HONOLULU (KFVE) -- In this week's Cheap Eats, Russ and Lyle head back to Kalihi to one of the best lunch trucks on the island. They're at Carval Express located at the corner of Mokauea and Kalani Streets. It's a place that never disappoints.
Carval Express is a lunch truck that's kicked up a notch. You can enjoy your food in a nice outdoor seating area. They offer good eats like pepper fried chicken with potato salad. There's also the short ribs with spicy garlic sauce and Nalo greens. Carval Express also has a list of daily specials. For example, they have fried pork chops with spicy ketchup for $7, and hamburger steak with gravy, mushrooms and onions also for $7.
It's only been around for six months, but already Carval Express has developed a following.
"We like to go for the specials. Always the special menu whatever is on the Facebook," said Gene Gibo of Hawaii Kai.
Carval Express also offers a loco moco. It comes with a couple of eggs, hamburger and gravy all over rice. But if you're a pork lover, you can't go wrong with their roast pork wrapped in bacon.
Don't forget, Carval Express is at the corner of Mokauea and Kalani Streets in Kalihi.
