History of George's Moturoa
George’s Moturoa was established in July 2018, and is owned and operated by local lad Landon Elder. Landon worked in catering and as a chef in Melbourne for many years before returning home to his birthplace, Taranaki, to follow his dream of opening an eatery.
The name George’s comes from Landon’s grandfather George Manu, who spent his whole life serving others, cooking at the marae, gathering kaimoana, or toiling in the garden to provide for his whanau. Landon has always been inspired by his grandfather and counts himself lucky to have been blessed with this same passion for cooking for others. He delivers this passion through his kai and service at George’s.
Whanau, and especially children, were very important to George. At George’s Moturoa, Landon encourages you to bring in your tamariki to play, make noise and eat real, unprocessed food, just like his grandfather had made for him. If you haven't already done so, bring the kids in for a feed and a play, or just to say hello.
All of the food at George’s Moturoa is made on site from real ingredients. Landon’s ultimate goal is to bring awesome coffee and real food to the real people of New Plymouth. No packets, no short cuts.
