“When I think shrimp trucks, I think ... Macky’s!”
My Lady and I drove to the north shore of Oahu for the shrimp truck experience to decide for ourselves who provided the best shrimp plate. It’s about an hour’s drive from Waikiki, but we found it worthwhile. There are about 4 or 5 shrimp trucks within a ½ mile stretch, but the internet reviews from Oahu influenced me to select Macky's as my first stop. Macky's offers 4 different shrimp plates (Butter Garlic, Spicy, Original and Coconut.) We opted for the Butter Garlic and Spicy. Both were simply GREAT! The 10 shrimp were large, fresh, succulent and seasoned superbly. The plate came with a large scoop of rice (non-sticky) with juice from the shrimp. The iceberg lettuce was crisp (we chose Italian dressing) and the pineapple slice was sweet and juicy. We even took a plate to-go back to our hotel for later. For $12 a plate, you can’t beat the price. And, for the quality of the food … one would really have to go a gourmet restaurant to compete. I’ll put my reputation on the line for this one … and highly recommend Macky’s.
