Order our Bulgogi taco. It’s made with shaved pork, marinated in ginger with kim chee sauce, jalapeno and asian pear aioli. I love to make it. My second favorite item is the Hamakua Mushrooms with Truffle Oil Pizza. A must in the Monkeypod Kitchen is cilantro, Hawaiian chili peppers and Hawaiian salt. Almost all our dishes have something sourced from Maui, whether it’s grown or caught.
You need a knife that fits in your hand good and must be sharp. This will save you so much time and effort.
Our kim chee at the restaurant is great. It’s just cabbage, salt, carrots, red bell peppers, rice wine vinegar, sambal, ginger, garlic, green onion, fish sauce and kim chee base.
