What do starving artists and art lovers at Pow Wow Hawaii eat? Tacos! After stints at Chef Mavro, Vintage Cave and Avenue’s Bar & Eatery, award-winning chef Robert Paik has set up a taco truck in the middle of the live mural-painting.

The first day Paik, a California native, served up free street-style tacos to street artists from around Hawaii and the world. Now anybody can buy a taco for $3 each. Paik is offering four choices: carnitas, steak, fish and chicken. The most popular so far? Carnitas. Until Pow Wow wraps this Saturday, Feb. 18, you can find him and his taco truck on Lana Lane from 4 to 10 p.m.

Paik is a winner of the Hale Aina and Ilimi Awards. He says he cooks to make people happy, which good food tends to do. And his tacos are good.
