No Straws = Zero Waste

No Straws = Zero Waste

We cannot wait for the day when straws are a thing of the past! When you think about it…What is the point? If you’re really that adamant about sipping your drink through one, be adamant about saving the planet and countless marine creatures and wildlife too and bring your own (: You can even get creative and self-expressive when it comes to toting around your personal, individualized straw. Really, the possibilities are endless! Think papaya stem, bamboo shoot, or even a reusable metal or glass straw!

Back To Our Roots: Vegan, Organic and Zero Waste

So many restaurants, so little time…That’s how it can sometimes feel on Maui with all the options for dining out. Here at Moku Roots — small, but mighty —we have set ourselves apart from many of the eateries on the island by FULLY integrating our values and “roots” into our menu and practices.

It's that time of year again!

Perfect Little Paradise

Perfect Little Paradise

Maui is a place that most anything can not only grow — but thrive! When you look around, you’re bound to see a towering mango tree, a rambling lilikoi vine, or a ripe bunch of bananas. Since Maui has a wide range of micro-climates, that translates to a wide range of fruits and vegetables that can be grown locally. 

ACAI BOWLS : WHY WE DONT SERVE THEM AND WHERE TO GET ONE

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.
