Outrageous pork at Eat the Street

Share Button

It was mega-pork time in Kakaako Friday night, dozens of trucks and street food booths selling everything pork. Bacon pop tarts, pork belly bao buns, maple bacon gelato, pork-stuffed malasadas — and these in the photo gallery below, highlights of the theme.

For the second year running, ETS Pork Fest again proved to be one of the most popular themes of the year. If you missed it, don’t feel too bad: Next month ETS celebrates Oktoberfest, with promises of cheese and all kinds of sausage. Same time, same place: Sept. 28, always the last Friday of the month, from 4 to 9 p.m. at Halekauwila and South streets. See you there!

Did the burrito contest happen late?  I was there until about 8 and heard it may or may not happen 'cause they didn't have enough contestants or something like that.  Oh well I missed it.  Anyway the BLT Frites from Street Frites were good, also really liked Fairycakes' Pork Pop Tart and Aloha Pops' Piggy Pop.  Will be interesting to see how many vendors participate in next month's theme...

EO;  Will the organizers ever require vendors to set up "snake lines"  so that it makes it less of a hassle to move around or cutting through lines?
