Oahu’s North Shore is infamous for their food trucks. Scattered from Haleiwa to Hau‘ula, these casual eateries have made a name for themselves, and many Oahu visitors make a special trip north to experience their foods. While many of the trucks specialize in shrimp, there are tens of others that offer different flavors too. It seems a new truck pops up every other month too, which is great news for North Shore residents, since they’re all within walking (or biking) distance of home!
In case it’s been a while since you driven along the North Shore, or if you’re a newcomer to the area, here’s a look at a few of the newest food trucks that have sprouted up along the Seven Mile Miracle.
The top seller is the Chicken Brie sandwich, but Ryan is also keen on creating customized sandwiches for customers, or turning any sandwich into a salad. The location is perfect because after you get your meal you can walk to Shark’s Cove and enjoy a Sandy’s sandwich in the sand. Just don’t get any on your bread buns!
These brick oven pizzas are fresh, hot and non greasy, making the splurge seem a little more healthy. Also, Raul strives to use local and non-GMO products as much as possible, so you know you’re eating well with The Garden Oven! Grab your pizza to go and eat it along the beach or at the picnic tables at Ehukai Beach Park. There are plenty of places to sit down and enjoy your fresh, local meal.
The menu, like most food trucks, is not extensive, but it hits all the basics. Pad Thai, papaya salad, panang curry and the likes are offered here, and you can chose between ‘mild’ spiciness, ‘lil spice’ or Thai spicy’ for an extra kick. They even offer Thai iced tea as a refresher, so if you’re in the mood for Thai food and looking for an outdoor sit down style ambiance, this is the spot!
Located in the parking lot of the Chevron gas station across from Sunset Beach, Seven Brothers grills up tasty meals and some of the best fries on the island. There’s no seating area here though, so get your burger and fries to go and find a nice slice of sand at Sunset Beach. If you want their sit-down experience with wider menu options, try Seven Brothers in the Laie shopping center.
