A little bit of Hawaii in Tampa
Has anyone else tried the food truck on South Dale Mabry in Tampa called Da Kine? It's been there a year and serves Hawaiian local food. It's about as authentic as you're going to get around here. See more here:
BTW, any theories on why we don't have more food trucks around here? Miami seems to have a growing food-truck scene.
I've eaten there, wasn't expecting much but was really wowed at how tasty the food was. Wife and I had the combo, I believe it was ribs, pork and chicken? (could be wrong). I recall that the ribs reminded me of Korean BBQ Gal Bi. Comes with rice and perhaps something else.
We grabbed a bite to eat from these guys the other day...
I picked up the combo plate (ribs, chicken, steak, w/rice and macaroni salad), and it was pretty good. The servings were pretty hefty, and the chicken and steak were good. The best part were the ribs. They're sliced thinly (through the bone), and are cooked in a soy/bbq sauce mixture.
We'll be going back to get more grub from them.
