Moku Roots has some very delectable, signature menu items that are available every time you come in…We also change up our menu everyday too! Not only is change the spice of life, but since we are committed to providing the Maui community with the freshest organic ingredients, whatever is in season and available greatly dictates what foods we serve too!
That’s right! The notoriously horrible, deadly, and non-biodegradable substance is FINALLY — and rightfully — going to be outlawed on Maui! Effective December 31, 2018, any restaurant or other business distributing products made from styrofoam will be help accountable for their short-sighted actions!
Let’s take a moment to talk about kalo — also known as taro. Taro is one of the earliest cultivated plants in the islands, and is therefore one of the most important resources to Hawaiians. Adding to its significance, the taro plant and its many components can be utilized in a wide variety of ways. Since the plant loves the growing conditions on Maui, and is very versatile, nutritious, and organic, it has become a key player in the green and vegan/vegetarian platform of Moku Roots as well!
When designing our menu at Moku Roots we did so with two main considerations.
One, we wanted to create recipes based around Maui grown produce and re-design classic recipes to feature local ingredients instead of whatever store bought ingredients they typically contain. The taro burger is a great example of the former and our yuca-based (and garbanzo free.. where on earth are garbanzos from anyways??) falafel is one of the latter.
