Da Falafel King

Truck restaurants intrigue me so I convinced hubby to take me to Da Falafel King. Da Falafel King is parked in front of the Moiliili Community Center on King Street. It’s quite quaint with outdoor chairs, tables and planters with little papaya trees separating the seating area from the sidewalk.

A week earlier, hubby and I had stopped at Down to Earth after eating dinner at Teddy’s Bigger Burgers and saw Da Falafel King. We were looking for some dessert and thought they might have something sweet to buy. They don’t. However, one of the servers said that he had just made some pita chips and gave us each one to try. They were good, crispy with just the right seasoning.

You would think that if the restaurant is known as Da Falafel King, that I would try falafel. Not so…maybe next time. I was starving because I had a light lunch and wanted something more substantial.

After perusing the menu, hubby and I decided to share a kebab plate. The kebab plate came with two grilled beef and lamb patties, eggplant, white cabbage, red cabbage, diced tomatoes and cucumbers, pita bread, french fries, hummus, tahini sauce, and a soft drink ($17.50).

Sandwiches ($8 – $11) are made to order.

Seating is outside so it can get a bit windy or hot. The food was fresh, healthy, well seasoned and quite good. I thought it was a little pricey for what we got and funny as it may seem I was still hungry after we finished eating. Maybe I should get my own order and not share with hubby.

P.S. Da Falafel King is now in a building instead of a truck. I haven’t eaten there yet. It is located on Beretania Street (next to Peace Cafe and the Old Stadium Park).
