Hawaiian Grill Food Truck (Korean Hawaiian Barbeque)
SW 5th & Stark
Warren and the monkeys (Satchel, 11, and Jiro, 9) are in the midst of a cross-country summer adventure. They stopped for lunch in Portland, Oregon last week at one of the city's oldest food truck "pods." As you may or may not know, Portland is pretty famous for the quantity and quality of food trucks. They are all over town and cluster in pods.
It looks like they typically serve out of the back, rather than the side, like we see here. I'm assuming this maximizes space.
Warren and the boys chose Hawaiian Grill, natch.
After a short wait, they got some of the best food they'd had in days. (They'd been camping, although Warren cooks up some pretty tasty camp food.) Satchel got the chicken katsu special.
Warren ordered the Hawaiian Barbeque beef.
And Jiro's selection was the favorite--a Musubi roll with Spam, nori, rice and teriyaki sauce. Warren has already said he's making these when he gets home. (Spam is big in Hawaii and Warren lived there as a child.)
I'm not a huge Spam fan, but I do agree that looks pretty tasty.
Since I wasn't there, I don't have too much information to share other than the boys loved it. Their lunch, along with two Hawaiian nectars, was $17.50.

Also, how cute is it that they sent info for me to do a review? Stay tuned for the real reason for their stop in Portland--Voodoo Doughnuts!
