Still in its infancy, Makers and Takers takes on a new approach in supporting local! Hawaii is known for its food and with the rise of food trucks, what better thing to do than have a centralized location for such growth! The surrounding area is still in development like parking lot expansion. Keep in mind this is to support all local Makers, not necessarily a truck or only food specialization. With a multitude of cuisines to select from, there is something for everyone!

LOCATION

Where an old ‘Fisherman’s Wharf’ restaurant used to be located has found new life. The former Restaurant was demolished, turned into a large parking lot and now home to a bunch of new eateries. Food trucks have always been a local favorite for as long as I can remember and now there is a type of ‘headquarters’. These have become a real awesome past time in our family: trying out new food trucks (rather than trying new restaurants). A very awesome thing is that these food trucks rotate out; they have new trucks for lunch and dinner (some are there all day).

LOCAL FOOD TRUCKS

There are a lot of varieties of trucks here – all decked out in different styles to draw in an audience. From well known trucks to up and coming quick stops, it’s a great way to try out many local dishes!

Not all stops are food trucks! some are “stands” you would see at a Farmers Market or Swap Meet. This Lemonade/Tea stand was very refreshing!

This is definitely a place for tourist to visit if you need a one stop shop for some ONO KINE LOCAL GRINDS! (aka – local food) To top it off, there is a bar located in the center of the area with plenty of available sitting/eating space. Also – Live entertainment but I believe experience may vary. Great for families or a romantic date!
