Taco'ako Tuesdays

After hearing about Taco'ako Tuesdays about a week or two ago, I've been excited to go. It's basically a Taco Tuesdays with about 5-8 Food Trucks all lined up around Kaka'ako Park (Cooke Street, Oceanside). You could call it a smaller Eat The Street, serving up a lot of Taco stuff. But here, the entrees and tacos are not, I repeat, NOT, $1-2. Beware, you'll want to try a little of everything from each truck like us, and I think we each spent about $15-20. These trucks get expensiveeee!

Taco'ako Tuesdays starts around 11am and goes til about 2pm. Don't go late- some trucks run out of their food and are outta there ASAP! There's also a lot of metered parking around the park, so that wasn't an issue for us. The biggest issue is this- come early and stand in long lines OR go a bit later like 1230-1ish and all the popular food has run out! Take your pick.

We started to get our food at around 1230-1ish (because I was late, I admit it!), and onigiri had run out at Da Ala Cart, no more Pastele Stew at Kai's, and no more shrimp tacos at Xtreme Tacos. BOOOO.

PS- Bring CASH. And lots of it.

Here's a listing of what was there this past Taco'ako Tuesdays: (I was hoping Flipt Out Eats would be there, but they didn't show up!)
