Kickshaws is a gourmet mobile food truck business, the first of its kind on Kaua'i. Kickshaws is owned and operated by Seth Peterson. Seth is a self taught chef with a biology background. He also worked as an organic farmer on Kauai's Northshore for over 10 years. He loves to play with flavor palates and has a very unique cooking style. 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. Seth uses sous vide cooking and other avant garde techniques to create truly unique and delicious dishes. He's most definitely changing lives one 100% Awesome Burger at a time.
