Kauai is the ideal place to eat take out food. Why? There's so much natural beauty and gorgeous beaches to enjoy food, that take out on the beach can be better than an oceanfront high end eatery. There are a ton of awesome restaurants on Kauai, and most allow take out to be taken nearby and enjoyed on a beach, in a park, or under a tree in the grass. Maximize your time experiencing Kauai's beauty, and enjoy great food to go.
Over on the east side, Papaya's Natural Foods is a local favorite for healthy food on the go. Offering salads, entrees, fresh juices and smoothies, the food is perfect to take down the street to Lydgate Beach Park or Kealia Beach. Sit by the ocean and watch surfers catch waves while enjoying your meal.
On the beach laden West Side in Waimea, Island Taco and The Shrimp Station offer hefty meals to take to go. Bring a heaping taco plate or a pile of shrimp to Polihale State Beach Park or up the road to Koke'e State Park.
Healthy delicious food to go is easy to find on the lush North Shore. Red Hot Mama's is located in the heart of the beach area by beautiful Ha'ena Beach Park. Hanalei Taro & Juice Co. in Hanalei serves to go food out of a lunch wagon to be taken to Hanalei Bay where perfect surf and majestic cliffs are a gorgeous backdrop for a meal.
