ISO Great Food Trucks on Oahu and Maui
Clean and great food are the key.
I have heard people swear by Giovanni's on Oahu, but others say it is overpriced and you eat amidst a sea of flies.
re: Beach Chick
Itryalot, I have to disagree a little bit with Beach Chick on Jawz tacos. If you are at Big Beach and you want something right there, the tacos can hit the spot. But mostly because they really your only choice. I wouldn't make a special trip for them. The tacos are full of white rice and the fish is shredded. They are a bit overpriced. You can get much better fish tacos at Coconuts in Kihei or Fish Market Maui in Honokowai.
I've been hearing about a Korean taco truck in Kihei on Maui lately. Can't recall the name, maybe Gogi? Its supposed to be pretty good. Also look for roadside huli huli chicken stands.
If you go to Trip Advisor and do a search of the forums you will find lots of threads on food trucks in the Oahu and Maui forums. Oh, I recognize your name from TA, so maybe you already found your food trucks! Happy eating!
My favorite shrimp truck on the north shore is Macky's... It's clean and has running water to wash your hands after meal.
See my review on this subject.
there are two food trucks on the mountain side of kapahulu on oahu: magoo's pizza and blue water shrimp.
camile's on wheels is really really ono, but i think she was too good and got booked for catering so much that the truck is on standby.
Mobile pizza vendor Outrigger Pizza for dinner last night. Smaller Naples inspired types of pies, around $10. Lilikoi Pork & Sausage with Mushroom hit the spot. Usually don't do pizza on Maui since we are from NYC but this was good. They rotate locations regularly--web site has the schedule.
It's been my experience in other cities that the great food trucks go where the office workers are and do a brisk lunch business, in order to survive, so on Maui they are usually far from where the tourists are. Perhaps the reason why Crying Thaiger, Gogi BBQ, others have closed.
