Eat this: New lineup at Taste


Every three months, Taste in Kaka’ako keeps it fresh by bringing us a new pop-up lineup. I sampled the new offerings this week and overall, I’m impressed with the talent in this rotation. Onda Pasta opens each week for Tuesday lunches, serving up fresh handmade pasta. Taste veterans Pig and the Lady are experimenting in a Tuesday dinner time slot, while Kiba Cafe serves up ethnic comfort foods for lunch on Wednesday. Chef Wade Ueoka, who spent many years working for Alan Wong’s Restaurant, is bringing fresh local favorites to his Thursday lunch, while Thai Spice Shack rounds out this quarter’s lineup by popping out of their truck Fridays for lunch service.
