Three Stops for Shrimp on Oahu's North Shore

Posted on Sat, 2017/05/06 - 11:06pm by Jessica Gellert

The North Shore is known for its beautiful beaches, epic surf and friendly residents. But did you know it’s also known for its world famous shrimp trucks?

Here’s three we recommend you take a shrimp stop at next time you visit us at Turtle Bay. All of them are only about a five minute drive from your hotel room. You could also rent bikes or mopeds from the Hele Huli Adventure Center near our tennis courts if you do not have a vehicle.

 

1. Fumis Kahuku Shrimp
56-777 Kamehameha Hwy.
Open 10 a.m. - 7:30 p.m. daily
Phone: (808) 232-8881
Only accepts cash
If you head out onto Kamehameha Hwy. and turn left, the first shrimp stop you’ll encounter is Fumis on the left side of the road. Out of all the shrimp trucks, Fumis tends to have the shortest line and wait time. However, don’t let this stop you from trying them out. Diners continously rave about how big, juicy and tasty the shrimp is as well as the service with aloha.

2. Romy's Kahuku Prawns & Shrimp
56-781 Kamehameha Highway
Open 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. daily
Phone: 232-2202
View Menu
Only accepts cash
Less than one minute down the road you’ll see a red building- Romy's Kahuku Prawns and Shrimp. They harvest shrimp and prawns from their farm daily and the seafood is cooked live. The wait time could be 20-40 minutes or more, but everyone says it’s worth the wait. The menu starts at $12.75 for a garlic shrimp plate. They also serve up spicy shrimp, garden salads and more.

3. Giovanni’s
56-505 Kamehameha Hwy
Open 10:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. daily
Phone: 293-1839
View Menu
If you continue down Kamehameha Hwy. you’ll see a white truck covered in writing. It’s the famous Giovanni's shrimp truck, which started operating out of a converted 1953 bread truck in 1993. The writing on the truck is from guests who took delight in the van’s scrumptious garlic shrimp. Plates start at $14.00 and there may be a wait due to the truck’s popularity.
