Creep on trucking
To break away from the tourist crowd, get your first meal at a food truck. Kalua pork, poke, huli-huli chicken, and fried Spam are just a few delicacies Hawaii is known for. And just like your resident flight attendants, chefs are well placed to hear about island happenings that are still news at the street level. What’s more, they offer views that sit-down restaurants would charge a mint for.
If you’re in Kauai, don’t miss The Green Pig for their Porkaholic sandwich and piggy tail curly fries (loaded with more pork and smothered in gravy). Donkey Beach is right down the road, or even better, the gorgeous bike path.
