Top 5 Food Trucks on Maui

1
Shark Pit

Shark Pit

Named after the popular Lahaina surf spot, “The Pit” creates a land-based feeding frenzy every day around lunchtime. Fish and shrimp tacos are drizzled in aioli and just the right touch of sriracha, and burgers feature local, grass-fed beef on a homemade taro brioche. The fresh fish daily is dangerously good.

Maui Fresh Streatery

Maui Fresh Streatery

It isn’t open often, but when it is, no other food truck can compare. Chef Kyle Kawakami weaves fresh local ingredients into a truly global menu—one that is constantly reinventing itself to feature flavors from all corers of the world. If available, order up some Indian spiced seared ahi or trio of Cuban pork sandwiches, and don’t be fooled by the industrial location—the food is as fine as it comes. Open Monday and Wednesday, 11am-1pm, and Friday evening late nights.

Like Poke?

Like Poke?

This colorful truck in the Kahului oasis specializes in Hawaii’s favorite fish dish, and features local twists such as ahi katsu and everyone’s favorite, fried poke. All fish is locally caught and is purchased directly from fishermen—so if the owner can’t get the fish that day, better luck tomorrow!

Slightly Salty

Slightly Salty

The name itself is somewhat of a misnomer, as “delicious,” “surprising,” and “borderline ridiculous” would be a better fit for the name. The crab cake sandwiches are unlike any on Maui, and the pork belly sandwich and plate of shrimp pasta have fostered a loyal following. Located in the Kahului food truck oasis—be sure to arrive real hungry.

Three’s Food Truck

Three’s Food Truck

In partnership with the popular South Kihei restaurant, this truck features genre-bending culinary concoctions that are worthy of a fine dining kitchen. Spring for the kalua pork quesadillas with pineapple chutney, Thai sweet chili, and a hint of cilantro aioli—ono to da max! Located in the Kahului food truck oasis and select spots on weekends.
