Lota Trucks

At least thats what I think it's called. At the corner of Kapahulu and Winam, where the service station used to be. There are about 8 trucks in operation now ranging from Plate Lunch to Saimin to BBQ to Taco's to Crepes. Today was Saturday, most of them were operational by 11:30, although the Taco Truck wasn't open till 12:30. Most of them stay open toll around 8pm.

I started with a BBQ pork bun, $6. This is the same operator as the one at Lowes and another location at the Swap Meet. Pretty tasty. I ordered it spicy, and it actually had a bit of a kick. The guy said the menu was still limited until they get a full size truck there, right now it's just a trailer.

Next I tried the Taco Truck, Taco Cabana I think. For $4.50 I got two small (palm size) steak tacos and a soda. If i hadn't had the bbq bun first i would have wanted 3 or 4, but thats still a pretty good price. They have tacos, burritos, and enchiladas. I was disappointed that they only had steak (chopped into a small dice) but it was very nicely prepared and served with a healthy amount of cilantro and sauce. Just the right amount of burn. I will definitely be back to try the burrito or enchilada sometime soon.

Parking is somewhat limited, although there were always a couple of open spaces when i was there (an unpaved/gravel lot with no marked stalls.)
