The Hawaiian Islands shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, who gathered by the shore to dive for the delicious mahi-mahi, coconuts, and grilled pineapple growing beneath its crystal waves. Transport yourself to this legendary culinary region with today's Groupon: for $18, you get a Hawaiian meal for two at Moki's Hawaiian Grill in Taylorsville (up to a $39 total value). The meal for two includes:
- Two salads or sides (up to a $10 value)
- Two entrees (up to a $21 value)
- Two shakes or desserts (up to an $8 value)
Moki's menu erupts with a swell of authentic Hawaiian dishes, scratch-made sauces, and tropical shakes. Dive into the island-themed feast with a salad of the Hawaiian variety, topped with chicken, cabbage, carrots, noodles, and an optional suckling pig, or feast on side dishes ranging from manapua—white buns stuffed with barbecue pork—to bowls of white, brown, or fried rice. Taste buds giddy to mingle with an authentic Hawaiian entree can say aloha to such mixed plates as kalua pork, teriyaki beef, and the Ohana plate, an archipelago of chicken, mahi-mahi, and shrimp. Shake up moments between chewing and performing Verdi's requiems on the ukulele with the tropical flavors of a pineapple shake or a maui mango smoothie, or extinguish the lingering flavors of a savory entree with the sweet tones of macadamia chocolate cake or malasada––deep-fried donut-like confections.
Moki's supplements its casual dining room with a charming gift shop of island-inspired goodies and souvenirs, as the restaurant's drive-thru supplies visitors-on-the-go with tasty takeout. The tropical eatery takes its name from the Hawaiian mokihana tree, a native citrus tree that has produced many island essentials, such as cloth, perfume, firewood, and two Jimmy Buffett albums.
