There aren’t that many times we’ve thought about going vegetarian, but if all non-meat food tasted as good as it does at Moku Roots, we’d at least start considering it more seriously. This Lahaina Gateway Plaza restaurant’s menu is almost entirely vegan and changes often based on what’s being harvested from the co-owner’s nearby farm. It usually includes things like their famous taro burgers, seitan-based chikn n’ waffles, zoodle pad thai, and marinated coconut-meat imitation bacon.
