Eat the Street
I'm planning to go to Eat the Street for the first time tomorrow in Mililani. Does anyone have any food truck recommendations? I am not at all familiar with this scene.
Doesn't look like Camille will be there.
Here is the vendor list for Mililani:
Cooking Fresh For You
Girls Who Bake
Hawaiian Waffledog Co
Hawaiis Fried Musubi
Island Sandwich Creations
Kettle Corn Hawaii
Na Ono Corn
No Ka Oi Cookie Co
Pt. Suisse Crepes
Tin Hut BBQ
Wow Wow Waffle
Pop Pop Donuts
I like Baja Style, Il Gelato, Ono Pops, Sweet Revenge but I haven't tried a lot of the others. The longest lines always seem to be at the Deep Fried Musubi truck and Xtreme Tacos for what it's worth. I would say go with what looks good. Most places have samples out so you can see the dishes. I think Kohnotori might be doing yakitori skewers which I would go for since I love their restaurant. Hope it's an enjoyable day!
are the ono pops good? i have heard great things, but to me, they sound like strange flavors for popsicles.
also paul's poppers sound great, but i am afraid i'll end up eating a whole bunch and sabotage my diet. (agnes' malasadas were exempt, as we were conducting an important experiment). we will try them eventually, they are in our neighborhood.
i drive past it when it's parked across from the blaisdell in the car dealership lot with some other food trucks, but it's always closed. do you know their hours? and how good are the musubis? the strange anime style creatures on it make me dubious of the food.
my sister had a fried musubi atop her wedding cake and cut a piece for her hubby instead of cake. they got it at some store, though, not the food truck.
Thank you to everyone who replied. I tried Ono Pops and thought it was very good, with a really great selection of flavors. The Soul Patrol truck was there, and while the prices were a bit on the high side, the food was delicious. Kohnotori, unfortunately, was pretty middle of the road. We also had a mini Hawaiian plate from Laverne's that was really good, with some of the tastiest chicken long rice I've ever had.
I had the crackseed lemon peel pop and a taste of the butter mochi pop, both were very tasty. I had the seafood jambalaya from Soul Patrol, and others in our party had the gumbo with the works (with cornbread and a piece of fried chicken) and the sparerib plate with collard greens. All of the dishes garnered rave reviews, with the fried chicken, even not freshly fried, ranking higher than the chicken that came with the fried musubi.
Glad to hear you enjoyed the interesting onopop flavors. My mom loves the ume thai basil and the mango habanero lime. My favorite is the kulolo though.
My favorite dish from Soul is the braised pork shank when they have it. The brisket sandwich is good too but they don't have it all the time either. The chicken, gumbo, and jambalaya are good as well. Luckily their store is downtown so I don't have to seek it out from the food truck.
Sorry to hear that Kohnotori wasn't that good.
has anyone had keawe pizza? on yelp i read that they are usually on kapahulu ave in the afternoons, where we often pass. $8 for a whole pizza, which consists of 4 slices. do they do eat the street in town?
