Welcome to Sam Choy’s Pineapple Express, the first rolling restaurants to bring the food of Hawaii’s most famous chef to the mainland. Our menu features island favorites like Sam’s slow-cooked Kalua pork sandwiches wrapped in tea leaves, Wagyu Beef with Da Kine sauce, and Maui Wowie Chopped salads. Our wraps and Big Island bowls feature Firecracker ™ rice and toppings like Kona Sunset Shrimp, Kalua Pork, Teriyaki Chicken and Ahi Tuna. There’s even fresh poke and Pineapple Upside Down Cake.” To view their driving schedule visit samchoyspx.com.

    Don’t get too excited……it appears they are only making
    appearances in the LA area.

    Aloha From Sam Choys Pineapple Express. We have been in
    Goleta a few times already and would love to make it up to SB much
    more often. If you have any suggestions as to where we could come
    for lunch and Dinner we would be happy to come. We are now going to
    be in Ventura County regularly and hope to create some great events
    in your area as well. Mahalo Jeffrey

      Yes, I would recommend that you visit the Santa Barbara City College! Call them and see where you can park. There are 2 campus sites, East and West and they both overlook the ocean. In the past, there was a Farmer’s Market event on Wednesday’s maybe 12-3 pm???

      Can you let me know when you’ll be up in SB or Goleta in March??

      Thank you!
