The folks at the surf school recommended this food truck for lunch. I had the Kalua pig plate which was excellent. My wife wanted chicken but they were out. She had a turkey sandwich that didn't look like anything special.

Just enjoyed the Taro Mochi Cake with a cup of coffee. Ice is so good if we just have a chance to relax and enjoy a treat like this. Next time I'll try the taro smoothie.

We are glad to eat at this food heaven. It is a truck food but crazy good. DEFINITELY HAWAIIAN food. Chicken wrapped in taro leaves, taro cake, poi etc. everything is awesome. Highly recommended

I was lucky to find this food truck, as I was searching for some local eats, which was surprisingly difficult to find. I was very pleased with the result. The food served is all locally-sourced, freshly-prepared and delicious. The owner was enjoyable to talk to and kind enough to educate us on the different dishes (how they're customarily prepared and... More

I had the taro burger, which was decent, and taro smoothie, which was pretty good. Taro is a sorta strange texture, so if you are a "texture" person, (i.e., don't like mushrooms, eggplant, mochi) beware. I found the burger decent, but nothing to write home about, but smoothie was fresh, and made me feel good. We also ordered a turkey... More

I stopped at this food truck to try some local food. I had the combo plate that had several items on the plate. There was rice and macaroni salad and both were fine. There were two meats on the plate. The first was barbeque pork and it was moist and flavorful. The other meat dish was taro leaf wrapped pork... More

When I got there I was told that there is no chicken left, so I had to get pork ( I wasn't happy about it) I got the pork in taro sauce, veggie burger and a berry smoothie, to be honest just the smoothie was ok. The sandwich less then average , the pork I have trashed since I didn't... More

I highly recommend the lau lau platter. The pork wrapped in taro leaves was delicious. And a lot of food for 10$. Next time I'll try their smoothies.

This is remarkably good food and a must stop for us when we visit. The lau lau and the pulled pork are great. Try a Taro smoothie or taro bread. I personally like their ginger soda, too hot for some, but that's how I like it. We have eaten here at leased a dozen times and never been disappointed in... More
