“Heavenly Food!”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

This one happened to be the highlight of our stay in Hawaii this time. We stumbled upon it accidentally on a way from the East coast to Pupukea.
Located in an unassuming and and unremarkable place on the very northernmost point of Oahu it boasts the best shrimp I ever tried in my life! True thing.
They farm and harvest their own shrimp right behind their trucks and those never previously frozen shrimps are the secret of the heavenly taste. It's like pure essence of shrimpiness, so sweet and fresh, so plump and juicy!
Nuff to say that we were driving there every other day of our stay in Honolulu, just for this sole purpose to have these shrimps.
Their sweet corn covered in butter is remarkable too. Worth every penny.
In addition, if you will be driving from the East coast (from Hanauma Bay) towards the northern tip of the island of Oahu, pay attention to the tiny farmers' market on the left: well worth to make a stop and buy some freshest and sweetest fruits from the local orchards, wonderful fruit preserves as well as quite addictive deep-fried banana spring rolls - true food of gods!

“Don't drive past this one …”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

A friend told me about Fumis so we tried it for lunch on our last visit toward the end of our stay. Too bad we didn't go earlier! The shrimp is delicious - we shared the garlic butter shrimp and coconut shrimp (great sauce too!) yesterday and are waiting to go back again for lunch today!

“Shrimp Boats”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

Fun and tasty----but it is a $12 lunch! The rice is very sticky just the way I like it. I am not sure that it is very different from the others, but it is good.

“Pretty good”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

If you order a shrimp dish, you have to peel all of your own shrimp which is messy. They use a lot of butter which can't be very healthful.

“good shrimp”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

If in the area, must try the shrimp trucks..We tried about 3-4- all similar in cooking but different in taste and the shrimp used was a tad different from other trucks. Wished they were closer to honolulu so we didn't have to travel all the way north of the island.
