I love street food. I like the whole idea of local cuisine and food that is not massed produced. On my trip here in Maui I ate today not street food but side of the road food. Just outside Big Beach at Makena is the trailer for Big Beach BBQ.


At lunch time I backtracked down the road back to Big Beach BBQ which I had seen earlier. They offer 3 basic dishes, each for $9: chicken, pork and fish . I ordered the pork sliders. The first surprise was the purple buns. They are a sweet bun that as I understand are made with taro root. The second surprise was the topping on the pork which was an awe inspiring guava mustard. Yum. This was a lunch stop worth driving out of your way to get to.
