The Tiny Town In Hawaii That’s The Next Shrimp Capital Of The World
Located on Oahu’s northeastern coast is Kahuku, a small town known for one thing: its epic food trucks, and in particular, the ono shrimp they serve. And while you’ll find mouthwatering shrimp – and food trucks – across the Hawaiian Islands and the world, it’s easy to argue that Kahuku is the “Shrimp Capital of the World.” You see, it was in Kahuku – a small community of approximately 2,600 residents – that the shrimp truck was introduced to the island in the 1990s, and became a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. These seven roadside eateries are some of Kahuku’s best – and we know you won’t regret ordering a shrimp plate lunch from any of them.
All located along Kamehameha Highway in Kahuku, it’s easy to find any of these stellar shrimp trucks – as well as roadside eateries specializing in coffee, tacos, and barbecue. Which of Kahuku’s shrimp joints is your favorite?
