Food trucks and lunch wagons that participate in the monthly Eat The Street serve everything from Korean tacos to malassadas burgers to even chocolate-covered bacon.
But where’s the fried noodles and rice?
Well, this Friday two friends and former roommates will unveil a new food concept — everything made in a wok.
Lava Wok — in a tent, not a food truck — is a new vendor to Eat The Street — and likely to your palette.
Friends Michelle Van and Maureen Ackharath took their favorite recipes — with a few tweaks — and created a simple menu bursting with flavor.
They will be serving curry fried rice, spicy fried noodles, filled won ton desserts and soy milk in a bag a la street vendors in Vietnam. And you can only — for now — find their creations at Eat The Street.
“We thought this would be different,” said Ackharath, 28, a graduate of Kaimuki High School.
Here’s what they’ll be serving at Friday’s Eat The Street:
Eat The Street: Eat Local, 4 to 9 p.m. Friday, 555 South St. in Kakaako
Happy Fuud pixs Friday!
That looks sooooo oooonnnnoooo!
Happy Aloha Friday!
It is. I’m actually going to eat there again tonight! 🙂
OK, typical male moment. Your friends are flat out, no holds barred, good looking. Oh, and the food looks great too 🙂
You’re such a guy…
I know that you have done stories about “Rainbow Drive In” in the past. However, I just wanted to mention that Sunday, October 2, 2011 is the exact day of the “50th Anniversary” of “Rainbow Drive In”! According to an article in the Honolulu Star Bulletin a few years ago, they opened for business on October 2, 1961 https://archives.starbulletin.com/2000/04/05/features/story1.html
Maybe you could stop by on Sunday and take a “Happy Shot” of that great establishment.
It IS exactly the anniversary of Rainbow’s! COOL! Thanks for letting me know!
Ok, now you’ve done it. I’m hungry and must eat lunch. I find myself wishing I had more than strawberries and fage in the fridge.
How do the heck do you stay so skinny 🙂
