The newest food truck in town will bring a taste of Hawaii to Louisiana.
Ono’s Traditional Hawaiian Cuisine will debut June 4 at the Shreveport Farmers Market, according to local food blogger Chris Jay.
The mobile catering service is owned by Sione Maumalanga.
According to Jay’s blog, 20×49, the menu will feature: “Hawaiian culinary traditions include heaping platters of rice, beef, gravy and potato salad (like in Louisiana, Hawaiians just call these plate lunches) and dishes incorporating slow-roasted pork (Hawaii’s answer to the cochon de lait is called kalua pork). But there’s also musubi (the most famous version, SPAM musubi, is a slice of grilled SPAM atop a block of sushi rice), Kahuku garlic shrimp (shell-on prawns prepared with lots of garlic, butter and lemon juice).”
