Stopped here for lunch on a recommendation from a guy we met at the hotel bar. We didn't think to ask for directions at the time of referral and didn't have access to the internet so tried entering into the gps. DO NOT DO THIS, you will be directed to a residential address.

We were a group of 4 couples and all of us enjoyed the shrimp. One of us ordered the hot shrimp and while he admitted they were really hot he ate them all...even though he was sweating perfusly and his face was as red as a ripe tomato. We were lucky as we stayed on the west side of the... More

The spicy shrimp was amazing but it's not for the light hearted. there is even a disclaimer stating no refunds! :) if you think Tabasco sauce is hot...stick to one of the other delicious options.

The Original and Worth It! There are several food trucks in the Northshore area and a choice of shrimp trucks. Our foursome had the shrimp scampi and the lemon & butter shrimp.

We had heard about this truck all the here in Australia, so when we went to Hawaii we made it our mission to go and find it. It certainly didnt disapoint. I would happily eat here again and again. So delicious and filling.
