A Plate Lunch: 808 Grinds Food Cart

I am in charge of researching a possible multi-island vacation to Hawaii, and to set me in the right mood, besides watching the new Hawaii 5-O on my DVR, I recently stopped at the food cart downtown called 808 Grinds. I’ve always heard good things about this food cart even though this was only my first visit, and I was lucky to get there very early as when I passed by after my lunch, there was quite a line of people waiting.

I’ve been eyeing this cart for a while and was not disappointed. It’s a lot of food in a plate lunch: what you see is the Combo plate with Kalua Pig and Fried Chicken. If you want a  more reasonable amount, get one of the single food orders. But I figure hey, for a few dollars more I can have a plate lunch for both lunch and dinner, so let’s go!

Besides their generous portions, I appreciated their fast service with the freshly fried chicken and the fact that when they call your name because your order is up, he opened it up so I can admire it… and in this case the prep guy suddenly said “wait! Green onion!” and so they pulled it back to make sure the combo came out perfect in every detail. I was tempted on my visit as I saw they were offering Korean Fried Chicken… that will just have to be a future visit.

So onolicious!

  1. The food truck business is a real great thing. I don’t see what’s bad in great diverse tastes, low cost food and great people. I sure prefer it over any fast food restaurant in the local mall.
