Steaking New Ground

Lei ChicThirty-four minutes into your lunch hour. All you’ve swallowed is bitterness, after:

· 15 minutes looking for your car on the 4th floor
· 10 minutes finding it on the 6th floor
· 7 minutes looking for your keys in your massive work bag
· 2 minutes swearing after finding them in your pocket

You should’ve just brown bagged it.

And then, the final straw (if you only had even a soda!): you pull up to Kawaihao Street ravenous for Sean Priester’s buttermilk fried chicken, only to find some how the Soul Patrol food truck has rolled away.

Created for the Food Network Canada’s new show Eat St. (sorry it’s not showing in the U.S.), the free application tracks any mobile lunch wagon that signs up for the service. Select a city from Aiea to Honolulu, Kailua, and even Kapolei, and the app will map out the wagons near you. No more driving to Kaimuki for a Melt grilled cheese if the truck is on King Street today.

It even hooks you up to your favorite eatery’s twitter feed so you can make sure it hasn’t made like a backyard barbeque and pulled up steaks. Which means you’ll never have sour grapes for lunch again.

Eat St. free application is available at the Apple Store. E-mail eatst@invokemedia.com if you want to add your lunch wagon to the list.
