All about Food Trucks

Food trucks are a culinary sensation that has swept the country in recent years. Food trucks have become a staple in Hawaii, just as they have gained prominence in the continental US. Serving as casual eateries, without breaking the bank, these mobile restaurants are a perfect way to experience true island flavors.Learn more by visiting Gettin’ Fresh, Grand Rapids

Try to find a balance between the roving fare of food trucks and the upscale waterfront restaurants during your stay in Oahu, so you can experience all facets of fine Hawaiian cuisine and the savory influences of the Asian neighbors of Hawaii. A especially great lunchtime choice is food trucks, and they are usually parked in central locations. Some of the best from which to sample include:

  1. Haili’s Hawaiian Foods: Haili’s Hawaiian Foods is a very local Hawaiian food truck that Oahu Luaus first started as a catering company. Located underneath a hala tree near the Ward Theater, this truck is open weekdays during lunch hours. Feature dishes include laulau, lomi salmon, pork and chicken, and other seafood dishes.
  2. Elena’s Restaurant: Elena’s Restaurant contains a variety of dishes that are influenced by the Filipino heritage of Head Chef Elena. The location of Elena rotates between key destinations, including the airport, Ko Olina, and Waipio, and the website provides exact information. Some favorite dishes include the omelet and sari-sari of pork adobo fried rice.
  3. Opal Thai: Initially a mobile food truck, Opal Thai is now a casual, stand-alone dining establishment. However, as each dish is personalized by the chef according to your own food preferences and tastes, it offers an outstanding experience. Its low key atmosphere has helped to sustain the environment of the food truck.
  4. Leonard’s Malasadas: Leonard’s Malasadas’ Portuguese influenced flavours can make your mouth water. Originally established as a bakery, with a red and white Malasadamobile, Leonard took his company to the streets. The truck can normally be found all day long on the weekends at the Waikele Center in Waipahu.
  5. Jawaiian Irie Jerk: By bridging the taste difference between Hawaii and Jamaica, Jawaiian Irie Jerk features an uncommon mix of flavours. There are authentic dishes from the owner’s Jamaican hometown on the basic menu. This truck can usually be seen from lunch through dinner hours on Mondays through Saturdays at the intersection of Kalakaua Avenue and Kapiolani Boulevard near the Hawaii Convention Center.
