Hawaii: In Real Life ~ Whatchafillin’

There’s a new truck in town, serving up waffles stuffed with sweet and savory goodness. There’s no question, Whatchafillin’


Posted February 6, 2013 by Melissa Chang

A new food truck hit the streets two weeks ago with a cute name and interesting offerings: Whatchafillin.’ No, there shouldn’t be a question mark there; it’s their statement of a name. If you’ve ever had the Japanese obanyaki/dorayaki, or the Taiwanese chēlún bǐng, this is a riff on that pancake filled with azuki beans or custard. Here, sisters Christie and Tracy use a special waffle batter, and fill it with things like ham, cheese, and caramelized onions; banana, Nutella, and peanut butter; chocolate fudge, marshmallow, and graham cracker; teriyaki beef; and more.

I found them on Ward Avenue outside Sports Authority, but follow them on Facebook or @Whatchafillin on Twitter and Instagram to find out where they are each day, as they don’t have a regular spot yet. You can also catch them this Saturday at Eat the Street Kapolei, and try any of their eight waffles for yourself.

After this, we climbed into the truck to see how they make things and talk story some more. Visit HawaiiIRL.com to see that video! Note, I couldn’t finish my waffles that day so I took it home. They were still pretty good rewarmed the next day.
