer the more I travel! I’m a huge fan of Lisbon, Istanbul and Queenstown – to name but a few preferred repeat locations. I also love heading back to the States every chance I find and cannot get enough of the Deep South – Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee and the Carolinas – and Hawaii holds a particularly special place in my heart as well. And even though I’ve been based in London for years, it and the whole of Britain still yield myriad wonders for me.
Dinner Theatres, Luaus
Planning a big day of adventure? Start things off with a hearty breakfast, a generous helping of aloha, and an excellent cup of joe, at 808 Grindz Café. Whether you’re going for the pancakes, waffles or French toast, be sure to have ‘em with the homemade sweet cream sauce.
From 'epic' hot dog to wholesome vegan meals, there’s more to this new eatery than just its amazingly refreshing and massive shave ices. With a goal to transform the humble shave ice shop into a hip, big-city style eatery, Breakwall is a funky spot for a fun and affordable breakfast, lunch or snack.
This upscale restaurant is arguably Maui’s most romantic, and is widely thought to offer the best table service on the island. It’s also a wonderful place to enjoy fine French cuisine — with a bit of an island twist and plenty of locally sourced ingredients.
This award winning restaurant uses fresh, local ingredients sourced from Maui’s farms, dairies, and island waters; and combines them to produce a globally-inspired menu of delicious dishes. Set in the historic Lahaina Inn along iconic and buzzy Front Street, it’s the go-to place to eat for special occasions in Lahaina.
The farm-to-table approach to upscale restaurant dining is done extremely well here at Merriman's, and its oceanfront setting is the cherry on the cake!
One of the Hawaiian Islands’ most popular and best-established luaus, Old Lahaina Luau is highly regarded for the authenticity of the experience, its engaging hula and musical performances, the copious amounts of delicious Hawaiian cuisine served to guests, and its prime time spot for a picturesque sunset!
With noodles made from scratch daily, as well as a variety of other Asian specialties, you might be surprised at just how affordable the tasty food at Star Noodle is!
