Beyond shrimp: North Shore’s new food truck scene


We’ve been hearing a lot about North Shore’s current food truck scene and how it’s evolved way beyond garlic shrimp plates. Although the guidebooks and tours may still lead visitors to the likes of Giovanni, Fumi, Mackey and Romy, hidden among these longstanding shrimp specialists are some newer vendors bringing both variety and excitement to the mix.

Here’s a look at some of the trucks we visited during our recent trek up North.

Located next to Shark’s Cove along Kamehameha Highway in Pupukea, Sandy’s Sandwiches serves up organic sandwiches and salads in a tiny makeshift shop that’s towed in a pickup truck. Owner Ryan Dack launched the business last February with the hopes of serving up healthy lunches to the North Shore crowd.
