Famous Kahuku Shrimp Truck (Hawaii 2018): Seriously Famous Garlic Squid and Shrimp

Next on our road trip to the North Shore was a visit to Famous Kahuku Shrimp Truck, which is super close to nearby Giovanni’s Aloha Shrimp Truck. Like many of the garlic shrimp trucks on the North Shore, Famous has a covered picnic table area where you can sit and enjoy your food purchases.

After the disappointing shrimp that we had at Giovanni’s, we were very pleased by the Garlic Squid and Shrimp ($14) that we got at Famous.

There was plenty of smashed up garlic cloves in this dish and the shrimp and squid had a nice garlicky flavour. In addition to a serving of rice, this plate also came with a helping of creamy mac salad which was really good too. Really enjoyed how much tender squid there was in this dish and, unlike at Giovanni’s, it wasn’t overly oily or salty.


Famous Kahuku Shrimp earns their name and rated #2 on our list of best garlic shrimp on this trip (just behind Blue Water Shrimp and Seafood in Waikiki and right above Fumi’s on the North Shore).
