Food Finds: North Shore & Central Oahu
Haleiwa Shrimp Court
Peel off the main road for a piquant pit stop at Hale‘iwa Shrimp Court on O‘ahu's North Shore. This rolling retinue of awesome eats offers five trucks, Giovanni's, Sane's Simply Shrimp, Hono's Shrimp, Ert's Grill and North Shore Dogs and Burgers. So take a break from constructing sand castles, grab your friends, and pig out on a plate lunch buffet where you can sample shrimp plates and plate lunches from some of the most popular food trucks on O‘ahu.
Parked in a dirt lot as you enter Hale‘iwa, Hale‘iwa Shrimp Court is picnic-perfect with benches, umbrellas and a shady area to enjoy your sizzling shrimp plate. We love the spicy plate (sauce on the side!) at Giovanni's to spice up your traditional lunch routine. And don't forget to make your mark and sign your name on the Giovanni's truck. You'll just have to remember where it is so you can find it again on your next visit!
As Hawai‘i's food truck scene continues to rev up, new options are taking to the street including the increasingly popular Eat the Street event (featuring a traffic jam of food trucks with a different theme each month) in Kaka‘ako as well as lunch trucks throughout Downtown Honolulu. If you've missed Hale‘iwa Shrimp Court you can still gas up and go to Macky's or Leonard's trucks in Hale‘iwa for sweet Kahuku shrimp and malasadas.
