Delicious, Local, Fast, Gluten Friendly

We stayed in Hanalei, Kauai and the food truck stand with picnic benches was a 5 minute walk from our cottage. Only open for lunch & closed on Sundays. Why did we only come here once for lunch!? I have Celiac disease, so I wanted to seek it out as they are gluten friendly. We ordered at the food... read more

This is the first time I have tried the Hanalei Taro food truck. They were at the Garden Fair at the College. The line was at least 10 deep and I did wait almost 20 minutes in line. I ordered the 3 of the barbecue kalua pork sandwiches for $7 each, and 3 of the special plates of Shoyu Okinawan... More

We stopped here for lunch while on our photo tour. We'd been once before a couple years ago. The staff was super-friendly, the food very reasonably priced and plentiful, and absolutely delicious. We both had the kalua pig, and our guide had a special which was a curry beef. It's not much to look at, I'll admit - but if... More

Stopped by for a smoothie and a quick snack before heading back down south. Didn't have the plate lunch as we already had lunch but saw a few people get it and looked legit. Our smoothie was really well done and thick. We also bought a couple mochi cakes and those were awesome!! We got the cakes @ $1 a... More

Great authentic Hawaiian cuisine. This food cart has some of the best kalua pork we have every had. The tomato salsa dish that had fish in it was amazing. I had a great tangello juice that was to die for. A must visit in Hanalei!

We loved the food here- fresh and delicious! A lot of food for your money as well! We had kalua pig with poi and rice. Came with a piece of taro mochi cake and mac salad. We also had some of the juices they make. All very delicious and unique to us, being visitors. The staff was very friendly. No... More

Run by the sixth generation of a local Japanese family, the farm and taro operations are fascinating! The taro plant is used to make the popular side dish known as poi, but is also used in many other food dishes. The planting/growing/harvesting process is quite interesting, as is the history of this property and farm. The current farm manager is... More

We had the 'Mix Plate' which was Kalua pork, rice (or poi), shredded chicken (or pork), a small piece of taro cake, a small portion of taro pasta, and a nice local fruit juice. $12. Good value and good food!

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