Germaine’s “backyard-style” luau offers a more intimate setting and a casual atmosphere. The drums and sounds of island music will do their job to get you into the right mood. Audience participation is encouraged throughout the evening with the women being taught the traditional “Hukilau Hula” and the men trying their hips at the Tahitian “Ami.”
After the impressive Imu ceremony, in which the kalua pig is unearthed from the traditional rock-filled underground oven, followed by a prayer to the ancient gods, the buffet is opened. Help yourself to the multi-course Polynesian buffet that will make your taste buds dance. You’ll find traditional island delicacies as well as American favorites.
This is your chance to taste the island staple Poi, a paste made of cooked and pounded taro roots. Other foods include Kalua Pig, Lomi Lomi Salmon, Sauteed Island Fish with Sweet Chili Tartar sauce, Teriyaki Beef, Chicken Long Rice, Pulehu Chicken, White Rice, island veggies, fresh fruits, Tossed green Salad, Macaroni/Potato Salad, Pineapple Coleslaw and Sweet Dinner Rolls. You definitely have to try their Haupia pudding, which is made out of coconut milk. The drinks are good and plenty as well. Try the popular Mai Tai or Blue Hawaii. You’ll also find a large selection of alcohol-free beverages, tea and coffee.
After dinner the feast for your eyes begins. Enjoy a fabulous Polynesian revue featuring some of the most talented island performers who will take you on a musical journey throughout the Pacific. You’ll see the native Hula, Tahitian drum dances and the exciting Samoan fire-knife dance.
Germaine’s Luau is truly “too good to miss”. It has even been featured on ABC’s “Good Morning America”, Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-ins 7 Dives” on Food Network, and acclaimed “America’s Best Luau” in the book of “America’s Best 100!”
