Not every keiki loooves to eat their greens…Sure, some kids will devour anything and everything…Others, well…Parents need to get a bit creative at times. At Moku Roots, we get it and we’re here to help!
They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but what about your veggies? Many people do not get their recommended daily does of vegetables for some reason or another. Here, at Moku Roots — one of Maui’s favorite vegan and vegetarian restaurants — we make it easy to get your fill of greens in a delicious and satisfying way!
Vegetarianism and veganism are unarguably on the upturn. I mean, even McDonald’s is offering a vegan burger now, and the-McDonald’s-of-the-pizza-world — Pizza Hut — is even offering vegan cheese on their pizzas, so things are definitely on the up. Who knows, maybe one day there’ll be more choices on all restaurant menus than just a flipping veggie lasagna or – sigh – a veggie risotto.
Full disclosure: I am not a Vegetarian or Vegan. I am also a meat eating, picky eater so when my friends wanted to meet me for brunch at Moku Roots, Maui’s hot new vegetarian restaurant, I was skeptical. Mind you, I do care about our environment and the idea of fresh ingredients actually grown on Maui is quite appealing.
If you are a vegetarian or just like to eat healthy, Moku Roots is the go-to vegetarian restaurant on Maui. Our ingredients are primarily grown local at Mala ‘Akala Farms just 6 miles away so we are truly farm to table. We are proud of what we do so if you want to know where a specific ingredient comes from, just ask.
Moku Roots’ menu is about 95% vegan and 100% vegetarian - offering local eggs - and operates with the absolute highest integrity of purchasing ingredients with putting locally sourced, organically grown, and minimal packaging above price and convenience always.
