Skip the fancy resort restaurant in favor of a plate of authentic, delicious, local cooking – and it all takes place in a bright teal food truck. Chef and owner Chloe of Trucking Delicious were raised in Hanalei, and she brings fresh local flavors with a gourmet flair.
Grab a spot at one of the picnic tables near the truck and be prepared to be amazed. The menu changes frequently, but there are a few must-haves if they are available. Bite into large, succulent seafood with an order of the garlic shrimp and rice with sides such as lomi lomi salmon and local-style macaroni salad. If you want to be sure to try the garlic shrimp or the also popular sweet and spicy coconut shrimp, get there early – they often sell out. Wash your meal down with their famous dragon fruit limeade – a bright pink, refreshing drink with the perfect blend of tart and sweet. There are other food trucks located here as well, making it a social area bustling with both locals and tourists. Be sure to bring cash, as credit cards are not accepted.
