Eat the Street: It’s a Luau

Share Button

Thousands turned out for Friday’s Eat the Street, a Hawaiian-themed fest featuring 41 food trucks and street food vendors. At this month’s event, a first-birthday celebration for ETS, several vendors completely sold out before the evening’s end. Despite the solid turnout, the lines were manageable and most people had no trouble sampling lots of different menus, including everything from falafels to ribs from five new vendors.

Here’s a look at the eats and the eaters.

Eat the Street: It's a Luau

ETS is one year old and we're celebrating with a baby luau! That means fresh handmade kulolo, kalua pig fries, lilikoi coconut tarts, oh my...

EO: Curious as to the proper pronunciation of "falafel"?

Lots of good food. I ate a Lobster roll, Really tasty, even though I'm allergic to lobster and broke out in a rash.

I gotta say, of all the Eat the Streets I've missed (and, of course, I've missed them all :( ), I think this one will sting the most. Just looking at the line up and all the specials each truck was planning to make, I really wanna be there!

Happy 1st Birthday #eatthestreet!

@Annoddah_Dave for me the arabic pronunciation is a little difficult. americans pronounce it as fuh-LAH-fel; brits as fuh-LAUGH-el.

@WERUreo having been there and grazed my way across the lot, i'd have to agree w/ u. it was the kind of night where we'd try something off someone's plate, and then go buy an order. kept happening.

when u do make it to ets, make sure u stop by the nonstop booth and say hi, ok?

@nonstopmari@808pooh@streetgrindz@dseohonolulu The Cheeseburger truck took up the space where the porta pottys were last month, don't know where they ended up this time. There used to be a map put out before ETS to show where the trucks, booths, etc. were on the lot. I think that needs to make a comeback.

But hey I had a great time as always, wish I could have tried more of the newer trucks' food but some the lines got a little crazy. On to next month and CHOCOLATE!

@nonstopmari Definitely! Tentatively, we want to be in Hawai'i for the fourth of July this year, so we're planning to arrive before the last Friday in June, in hopes that the usual date for ETS still applies. I am determined to make it to Eat the Street this year!
