First on our radar is the legendary “Big Monster Sushi,” a food truck tucked away under the banyan tree in old Koloa Town. With a menu that boasts a fusion of Hawaiian and international flavors, this truck is a culinary oasis. Picture yourself sinking your teeth into a succulent one of their large sushi rolls or taking a bite into a fresh poke bowl. If you are a vegan, they have a variety of veggies on the menu to choose from, the veggie sushi rolls are the best!
The “D Green’s BBQ” truck, adorned with vibrant pig, instantly transports us to the world off BBQ. The charismatic owner, a surfer-chef named Darren, welcomes us with a laid-back aloha spirit and introduces us to his unique creations. As I approached, I could see flames leaping from the grill, dancing with the succulent cuts of meat. The master behind the grill, a culinary warrior, skillfully wielded his spatula and tongs, creating a mouthwatering symphony of sizzles and cracks. Smoke billows from its grill, wafting through the air, and teasing your nostrils. The aroma of slow-cooked, tender ribs marinated in a secret sauce is irresistible. One bite, and you’re transported to the heart of the Deep South, where BBQ is a way of life. The smoky flavor, the melt-in-your-mouth texture, and the tangy BBQ sauce make it a feast fit for a carnivorous king. With a flourish, he served me juicy, perfectly marinated ribs that melted in my mouth, leaving behind a trail of smoky goodness. We can’t resist trying the lychee wood smoked pork, chicken and beef potato salad and delicious coleslaw. The Hawaiian BBQ pulled pork sandwich, topped with tangy pineapple salsa and nestled between fluffy buns. The explosion of flavors will transport you to a tropical paradise with every bite. Each bite is a symphony of flavors, with the tender pork melting in our mouths, perfectly complemented by the sweet and tangy smokey taste. It’s like riding a wave of flavors, a true celebration of local BBQ cuisine. Classic BBQ with brisket, links, baked beans, and a slice of bread. Darren knows how to BBQ. Ribs that fall off the bone, pulled pork, tangy and spicy BBQ sauce, and homemade hot sauce makes this joint a fan favorite on Kauai.
