The biggest Eat the Street yet happened Friday in its new home at the old Fisherman’s Wharf site on Ala Moana Boulevard. In its new space, the event has doubled in size. Last night, about 70 food trucks and stalls served up dishes based on some of the most popular themes — bacon, spicy and garlic — and eaters leisurely ate at designated dining areas. There was also live music and spectacular views of the Friday night Waikiki fireworks.
Friday’s Eat the Street served as the official grand opening of Makers & Tasters Kewalo. StreetGrindz’s new waterfront food park is now open every day, with five food truck and stalls at a time serving up lunch and dinner. That number will soon triple to 15 at a time. On the last Friday of every month, Eat the Street takes over. And when it’s completed this fall, the food park will feature multiple seating areas, bathrooms, a bar deck, stage and parking for 80 cars.
