If I could eat here everyday, I would! The fresh squeezed juices, poi and pork are all amazing. They use really great ingredients for all of the menu items and the staff is really friendly.

Can't beat an excellent picnic table lunch while immersed in the beauty of Hanalei. My husband and I splurged on the daily special - Shoyu Pork Belly and a plate lunch consisting of lau lau chicken, kalua pork, rice, and macaroni salad. Highly recommend both. Cash only.

The food at this "Food Truck" is consistently fresh and good! The local dishes including Lau Lau, Poi, and Kalua Pork are delicious. Smoothies and local drinks are great! I like their ginger lemonade. Excellent foo but could use some help with "The Spirit of Aloha."

Best Kaulua pig ever tasted. If you've never had it, try it here first before you shell out the 100 bucks to try it at a lua. Must have is the Kaulua prok on top of rice with lomi for $4.25. Don't let the cheap price fool you, the ingredients are fresh and the flavors better than most top ten... More

A delicious quik stop for a noon-time lunch. We enjoyed the Truck "Special of the day" that was 2 Taro soft tacos filled with roasted pulled pork and lumi (salmon) salsa. We washed it all down with a yummy "Hanalei" smoothy consisting of mostly mango and NO SUGAR added. This was a wonderful and tasty stop for the day.

The lau lau and kalua pig were awesome! I'm one of the few haoles that likes poi, so I got that instead of the rice. Absolutely declicious and the portions huge. This food truck does it right!

We discovered them on Monday an unfortunately they were closed. When we finally connected with them later in the week, we were thrilled but disappointed at the same time. We didn't have a chance to go back and sample other menu items as we were leaving the next day. The kalua pig special was well prepared and a generous portion... More

I'll start by saying that I tried pina colada smoothies nearly every day on my trip to Hawaii. Hard to go wrong with this simple smoothie, but the taro smoothie in Hanalei was off-the-charts delicious. I had five of them during my week-long visit to the north shore of Kauai. So creamy and so good. My family tried a bunch... More

This is a food truck that specializes in dishes with taro as the main ingredient. Taro is grown in Hanalei and the fields are so beautiful, you need to try it. But go easy until you are used to it. I felt overwhelmed with so much taro on my plate in several forms. They make excellent fresh fruit juice. I... More

Great selection of traditional Hawaiian food. We got the King's plate which is a sampling of almost everything on the menu. Definitely enough for 2 to share. A great stop, right on the side of the road through Hanalei. Limited hours, but make a special trip if you are interested in trying the local fare.
