Romy’s Kahuku Prawns & Shrimp

Everyone who visits Oahu will inevitably go to the North Shore.  Once you’re up in the North Shore, you have a pick of many shrimp “trucks.”  For me personally, I prefer Romy’s.  I don’t think the shrimp is anything special that you couldn’t get anywhere else – I go to Romy’s for the prawns.  Not just the regular prawns, the bambucha ones!  The only prawns I will eat there are the prawns that come with the number 5.  For me, it’s worth the wait and price.  This dish is not for the weak – they are huge prawns with huge heads.  For me, who loves the shrimp head as much as the body…it’s heavenly.   The prawns for the number 5 isn’t always there – you either get there too early or they sell out too fast.  So when I do get the Prawns, it’s all the better!

Number 5 - Prawns!  I get it with the butter garlic sauce.  Sinfully delicious.
