Pork Sliders from Big Beach BBQ – Maui

categories: USA Travel

I love street food. I like the whole idea of local cuisine and food that is not massed produced. On my trip here in Maui I ate today not street food but side of the road food. Just outside Big Beach at Makena is the trailer for Big Beach BBQ.


At lunch time I backtracked down the road back to Big Beach BBQ which I had seen earlier. They offer 3 basic dishes, each for $9: chicken, pork and fish . I ordered the pork sliders. The first surprise was the purple buns. They are a sweet bun that as I understand are made with taro root. The second surprise was the topping on the pork which was an awe inspiring guava mustard. Yum. This was a lunch stop worth driving out of your way to get to.

It’s always interesting trying food from small roadside stands like this. Those purple taro buns look really tasty!

Wow, the colour of that bun – I love the colour purple but I can’t decide if it is appetising or not in a bun



not sure either but it is tasty



I also love roadside cuisine. The best fried chicken I ever ate (and I live in Alabama, so I’ve eaten a lot of fried chicken) was at a roadside stand on the east end of St. John, USVI. Thanks for sharing this treasure.



I have had these sliders and they are fabulous! They are so yummy! Fish Taco’s and Pineapple Dogs with homemade coleslaw and carmalized onions are a must try too!

This truly is a treasure.
