Da Falafel King

Honolulu, Hawaii

What to Order: Sabich, hummus and pita chips

Unlike many on this list, Da Falafel King morphed not from a brick-and-mortar location to a truck, but from a food cart within the Waikiki Trade Center Plaza to a bright blue minibus. Yanir Josef and his wife run the hulking vehicle, delighting the natives with some of his Israeli cuisine. The offerings include a sabich sandwich, chicken and lamb kebabs, as well as just-fatty-enough shawarma and, of course, falafel. Locals swing by the truck after a movie to grab fried pita chips and hummus or fries sprinkled with paprika and salt.
