Eat the Street: Garlic

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Ahh, garlic. While potentially hazardous in social situations, the savory herb is more versatile than you might think. Get much more than just a whiff at this month's Eat the Street Garlic Fest on Friday, June 29 from 4-9 p.m. at 555 South St. in Kakaako.

Brought to you by, in partnership with Kamehameha Schools and Nonstop Honolulu, this month's culinary adventure features garlic, the delicious bulb that can be used as a garnish for dishes sweet, spicy and savory, or just roasted and munched by itself. All the vendors are encouraged to incorporate garlic into at least one of their dishes in a creative way.

This month, there will be a special garlicky adobo fried rice eating contest for the brave... but never fear. The Street Grindz tent will be giving out free mints so you can go on being social.

Also, beginning this month, Eat the Street will be hosting Lemonade Alley's keiki fundraising project and contest. There will be three lemonade stands representing each age group, where children will be 'test marketing' their product before the actual Lemonade Alley sale in July. It's a great opportunity for the keiki to fine tune their product as well as collect donations that will go to their fundraising efforts through this contest. For more info, click HERE!

As always, Shogunai's DJ crew will be spinning some great beats to dine to, while Lightsleepers hosts the monthly live art battle.

Join the celebration of garlic on Friday, June 29 at 555 South St. from 4-9 p.m. Admission to Eat the Street is always FREE. Past events have brought crowds of thousands to Eat the Street, which features more than 40 of the best food trucks and street vendors in Honolulu.

Eat the Street hosts food truck rallies on the last Friday of every month, featuring a diverse range of food vendors. For more information on Eat the Street, click HERE or follow Street Grindz on Facebook or on Twitter at @streetgrindz. For more information, call 808-780-9288.
