Wordless Wednesday: Tacos al pastor in Kauai

We were visiting the Hawaiian island of Kauai last week for my sister’s wedding and look what we found: A taco truck with tacos al pastor! They had a proper trompo and everything. We didn’t get a chance to stop and eat there because we either were too early, too late or just passing through Kapa’a on our way to Lihue or Poipu to eat somewhere else. They were always busy when we passed by during business hours, so I figure they must be pretty good. I took it as a sign that we need to go back to visit again!

    My family and I stopped here, they had fresh Ahi for the fish tacos, they were so delicious, you get two nice ahi filets, pico de gallo, shredded lettuce and chipotle creama, with rice, beans, guacamole.($11) The creama is amazing.The al pastor tacos were out of this world, you get two nice size tacos topped with pico de gallo and avocado sauce, and rice and beans for only $10.They had the best service also, the owners wife runs every order out to you, that’s awesome, five stars to them, this should be first on your list of things to do when you visit Kauai again!
