Another Great Meal Just Around The Corner That’s Hot, Delicious, and On Wheels: At Kauai Ono

By Hali Winthrop

When going to a small town like Hanalei, it’s very important that you take your time exploring. Sometimes the smallest, most nondescript places host the best dining experiences. This was definitely the case when I came upon the Kauai Ono food truck located right off Kuhio Highway in Hanalei. If you’re just coming off the beach and looking for something fresh and tasty, this is the spot. Grab a seat at one of the covered picnic tables on the beautiful green lawn, enjoy the cozy spot, and people watch.

I visited Kauai Ono with my mom. I quickly became torn between the chorizo omelet (which they serve all day) and the butterfish wrap. After talking it over with the chef, I decided on the butterfish wrap with white rice, sesame aioli, nori furikake and house slaw. It was definitely the right choice! The fish was cooked perfectly and the crunch of the fresh slaw was an amazing combination. The sauce was nice and light. My mom opted for the spicy pulled pork wrap with chili lime adobo, feta crumbles and cabbage. Spicy was right! My mother and I decided there was so much flavor that I was happy for the feta and cabbage to mellow it out a little.

Afterwards, we indulged in some of the Kauai Ono’s deluxe chocolate chip cookies and Thai Iced Tea; the perfect close to a superb meal. Another great food lesson learned: sometimes the best food experiences are the ones you may walk right by if you’re not looking!
