WE WILL BE TEMPORARILY CLOSED UNTIL OCTOBER 10, 2018. Kickshaws is a gourmet mobile food truck business, the first of its kind on Kaua'i. Kickshaws is owned and operated by Seth Peterson. What separates Kickshaws from other trucks on the island is cooking technique and flavor combinations. The term, science forward food, helps to describe the cuisine of Kickshaws. Gourmet diner food with a definite twist. We use sous vide cooking and other avant garde techniques to create truly unique and delicious dishes. We look forward to tantilizing your tastebuds.
