food memories at Maka by Mana ~ Maui, Hawaii

Our week in Maui wouldn't have been complete without trying out the local restaurants...and we sure found many outstanding ones that made our stay more memorable.

Maka by Mana located in the colorful town of Paia easily became our favorite. We went to this raw food place four times :-) Very fresh and amazing local fruits and vegetables were the main draw here combined and blended in a way that was surprisingly so flavorful. The cool interiors of the restaurant, shown below.

At Maka by Mana, our first introduction to the world of raw food was unforgettable. Shown above, this savory open-face breakfast sandwich with warm sesame waffle bread was served with coconut cream cheese, avocado slices and capers. The classic acai breakfast bowl was a hit with us as well as well as the matcha green tea latte that my husband ordered every time. Shown below, our light lunch with spiralized beets and carrots salad and live falafels which were served with kale and dehydrated wraps.

The busy town of Paia was along the way to our rental apartment so we passed it everyday we were in Haiku where we stayed. For us, this restaurant was one of the best reasons to keep going back to Paia despite the traffic we had to deal with there. That just goes to show how much we enjoyed this restaurant as we really don't have patience when it comes to traffic :-) Parking was challenging but we later discovered their exclusive customer parking conveniently located just across the restaurant.
