Maui News: Voted Best Vegetarian Food on Maui 2019!

We’re so honored to be recognized as the best of Maui for “Best Vegetarian Food!” Thank you Maui for continuing to show us so much love and support!

“Mana Foods: Best Vegetarian 2019… An integral part of the Maui community, Mana Foods – located in the heart of Paia – is recognized island-wide for its natural, local and organic products.” -Maui News

“It’s also a beloved gathering place where people come in after a day at the beach or getting food to take home where they’ll run into friends or stop to chat in the aisles.”

“In addition, Mana offers an extensive hot and cold food bar, salad bar and soup selection including a robust selection of vegan and vegetarian entrees and side dishes.”

“At the top of Mana Foods’ most popular vegetarian offerings are its baked and barbecued tofu dishes.”

“‘If we don’t put those out every day, we hear it from our customers,’ quips Mana Foods’ ‘Jackie of all trades’ Theresa Thielk, who is also partner/part owner of Mana Foods in addition to the many hats she wears. ‘It’s the first thing we make every morning.’”

“All items available in Mana Foods’ deli are made fresh daily from scratch using the purest ingredients including extra virgin olive oil and gluten-free soy sauce. Mana’s head chef extraordinaire, Anne Gale, has even found a source for vegetarian oyster sauce.”

“‘We keep the ingredients in our vegetarian dishes and bakery items clean and simple by using organic ingredients in all of our prepared food,’ Theilk says. ‘We don’t use anything that’s considered unhealthy, like MSG, which we don’t even allow in the store.’”

“Another thing Mana Foods doesn’t let into the store is anything frozen – that includes soup ingredients and dough for Mana’s pastas and fresh-baked breads, pastries and vegan cookies.” -The Maui News
