Grind Wit Tryz
The gist: This Hawaiian counter-service restaurant serves massive piles of rice and meat dishes.
The food: Grind Wit Tryz has been attracting hours-long lines at its food cart since it opened in fall of 2019. Moving to a brick and mortar location is always a risk for carts, but doing so during the pandemic this last year was an even bolder move. However, that seems to have paid off, as the Hawaiian sensation continues to draw in crowds who carry off over-laden boxes of rice bowls. Portions tend to verge on “absurd” here, with platters of ono chicken, kalua pork, ahi poke, and more. Everything is big, flavorful, and deeply satisfying, even indulgent.
