Cooking Fresh For You

Cooking Fresh For You is a lunch wagon located in Honolulu, Hawaii. Michi, the chef and owner, grew up in San Francisco, but moved back to Hawaii when she was a teenager. Surrounded by the calorie-laced Hawaiian-style plate lunches, Michi devoted herself to a more health-conscious lifestyle. And yes, I'm the same way...exercising so I can eat what I want!

Menu at November Eat The Street
Cooking Fresh For You uses only the freshest ingredients, and even their dressings are made from scratch. The fat and sodium contents are kept to a minimum. While the meals are healthier, the dishes retain full-body flavor!

Spotting this truck at November's Eat The Street event in Kakaako, I ordered the Thai Beef Salad ($6): this salad included Romaine lettuce, cabbage, tomato, and thinly sliced steak, with a side of cilantro-lime dressing. In all, there were "11 ingredients of love!"

Thai Beef Salad (Cooking Fresh For You)
I enjoyed the refreshing vegetables and succulent, juicy beef. Tons of color here livened the dish up! The cilantro-lime dressing had a bit of sweetness and some tang, electrifying the palate. The beef was cooked around medium-rare to medium. My mom, who generally prefers her meat well-done, raved about this dish without complaint, so you know this has to be an amazing dish.

Other dishes include the Tex Mex Quinoa Salad with Tomato-Basil Dressing, "Asian Persuasion" nachos, and a sirloin steak plate. Hit up Cooking Fresh For You for quality ingredients and healthy meals! 8/10
