We arrived in Lihue on Sunday afternoon from Honolulu and made our way to the Courtyard I Kapaa. Since it was after lunch time we went out to explore and see if we could find a quick reasonable lunch meal. We happened to stumble across the Al Pastor taco truck located parked next to Otsuka furniture in Kapaa. We were greeted by an extremely enthusiastic knowledgeable young woman that immediate made you feel that this was a good decision. We ordered 3 Fish Taco Meals and a couple of soft drinks. The lunch arrived quickly and far exceeded expectations. It had 2 Ahi Fish tacos (perfectly seasoned and cooked), Rice, Beans and guacamole.

This meal was so good that we even had to stop by for lunch again on the following Saturday before we headed back to the mainland. This is one adventure you do not want to miss.

As I said, the food truck is located next to Otsuka furniture in Kapaa. They do not appear to open late, but you can call ahead to place your order by phone or to check their service times. Highly recommended!

We shared a couple of fish tacos, the owner had just prepared some fresh Ahi tuna. Delicious meal with beans and rice. Simple fare and delicious. Definitely worth hunting out this food truck when in Kapaa.

I had been trying plate lunches in Lihue, Kapaa, and Hanalei during our stay in Kauai. Next to exploring the tropical beauty and the beaches, it is my favorite hobby. The Trip Advisor reports are accurate; however the map is off by several blocks. This food truck is located on the right just as you leave Kapaa headed north toward Princeville. Although not a plate lunch, these tacos were outstanding. I had a fish taco but what a taco. It was fresh ahi and it was prepared seared—medium rare. The food truck is only open from 11 to 4, so plan your day. Got to book a trip back next year to Kauai just for these!

Thank you to Tacos Al Pastor!!! Ordered Shrimp, Fish, and Chicken tacos. All were very good, although shrimp was my favorite. Rice and beans were done well which reminds one of what REAL Mexican taste is suppose to be. Do not be discouraged that it is a food truck because this is definitely a case of not "...judging a book by its cover."

I didn't want to eat here, but was dragged by the SO. Who would expect good pork tacos on Kauai? But the al pastor tacos are very, very good. This is the real deal. Two tacos were pretty filling, even without the rice/beans. Well worth the stop if you're in Kapaa and hungry. Not a lot of seating, so we walked to the beach to enjoy.
