Embracing Chef Peter Merriman’s passion for regional and sustainable cuisine, Monkeypod Kitchen offers a locally sourced menu using only socially conscious ingredients. The perfect place where foodies, families and beer lovers unite, Monkeypod Kitchen embraces the “Art of Craft” in everything from cuisine, beer, art and decor.
The approachable family friendly menu features hand tossed pizzas cooked in a kiawe wood burning oven, homemade cream pies made from scratch, fresh island fish, grass fed Maui beef and many other favorite island dishes that support local and organic farming. Much of the produce is grown at Kula Farms, their burgers feature Maui Cattle Beef Co. beef, and their saimin noodles are handmade in Paia! Located in Wailea’s Gateway Center, the 6,100 square foot restaurant offers 36 craft beers on tap, an impressive list of culinary cocktails (and many would say, one of the best Mai-Tais on the island), indoor-outdoor seating, sunset views of Kaho’olawe and Lanai, a long curved 30 ft. bar and inviting communal tables where the fun never stops! Hand carved wooden surfboards adorn the beamed ceiling, enriching Monkeypod’s traditional yet innovative spirit. Select local musicians add a festive touch, and truly enhance your night out.
A dining experience unlike any other on Maui, come celebrate the “Craft of Food, Drink and Merrimaking” at Monkeypod Kitchen by Merriman!
