Happy 2013, people! Kakaako rang in the new year as only Kakaako can, with 30 food trucks and street food booths anchoring the Party of the Year at Kakaako Park, plus fireworks every hour on the hour, a ferris wheel, fire dancers, live music, designated family and 21-plus areas and a big blowout fireworks show at midnight.
Were you there? It seemed half of Honolulu was. Here’s the first part, the last Eat the Street of 2012, with six newcomers among the mix. Think acai shakes, fresh-fried donuts with chocolate sauce, squid luau plates, petits fours and okonomiyaki. All under the Kakaako moon.
Next Eat the Street is Friday, Jan. 25, back on the regular lot at Halekauwila and South streets. Theme: Pro Bowl, with every truck cooking up a specialty from an NFL city, no duplicates. See you next year!
