Travel Eats: Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck in Hawaii
For years now, I have seen and heard good things about Giovanni’s famous shrimp truck! While in Hawaii, we had to see what the hype was all about.
Some people love Giovanni’s while others say it is overrated. Macky’s or Giovanni’s? What are your favorites?
The iconic mobile vehicle was marked with graffiti and messages written by people from all over the world.
The menu is simple including shrimp scampi, hot & spicy and the lemon butter version. The most popular plate was the shrimp scampi so we decided to get that.
The shrimp scampi included 12 shrimps (deveined, head off, shell-on) coated with garlic butter, two scoops of rice (topped with garlic butter) and a wedge of lemon. I also ordered a side of macaroni salad and a side of hot sauce.
How do you eat your shrimp? I personally enjoy eating the entire shell (without peeling off the shrimp skin). So much flavorful inside the shell…
