  Photo: Thomas Obungen   Hunger hits me like a blow to the gut as my plane taxis to a gate at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport. Too late for lunch, too early for dinner—my stomach doesn’t care. I swoop up my friend Mahina Chong, and we head out to the edge of Mililani for smash burgers we’ve both been craving. Thankful for light holiday traffic, we make it there in 30 minutes.   On this Good Friday, the white Meat and Buns step van parks in the lot across from the Freedom gasoline station on Kamehameha Highway. You can’t miss the blue and red flags advertising wagyu bu ..read more

  Ariannas Beef With Guasacaca. Photo: Gregg Hoshida   Oftentimes, finding a particular food truck I want to try is like chasing a rainbow. I see it and know generally where it stops, but when I get there, it’s gone until who knows when. Such was the case with Arianna’s Arepas. Open since last summer, I spotted it but didn’t have a chance to try it. Since then, there have been several missed opportunities, until recently. With a new, semi-permanent location at Pearlridge, in the old Sears parking lot, I finally reached the end of the rainbow and hit a pot of Venezuelan gold.   ..read more

Now on Sheridan Street, Smashed Hawai‘i is easy to spot with its retro pink trailer sitting in a lot behind McDonald’s and HMSA.

  Roll With It is a Frolic series about food trucks we’ve seen out and about. We’re tracking them down and trying dishes to bring you the 4-1-1.   Tat-tat-tat-tat-shhhhk, tat-tat-tat-tat-shhhhk. The familiar sound of a butcher’s knife chopping and swiping ingredients across a cutting board draws me in. Here on Waipahu Depot Street across from Waipahu Festival Marketplace, a line of locals waits in front of a small lunch trailer with mouthwatering photos and signs that say “sisig.” Instantly I know what I’m eating for lunch.   The Menu Photo: Gregg Hoshida   At a glance ..read more

Food has been calling us to the neighbor islands lately, and often. So after eating our way across Maui a few weeks ago, we hopped back in search of still more new spots, lingering curiosities and neighborhood favorites.
