I could really go for a taco right about now.

Verde tl;dr

  • Closed Their Kapaa and Only Maintain the Branch in Lihue
  • Great Mexican Food Made with Hawaiian Ingredients

No story. No buildup.

Straight Mexican food in Lihue of Kauai made with Hawaiian ingredients.

Am I saying this is the most authentic Mexican food that I’ve ever had in the world?

But what I’m saying is that it’s tasty and if you’re in the area, you should check it out especially if you like seafood in your dishes. We really like Mexican seafood dishes and seafood doesn’t get any better in Hawaii than local Hawaiian seafood.

  • Fish Tacos
  • Shrimp Burrito

It’s also pairs really nice with some horchata!

Where is It

Verde is located in a strip mall on Nuhou Street in the southeastern part of the island of Kauai. It can sometimes be confused by their old location in Kapaa, but rest assured that there’s only 1 location now and it’s in Lihue.
