Rolling with the Raw Bar at Three’s Bar & Grill!

Our raw bar is right there to greet you when you first walk in the doors at Three’s, and our talented sushi chefs will welcome you, as they craft around 100 sushi rolls and shuck up to 100 oysters every single day!  Those oysters are flown in fresh from the Pacific Northwest on a daily basis, and we are fortunate to get plenty of fresh fish on the regular from around Hawai‘i and Japan.

Stellar sushi all starts with the rice, which is mixed with rice wine vinegar, sugar and salt.  Our chefs craft three big batches of sushi rice each day, as you’ll see in our video with Chef Travis, featuring raw bar chefs Brady and Al.  We store our rice with kombu (Japanese kelp), then serve the rice at room or body temperature, which is the ideal way to go.

“You want really cold fish, you want the warmth and texture of the rice, and the contrast of that is what makes a real good bite of sushi,” explains Travis.  “So these guys keep their rice in a cooler up on their station, which retains the heat.”

Our sushi menu has a fun mix of custom and traditional offerings.  We feature more than 15 specialty sushi rolls, along with 15 hand rolls and 10 options for nigiri.  We also have fresh uni (sea urchin) brought in daily, and go through about a tray of it a day; that’s how popular this delicacy is!

And it doesn’t end there.  Our sushi chefs craft a special of their own design from the raw bar each night, combining their creativity with what’s been brought in fresh!  Look for the delicious photos on our Instagram and Facebook pages!

Craving sushi for lunch??  Our chefs are there for you!  Three’s raw bar opens every day of the week at 11:30, plus we offer some great sushi deals during our happy hours, from 3 to 6 p.m. and 9 to 10 p.m.!  So roll up to the raw bar and see what all the buzz is about!

 

 

 

Three’s Gives Maui a “Grand Taste” at AgFest

A “shrimp french fry.”  Well, that’s more of a nickname.  It was technically a little fancier than that for our offering at Maui County Agricultural Festival’s Grand Taste on Saturday, April 1.

“Seared Kaua’i prawn — on Kaua’i, they practice some of the most sustainable shrimp farm operations around,” explains Chef Travis, who crafted Three’s tasting menu for the event.

As an added bonus, we fried the prawn heads, a delicacy some people love to crunch on.  The dish also included a purée with Hāmākua mushrooms and Waihe‘e Valley Plantation macadamia nuts (learn more in our Know Your Farmers video) along with a light salad of parsley and celery leaves, salmon roe, bacon and arare.

For the Grand Taste at Maui Tropical Plantation, we were among 12 booth stations featuring locavore chefs who partnered with  farms and producers throughout Hawai‘i.  For a minimal ticket price of $30 to $40 in support of the Maui County Farm Bureau, guests got to experience farm-to-table cuisine at its freshest and finest.

“It’s a two-hour event where you get to try some really phenomenal food from some great chefs around the island,” Chef Travis says. “People get to see how the chefs incorporate ingredients into their dishes and makes something really cool.”

Our prawn dish was nearly 100% locally-sourced, which is a priority for us at Three’s, and of course at our sister eatery, Fork & Salad in Kīhei. Be on the lookout for more videos, where we’ll take you through our entire adventure at AgFest!  Mahalo for supporting local!!
