Sangrita was a Mexican restaurant in the Fairway shops, on the main highway near the entrance to Kaanapali, at 2580 Kekaa Drive. Phone 808-662-6000. It closed in 2017.
The Sangrita menu was divided into guacamoles & salsas, ceviches & botanas, acompanamientos, ensaladas, tacos, platos fuertes (main courses), enchiladas, children’s items, and desserts. The menu included some vegan and gluten-free items. There was also a store called “The Market at Sangrita” in one side of restaurant, where you can buy a carryout snack or meal without the wait.
The name “sangrita” refers to a non-alcoholic drink often served to cleanse the palate between sips of tequila. The sangrita drink at this restaurant contains tomato juice, orange juice, horseradish, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and Tabasco.
This restaurant was much more upscale than Cilantro, the former Mexican restaurant in Lahaina by the same owner, Chef Paris Nabavi. No more paper plates or ordering at the counter, but they still had that delicious rotisserie chicken (plus a lot of new items). There are great wooden tables, beautiful decor, and helpful wait-staff. There are regular and high-top tables, with both indoor and outdoor seating. It was open for lunch and dinner.
