On the menu, they have Garlic Shrimp, Butter Shrimp, BBQ Shrimp, and Pineapple Shrimp.They also have Kalbi (short ribs) plates which we’ve never tried yet.

Romy’s Kahuku Prawns & Shrimp Truck is always busy just like the other best shrimp trucks but they accept phone orders. If your about 30 minutes away, do the phone order! I love how they pack on the garlic shrimp on the plates. You can even order it with extra, extra garlic! I wouldn’t recommend it though because they already put so much garlic. It’s not as buttery as Giovanni’s or Honos but still so good!

What’s on the plate? Each plate comes varies since it can be customized but generally it comes with 2 scoops of white rice with 12 pieces of shrimp.

Garlic Shrimp Plate Price: Starting at $14.75

Cash or Card? Accepts cash only. They have an ATM on the side.

Fumi’s Kahuku Shrimp Truck the most shrimp plates on their menu. They have a total of 10 different shrimp plates from Garlic shrimp, spicy, lemon pepper, tempura, coconut, and so much more. Their shrimp tasted a bit different than the rest of the shrimp trucks. It was a bit sweet along with the garlic taste (garlic shrimp plate), it tasted as if they marinated their shrimp. Overall, it was still great and I can’t wait to try their coconut shrimp!
