The provided selection of protein options are parallel to classic meals of our islands, fully flavored with natural cured seasoning of Hawaii. Seasonal staple of ulu ( breadfruit) picked fresh from our Grove, or kalo (taro) harvested from the lo’i (taro patch) of East Maui, or ‘uala (sweet potato) from local Hana Farmers.
