The Monkeypod Kitchen is led by Hawaii’s award-winning chef, Peter Merriman. His creativity and locally inspired dishes have paved a culinary path in the islands. Monkeypod Kitchen has a dedication to supporting local craftsman, resulting in fresh and creative dishes and brews made with locally sourced ingredients.
Open-aired seating and a combination of modern and tropically inspired décor create a relaxed but classy atmosphere for your meal at Monkeypod Kitchen. The menu includes a variety of appetizers, pizzas, salads, burgers, steaks, and seafood dishes. Start your meal with a tantalizing appetizer such as the Kauai shrimp and mushroom pot stickers with a citrus shoyu dipping sauce or the poke tacos stuffed with raw ahi. Popular seafood mains include the fish ‘n chips with locally caught mahi-mahi prepared tempura style and seared ahi with a soy-sesame Maui onion sauce. Meat lovers will enjoy the thick cuts of New York steak and side of seasonal vegetables.
Monkeypod Kitchen offers an extensive list of craft brew options, including a variety of drafts brewed locally on Maui and around the Hawaiian Islands. Several pages of wine and specialty cocktails are also available for lingering over drinks after your meal.
