Eat the Weekend….

Went to the Eat the Street event this past Friday at their new location, the former site of Fisherman’s Wharf just down the street. It was great! This food truck pop-up event now has a permanent site and has been rebranded as Makers & Tasters.

They built a deck with a bar and seating areas. They will be building bathroom structures soon.

There is also a stage near the waterfront area. Great place to catch the Friday night fireworks show. On stage this evening was the son of Kapena. He was awesome.

Met up with good friends Kimble and Kim. Here’s a pic of the best seller of the night, Pineapple Fried Rice. I had the fish & chips w/ sriracha-mayo from the Fish Lady. Spilled bacon mochi sauce all over my feet and limped home. Still, it was a fun night with great peeps!

On Saturday, I walked over to the McCoy Pavilion at Ala Moana Beach Park for Greek Festival 2015. It was extremely hot.

McCoy Pavilion is a great venue for any event. There were ongoing performances inside the air-conditioned auditorium.

I enjoyed a gyros and washed it down with an ice cold Mythos. The music and atmosphere were great. It got super crowded, and it was time to leave.

So blessed to live in the Ward-Kaka’ako area….

Eat the Street

Walked over to Eat the Street this late afternoon in Kaka’ako. They have it on the last Friday of each month.

It’s become a popular event for families and the entire community. There’s entertainment, DJs, community organizations, and of course, great food.

There are more dessert trucks popping up. These macarons are from Cake Works.

Tonight I had the pastele stew & gandule rice from Local STOP. It was really good.

For dessert, I had an OnoPop. Yes, it was ono….

Did I mention that the crowd was HUGE? Haha, a lot of fun people there. Good times….

So Ono….

Went to last night’s Eat the Street food truck rally in Kaka’ako. Everything that I ate tasted really good. I had a spicy beef taco, fries seasoned with organic thyme & parsley with a homemade aioli sauce, and an OnoPop for dessert. The OnoPop was absolutely fantastic. It’s a gourmet frozen paleta (popsicle.) I had the Kula Strawberry / Maui Goat Cheese flavor. Here’s a link to their menu of flavors. Here’s my five-star review on Yelp. Go try it. So ono….

I Ate the Street….

We have a food truck rally every last-Friday of the month here in Kaka’ako. It’s a chance to sample lots of tasty dishes in one location.

It attracts a pretty nice crowd. A lot of people walk over after work or from the surrounding neighborhood.

There’s ono food & great entertainment, but mostly food. Here is the link to tonight’s line-up of lunch wagons.

“Hawai’i’s Fried Musubis” and “Fairycakes Hawai’i” were the two most popular trucks. Their lines stretched across the parking complex.

I went with the BBQ Dinosaur Bones from “Why’z” along with a slice from “Inferno’s Wood Fire Pizza.”

Mmm, so good….
