Nonstop Honolulu‘s Diane Seo today unveiled more details about the second “Eat the Street” Food Truck Rally, tacking place Friday, Feb. 25, from 5 to 9 p.m., at 555 South St. in Kakaako.
The first event in January, which drew a dozen trucks and an estimated 1,000 people, was a huge success. So much so, the space was overflowing with people.

There will be at least 19 vendors on a huge lot near Restaurant Row.

There’s also a Twtvite set up for Twitter users to RSVP.
Hawaii tech guru Burt Lum visited Morimoto Restaurant in Waikiki this morning, and ordered the “Loco Moto” — Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s version of the classic local dish. Burt tweeted us the above photo, later commenting: “It wasn’t like ground beef but instead slices of wagyu steak in the brown gravy and Maui onions. It was delicious.”

Honolulu Magazine columnist John Heckathorn (a long-time local food writer now blogging at Biting Commentary) recently checked out several new Honolulu food trucks. It was a “two lunch” day as he visited OnoToGo and Yajima-ya, both on Sheridan Street.
