Eat the Street: New food to debut
Judging from the huge lines for Melt’s duck confit sandwich and foie gras soup at January’s Eat the Street, we know a lot of people attending Friday’s Eat the Street Kaka’ako will be interested in scoping out new or specialty dishes at the food truck rally.
We included these debut eats in our preview gallery (see below), but we thought we’d make it easy for you to have everything listed in one place, so you can take it with you to Friday’s event — 5-9 p.m. at 555 South St. (at Halekauwila) — and use it as a guide.
