Roadside food trucks can be found sprinkled all over the Island of Oahu. Drive out of the chain-ridden Waikiki beach and enjoy great fresh food at a fraction of the cost. Today, we drove along the coast to the East beaches and onward to the North Shore. We took a pit stop at this "Shrimp Truck" and ordered the popular garlic shrimp and spicy ahi poke bowl. Shrimp plates are extremely popular because of the accessibility of cheap seafood. The ahi poke was coated with a finger-licking mixture of fish roe, green onion, mayo, hot sauce and spices. The shrimp was pretty straight forward, cooked shell on with a generous pile of fresh garlic and sweet chili sauce atop a bed of white rice. On the side, you see a macaroni salad. Hawaiians go crazy for their macaroni salad made with mayo, whole milk, brown sugar, cider vinegar, elbow macaroni, carrots and celery. If you find yourself traveling in Hawaii, do yourself a favor and STOP at the food trucks- they are NOTHING to fear :)
