Food Truck Friday: Hula Girl Truck

Mahalo! It's Food Truck Friday!

The minute Ericka and I saw the Hula Girl Truck we wanted to order from it. Bright blue, clean, flowers, a surfboard and a flat screen. So girly!


And because we are girly, we ordered the salad of course. We both got the Teriyaki Chicken Salad with a side of Sticky Rice.


The chicken was fantastic! Bold flavor, cooked well, I really liked the pickled diakon and edamame served in the salad but were missing our macadamia nuts and that bummed me out.


My biggest bummer though was the sticky rice. It's not the Hula Girl Trucks fault though, it's mine. My mouth was thinking of Thai sticky rice that is sweet, Hawaiian sticky rice is not.


I think the salad needed something sweet in it, Ericka suggested some mango and I think that would be awesome.

Next time I will try the sandwich, with the pickled diakon and other flavors it probably tastes a lot like bahn mi.


Overall we walked back to work with our stomachs full, feeling like we had a healthy lunch. If you're looking for a good chicken sandwich or a healthy and fresh salad, I say look for Hula Girl.

Also the ladies of the Hula Girl Truck are really, really nice.

Next week we are going to hit up the trucks on a different day to see if we have a different line up. Still want to go back to Takorean and track down the Lobster Truck. Stay tuned!

  1. I sent your blog link to my daughter because I thought she'd like to join. She sent me back a picture of herself and you with her friend Liz--who was in my girl scout troop. Small world.

  2. Wow, the Hula Girl truck sounds good. I am always looking for more healthier food truck options, so the next time they are in the Chinatown area, I will have to give them a try.
