Eat the Street Kakaako (1 of 52)
Maybe you know the back story. How last month's Eat the Street food truck rally was a first for this town, how 1,200 people overwhelmed the dozen trucks and vendors in that tiny lot on Kapiolani and told organizer StreetGrindz.com that Hawaii was ready for more.
But did you know last night's numbers surpassed most mainland street food rallies? Eat the Street Kakaako flew off the charts. And if some lines were long, it was sane, people, it was mellow, and ultimately so yum. Totally off the charts.
