Fumi’s is also the first Hawaii restaurant to make the Maxim list in the four years that the magazine has been publishing the awards.

Early 1990s Shrimp Trucks pop up on North Shore Oahu.

Shrimp trucks have been a staple on the North Shore of Oahu since 1993 when Giovanni’s started selling shrimp to both locals and tourists. In the years since Giovanni’s opened, a number of shrimp trucks have appeared on Kamehameha Highway, from the sleepy town of Haleiwa to Kualoa Ranch. Shrimp trucks spawned from the shrimp aquaculture industry in the town of Kahuku and have been featured in shows on the Food Network and in articles in the gourmet magazine Saveur. With the good food and constant press, the North Shore shrimp trucks have managed to become just as famous as the surf on the North Shore of Oahu. Fumi’s Kahuku Shrimp expanded in 2008 when they built a stand-alone building to complement their already popular shrimp truck on the North Shore. The next time you are visiting the North Shore of Oahu, be sure to enjoy a delicious, albeit messy, shrimp truck meal. Your taste buds will thank you.
