Honolulu’s burgeoning mobile food truck community is sharing their aloha for Japan by serving newly created Japanese-inspired menu items for Eat The Street:Japan. The event organizers are partnering with the American Red Cross to accept donations for Japan disaster relief efforts and many of the food trucks will be contributing a portion of their sales that night.
