Lindsey and her crew redefined taro for me. Try any smoothie with taro and the ti leaf pork wraps are great!

We stopped here for lunch one day in Hanalei while on a photo tour and loved it so much we stopped by again when we saw the truck at the farmer's market. The pork tacos and ginger soda were very tasty and reasonably priced. I also had a taro dessert that was very tasty. Give it a try!

This is one of the best meals we had while on Kauai. Never eaten off of a food truck before. We parked in a lot behind the truck, so I was able to get a peek into the kitchen as we came around to the front. Very clean. We had the combination platter. Every thing was very good and hot.... More

Ate here on a recommendation of a local. Overall, the food was good, especially the pork tacos. The smoothies are on the higher side given it is an independent food truck (around Starbucks pricing), but pretty good. Definitely should check out at least once (maybe more if you have time).

I took the taro burger with hummus and it was really delicious. Portion worths the price, and the taste is delicious. Also tried the tasty and perfect kulolo. Place is nice and simple, like i like. Easy for vegan.

We had asked a few locals for their favorite hawaiian bbq spot and this place was always the answer. The main caveat we heard was that it was lunch only and not open very many hours. This place was great. My wife ordered the Big platter which had kalua pork, rice, and mac salad. I ordered the Mix platter which... More

What a great place to ride out a downpour. We thoroughly enjoyed the smoothie, taro burger and kalua pork plate. The kauai hot sauce for the pork was a great addition. Glad we stopped when we did, the place was closed due to the impending hurricane the rest of our stay.

Everyone at Hanalei Taro & Juice Company is very patient, kind and willing to explain the local fare to tourists. I had heard so many bad things about poi that I was a bit scared to try anything with taro in it. My Laulau chicken was yummy! The taro leaf had a taste very similar to collar greens (which I...
