Indie Girl Expands and The Street Test Kitchen Opens at The Street Food Hall by Michael Mina

The first year anniversary of The Street Food Hall by Michael Mina is quickly approaching and promises several new and exciting station concepts that will launch over the next two months. Located on the ground floor of the International Market Place, The Street has become a must-try culinary adventure for local residents and tourists alike.
The first station to announce its new offerings is the very popular Indie Girl. Known for its best-in-class ingredients, Indie Girl is a wellness bar devoted to its customers’ health and the wellbeing of bodies in motion. Indie Girl has merged with LAMILL and will offer their delicious cold brew coffee and espresso drinks like the Flat White and Matcha Lattes. Guests can also enjoy a fresh cold press juice, cleansing kombucha on tap, a beneficial bowl or a seriously health-provoking smoothie featuring a curation of superfoods. The menu has been expanded to include a variety of more substantial meal options featuring new items like the Indie Loco Moco, with a roasted beet and brown rice patty, topped with avocado, brown rice, carrot-ginger and shiitake mushroom gravy; and a variety of bowls including the Banzai Pipeline with black bean dirty rice, grilled Chinese long beans, caramelized carrots, Kahumana Farms greens mix and a carrot ginger vinaigrette. The menu also boasts the Notorious I.V.B – the Indie Veggie Burger, featuring a roasted beet and brown rice patty on a MOB Jr. burger bun, topped with a Small Kine mushroom medley, alfalfa sprouts and sliced avocado. Indie Girl is open every day from 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Chef Mina is also pleased to announce the launch of The Street Test Kitchen. Similar to the original MINA Test Kitchen in San Francisco, The Street Test Kitchen will serve as a R&D laboratory for James Beard Award-Winning Chef Michael Mina and his team of star chefs and beverage experts. The concept will continually evolve and showcase a variety of different cuisines and techniques through a series of public “pop-ups.”  The concepts will be inspired by Chef Mina’s travels, and collaborations with different chef friends.  Each concept will be tested at The Street Test Kitchen before potentially making their way onto other MINA Group restaurant menus nationwide. The first of these is a Poke concept – bringing the uniquely Hawaiian offering of poke in your choice of a bowl or roll. Some of the highlights include Salmon & Kim Chee Roll or Bowl features delicious salmon, kim chee, sweet sesame soy, scallion, marinated cucumber and a Kahumana Farms Greens mix. The North Shore Shrimp Roll or Bowl has shrimp portions, shredded green papayanuoc cham, Thai basil, coconut srirachaKahumana Greens mix and crispy shallot.
