About the Monkeypod Kitchen by Merriman
Monkeypod Kitchen by Merriman is a place where foodies, beer lovers, and families escape the stresses of their day-to-day lives by enjoying an ice-cold beer and a great meal while surrounded by people who consider them honored guests and friends.
Our restaurants are founded upon a passion for craft and we are dedicated to mastering the craft of food, drink, and merrymaking…with Aloha! Our menu features fresh island fish, hand tossed pizzas from our kiawe wood-burning oven, and homemade cream pies made from scratch.
Thirty-six craft beers are on tap, each served at an optimal twenty-nine degrees. Our culinary cocktails feature unique ingredients such as acai spirit, coconut water, and Kula lavender. Our passion for craft also extends to our diverse wine list, which emphasizes sustainability, drinkability and fun.
Come join us at our communal table, with friends old and new, and
learn what it’s like to share our “Lucky Live Hawaii” story.
Local Ingredients Sourced from Hawaiis Farms
Our chef driven concept is led by the classically trained, award winning, Chef Peter Merriman. Peter is a culinary pioneer and one of the founders of Hawaii Regional Cuisine. He has always been inspired by the people and products around him and this spirit led the movement to look at food in Hawaii in a new light.
Peter thought: why use fruits and vegetables grown thousands of miles away, picked when green, ripened artificially, and then shipped halfway across the world? Why not work with local farmers to attain the freshest, highest quality ingredients possible. This not only makes food taste better, but also promotes the success of the local community. And that is exactly what Peter did.
Monkeypod Kitchen by Merriman embraces this passion! Each item on the menu demonstrates our commitment to high quality, locally sourced ingredients and perfect execution.
