Tour High­lights Kahuku Shrimp

MidWeek Islander (Central Oahu) - - Central Oahu Sports -

Din­ing on shrimp is a North Shore tra­di­tion. Fail­ure to stop at one of the nu­mer­ous trucks and shacks ped­dling the ten­der crea­tures nearly sig­ni­fies a wasted ef­fort.

Which one is best is a mat­ter of opin­ion and op­por­tu­nity, with most pick­ing one lo­ca­tion and stick­ing with it. No longer.

Dis­cover North Shore, a two-day celebration of art, food, fash­ion and mu­sic Nov. 17-18 at Turtle Bay, will host a shrimp tast­ing at three of the area’s most pop­u­lar shrimp des­ti­na­tions.

Dis­cover North Shore is part of a larger cam­paign of events known as “Dis­cover Our Is­lands,” which was launched to rec­og­nize Hawaii’s unique cul­ture.

Neigh­bor­hoods across the is­land — in­clud­ing Kakaako, Kualoa Ranch and Waikiki — are hold­ing sim­i­lar events through­out the year, rec­og­niz­ing the unique char­ac­ter­is­tics and fea­tures of each area.

The tour leaves Turtle Bay Nov. 17 in a luxe limobus shut­tle with stops at Gio­vanni’s Shrimp Truck, Romy’s Kahuku Prawns & Shrimp, and Fumi’s Kahuku Shrimp.

Par­tic­i­pants will sam­ple the fare from each stop and be given an ex­clu­sive tour of the trucks, in­clud­ing a look through Romy’s farm shrimp tank and a spe­cial­ized guided farm tour of Kahuku Farms.

Each tour is two hours in length and be­gins at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Park­ing is free at the re­sort’s self­park­ing lot.

Tick­ets are $ 45 and avail­able at amtick­ets.com.
