Moku Roots is a new vegan and vegetarian restaurant now open in West Maui at Lahaina Gateway Shopping Center and it features food sourced from local Maui farmers and an eco-friendly attitude.
This brand new restaurant actually began as the very popular Maui Tropsicles popsicle business, then the owners realized they had bigger ideas and expand. Erica and Alexa are ambitious in that they run the restaurant, take the orders, and prepare some of the meals as well.
They are also committed to taking care of the environment. You will not find any plastic cups, silverware, or to go boxes in this eatery. If you dine in, the water is served from large glass bottles into glass cups that are found at the front of the establishment. If you want your food to go, you can take a wrap or sandwich in taro leaves, or you can pay a little more for a reusable tin that you bring back each time you patronize Moku Roots.
All the food is vegan or vegetarian, packed with healthy nutrients and, most importantly, is exceptionally flavorful. Moku Roots is open every day from 10:30AM to 8PM for lunch and dinner and serves brunch from 9AM to 2Pm on the weekends.
