New schedule at Taste in Kakaako
It's a new lineup at Taste, the pop-up venue in Kakaako that sprang into existence about six months ago. On the roster: Mark Noguchi of Pili Hawaii (and partner in Taste), Quinten Frye of Salt, the Miso and Ale pop-up, Onda Pasta, farmers' market vendor of fresh pastas, and food truck Ono to Go.
The schedule for the upcoming week:
Friday, March 8 lunch: Cocina, Mexican street food by Quinten Frye (think barbacoa tacos and chicken mole tortas)
Tuesday, March 12 lunch: Ono to Go (plate lunches such as pulehu chicken and boneless short ribs)
Wednesday, March 13 lunch: Miso and Ale. Last week featured their twist on Chinese takeout, such as a lup cheong sandwich and chicken nuggets served with XO sauce.
Wednesday, March 13 dinner: Onda Pasta, featuring fresh pastas, risotto, gnocchi and desserts
Thursday, March 14 lunch AND dinner: Pili Hawaii (an upcoming dish: kalua pig bruschetta with crispy pork ears)
Friday, March 15 lunch AND dinner: Cocina
Saturday, March 16 dinner: Pili Hawaii
The schedule repeats, more or less, for three months, with Pili Hawaii and Cocina doing dinners every other week in addition to their weekly lunches.
