Taco Island TimeWhen heading up to Waimea Canyon or out to Barking Sands Beach, this stop is a must for refueling your calories for the adventure ahead or the efforts you expended on your journey into the wilder part of Kauai. Island Taco is all about the local seafood and spices. The ingredients are locally sourced and always fresh. The space is open and extremely casual. Don’t be alarmed by the roosters wandering through keeping the floors clean. The food speaks volumes about the care and craft coming out of the kitchen.
This place is popular and gets busy at mealtimes. But the service is quick and efficient, keeping the seats constantly turning over. I love the Wasabi seared Ahi burrito which comes with the beans and dirty rice, a treat in and of itself. The tacos are accompanied with homemade chips and salsa, worth getting an extra side of chips if you’re really hungry. And I’d recommend you show up with a healthy appetite. All part of capturing the Aloha spirit.
