Giovanni’s Aloha Shrimp Truck – Kahuku (Hawaii 2018): Overrated Shrimp Truck

Blue Water Shrimp and Seafood (Hawaii 2018): Best Garlic Shrimp

As I mentioned on my last post on Da Spot Health Foods and Juices Food Truck, we were pleasantly surprised to find not one but two shrimp trucks in the heart of Waikiki. Despite having plans to head over to the North Shore, it’s much more convenient to be able to pick up some tasty garlic shrimp when you can simply walk a couple of minutes to the shrimp trucks at Kuhio and Kanekapolei, next to the Food Pantry.

Da Spot Health Foods and Juices Food Truck (Hawaii 2018): Butter Garlic Shrimp

One of the iconic food items from Hawaii (aside from poke) is garlic shrimp… specifically from the countless food trucks that dot the North Shore of Oahu. But if you’re not in the mood for a road trip, you can find garlic shrimp in the heart of Waikiki.

Gilligan’s Beach Shack (Hawaii 2017): Garlic Shrimp and Shoestring Fries

There’s always free entertainment in Waikiki… if you know where to look. Whether it’s the torch lighting ceremony, the shows at the International Marketplace, or the ever popular fireworks at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.

Five Star Shrimp (Hawaii 2017): Garlic Shrimp

The last time we were in Oahu, we were thrilled to find garlic shrimp smack dab in the heart of Waikiki at Pacific Garlic Shrimp, right outside the Pacific Beach Hotel, because it meant that we didn’t have to travel all the way to the North Shore for some tasty garlic shrimp. As it turned out in our visit this year, the Pacific Beach Hotel was undergoing renovations which meant no garlic shrimp in front of their location.

Pacific Garlic Shrimp (Hawaii 2016) – Why Go To The North Shore?

Okay, so everyone that comes to Oahu has probably heard about the awesome shrimp trucks that they have on the North Shore. But if you’re staying in Waikiki, it’s a bit of a far trip just for a couple of shrimp. That’s not to say the North Shore doesn’t have other great things to look at (or great places to eat). It’s just that it’s not always convenient to drive up to the North Shore when you get a hankering for garlic shrimp.

Magoo’s Burgers (Hawaii 2016) – Passionfruit and Watermelon Shave Ice

It’s been three years since our first hike up Diamond Head. At the time, I told myself that I’d never do it again. But I suppose time does heal all wounds.

Grilled Cheese Grill and Euro Dish (Portland) – Food Carts

One place that we knew we had to try during our visit to Portland wasn’t a specific restaurant. Rather, it was the food cart scene. Portland is renowned for the number of food carts that they have (approximately 600 compared to Vancouver’s roughly 100 food carts). But does more mean better?

PNE 2013 – Reel (Deep Fried) Mac and Cheese

We’ve been going to the PNE for years… it’s one of the constants in Vancouver in late August.  Over the years, it seemed like things had progressively gotten worse… almost to a point where we were considering not going this year.  Read the rest of this entry
