Eat The Street: Pork

If you missed Eat The Street Bacon, then Eat The Street Pork would have been the next best thing for your taste buds. The food trucks were once again out and about for the monthly Eat The Street event in Kakaako. By the way, Eat The Street recently got a nice shout-out from Fodor’s, naming them one of seven great food festivals on Oahu. Way to go!

We finally braved the line and scored a Wow Wow Waffle Wow Wow Aloha Mason Jar (say that three times fast). Joel decided on the Pineapple Li Hing Mui Lemonade. I took a sip, and it indeed had the li hing mui kick that you would expect. I ended up getting the lo-fi Strawberry Lemonade from Beyond Burgers, which I preferred over Wow Wow’s fancy schmancy lemonade fare.

I finally got to try the cute cupcakes from The Girls Who Bake Next Door. Of course, they were serving Double Chocolate Cupcakes topped with Bacon. My intention was to purchase just one cupcake, but ended up leaving with three. The double chocolate cupcakes were flavorful, soft, and moist. The bacon topping added a nice salty touch that blended well with the sweetness of the chocolate frosting.

The most intriguing truck of the evening, and probably the truck with the second longest line (rivaling Wow Wow Waffle), was Hawaiian Twisted Tater. They had the most unusual product of the night with their Tater Sticks. Think potato chips on a stick. They also had the most indulgent dish of the night with their Tater Tray. Think loaded nachos, but instead of nachos, thickly cut potato chips. We ordered the Tater Sticks, and immediately garnered looks and encountered numerous inquisitions of, “eh, where you got dat from?”

And finally, the dish most likely to cause atherosclerosis would have to go to the Smoked Deep Fried Pork Twinkies from the Hula Shrimp Company tent. Just looking at these Smoked Deep Fried Twinkies added five inches to my waistline. Godspeed to all those who shelved out the $7 for these Twinkies.

First up on the agenda was grabbing one of these mason jars!
