Must Eat: Shrimp Trucks in Oahu

We’re back from Hawaii, but I still have so many great eats and things to do from our trip to share! For the rest of the week, I’m going to continue to post some of our Hawaii highlights, before switching the focus back to local LA 🙂

The North Shore of Oahu is famous for its shrimp trucks near the town of Kahuku, an area known for shrimp aquaculture.  Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck is one of the most popular trucks with 773 reviews on yelp with an average of 4 stars.  We opted to try the less popular (67 reviews) but 4.5 star rated “Famous Kahuku Shrimp Truck” . As you can see from the photos, the shrimp was juicy and packed with flavor. They are shelled so the best way (in my opinion) to eat them is to suck the marinade off the shells, peel, then dip again in sauce and eat. It’s messy, but worth it!
