Taco Tuesdays

Click here to see 9/27/11 outtakes at Honolulu Photo of the Day on Facebook
Every Tuesday there is a line up of a new generation of lunch wagons in the downtown Kakaako district. It is Taco Tuesday, which is a spin off of a mainland trend. There were a variety of tacos to choose from at several wagons. I ordered the Japanese style taco from Shogun Tacos. It had pork, sprouts, an oriental sauce, and cabbage, wrapped in an 8" tortilla.  Although it had it's own unique flavor I had hoped for something that tasted more interesting and exciting. I did notice that the Korean tacos were sold out, thus it would lead me to believe that the Korean tacos could be their specialty. Also in the line up were a local plate lunch wagon, burger wagons, other taco trucks, and an ice cream wagon. The customers ranged from business people to students from the nearby medical school. It's a must try if you haven't been there already.

Interesting post. Although there are many, many food carts (as they're known in Portland) here, none are within my lunch-time reach. One of these days when I'm on another stay-cation, I ought to try out some of them.

Taco Tuesday! The only thing better than that is Taco Friday (with a margarita, of course). Although it doesn't have the same ring to it.

I've been meaning to try Korean tacos. Very intrigued!

Taco Friday with margarita sound like it would hit the spot. Happy Friday!
