This place makes the best laulau plate. The laulau is perfectly salted, lomi slamon is great and I love the twist on there mac salad, it has bacon and small taro chunks. My kid's love it and its priced right. (this is a lunch wagon, cash only)

This was a great little stop recommended by "Kauai by Stephanie" and it was delicious! My daughter got one of the creamiest taro blend smoothies I've ever tasted and I had the tacos. The tacos were flavorful and actually way more food than I expected. One would have been plenty for a light meal. One word of caution–give that Hawaiian... More

I purchased poi from the truck, put it into a freezer bag, with ice packs and brought it back to New York City with me! I was already turned on because of its nutritional value. But after researching poi, I am stuck on it!

This food truck is located on the right as you enter Hanalei. Try the LauLau and the Kalua pork bowl with poi and lomilomii salmon and you'll be eating as the ancient Hawaiians did. If you're lucky enough to be there on a day when they have kulolo, a sweet bread pudding- like desert, go for it! It's the real... More

Fantastic, authentic local food, large servings and great value for money. This was the nicest meal we had during our 2 weeks in Hawaii! Such a great place to sit and eat too- there are amazing views of the mountains from the tables beside the food truck. Definitely worth a visit!

Want a delicious plate lunch? This is it. Great local food. Be prepared to sit outside (there is some covered seating but it's a food truck). Try the kalua pork or the lau lau (tasty meat wrapped in taro leaves) and, of course, the poi.

Get here early, the locals love this place and the lau lau may be gone early. Everything we've tried was excellent and the servers were always smiling. Definitely a must try.

If you are looking for a true taste of Hawaii then the Hanalei Taro and Juice Co is the place to stop. All of their produce is locally sourced and you will get an authentic "plate lunch" experience. The Lau Lau Chicken is wrapped in taro leaves and baked is moist and delicious. With the kalua pork don't be afraid... More

This is a clean food-truck type establishment with a large covered space for eating, with tables and benches. It is located along the Main Street through Hanalei in Kauai, near shops and restaurants. Their offerings are delicious, and the roasted kalua pork is very good. Many fresh blended drinks and shakes are also available. Give it a try!
