The Shrimp Shack – North Shore of Oahu

I love peel and eat shrimp.  Love it.  If peel and eat shrimp are on the menu, that is what I will order every time. 

My husband, however, is not a fan.  The first time I took him home to meet my mom, peel and eat shrimp were on the menu.  He grew up in a household that ate little to no seafood at all and he was horrified.  Let’s just say that he probably drove through McDonald’s on the way home.

One of the things I was most looking forward to was the shrimp trucks up and down the North Shore.  I definitely ate my fill of shrimp cooked up in little yellow, blue, and graffiti painted shrimp trucks.  One of our favorites was the Shrimp Shack.

When we left for Hawaii, a friend left me a note on my Facebook wall that said “Go to the North Shore and look for a yellow truck that sells shrimp. Get it. Go next door and buy a beer from the convenience store and have the best lunch of your life!!”  So we did.  We drove to the North Shore, found the yellow shrimp truck, bought a drink and enjoyed one delicious lunch!

 They have little tables lined up against the convenience store where you can sit and enjoy your lunch.

Or you can cross the street (watch out for traffic and use the crosswalk!) and look at this while you eat:
