Anini Beach in Hanalei was our favorite spot to snorkel. We rented all our gear at Pedal N' Paddle, located inside the Ching Young Village shopping center and headed over to have fun in the warm ocean.
I was glad to see that the truck was still parked there after having fun in the water. J and I were up for some grub!
These Hawaiian Sun canned drinks were our favorite treat to drink in Hawaii because it is not only refreshing and delicious! This can was only $1.00. When we shopped at Food Land in Princeville, we bought a couple six packs for less than $4.00. I don't think they sell the six packs here in San Diego. If anyone knows, please do tell! The Strawbery-Guava Nectar flavor is our favorite.
J and I, as much as possible, always share plates where ever we go, because it is cost saving and it helps regulate my portion size. He loves, loves, white rice, so it was a 'no brainer' that I order a plate lunch. Plus, we are in Hawaii.... plate lunch, it is!
The choices of items ranged from different plate lunches... loco mocos, hamburger steak, chicken katsu, in addition to sandwiches, fish tacos, cheeseburgers, fish n' chips, salads, and snacks. The last time we visited a food truck in Hawaii was in Oahu's North Shore at Mackey's Shrimp Truck. I wished they had garlic butter shrimp at this truck, but still the choices here were pretty good.
I ordered the chicken katsu plate lunch ($9.00), which came witn a fried, breaded chicken cutlet, katsu sauce (a Japanese bbq sauce), steamed rice and mac salad. Because it was made on the truck, the chicken was crispy and juicy, straight from the fryer. The sauce added a sweet, bold tang to the katsu. I love mac salad. I wished there was a bigger scoop.
When we visited Anini Beach a second time, the North Shore General Store food truck was not there. *sad face* We were happy to have experienced it the first time!
