Ohanas395: A food truck in Lee Vining

This post was written by Rosanne Catron, 2014 Office Director.

If you drove through Lee Vining on Tuesday or Wednesday, you might have noticed a big, orange food truck parked in Lee Vining. A food truck, in Lee Vining, in the winter?

That’s right, Ohanas395 has come to town. Hawaiian fusion food with a healthy twist, local owner Rena McCullough says, “I can feed a truck driver or a vegan—it’s original.” Ohanas 395 is currently in Lee Vining on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, but watch for their orange truck up and down the Eastern Sierra in the near future.

For updates on where you can find Ohanas395, and to see their menu, visit their Facebook page or follow them on Twitter. On many days, you can expect to see Ohanas395 in Lee Vining, McCullough’s home. She says, “I just love that view of Mono Lake.”

Lee Vining also offers a number of other delicious dining options, including the Mono Market where you can buy freshly made breakfast, lunch, and dinner to go, as well as Nicely’s Restaurant, serving up classic American diner food, both open all winter long. During your next winter excursion to Lee Vining, why not mix it up and visit all three?
