Honolulu Restaurant Recommendations (Part 2)

Next up is garlic shrimp!

Although many people associate garlic shrimp with the north shore of Hawaii, some people can't make the journey out there just to eat garlic shrimp. There are some good restaurants serving garlic shrimp in waikiki also! The one that was my go to place when I didn't want to drive out to the north shore was:

Sam's Kitchen - https://www.yelp.com/biz/sams-kitchen-honolulu?osq=garlic+shrimp

I like the spicy garlic shrimp. It's also in a good location close to DFS Galleria. If you can't make it out to the north shore I would recommend this place on foot. 

If you have a car or are willing to take the bus a little outside of waikiki this place is awesome!

Kau Kau Grill - https://www.yelp.com/biz/kau-kau-grill-honolulu?osq=garlic+shrimp

I would recommend the garlic shrimp, bbq ribs, smoked meat.. well the whole menu is awesome!

If you are going to venture out to the north shore then my favorite place for garlic shrimp is:

Romy's - https://www.yelp.com/biz/romys-kahuku-prawns-and-shrimp-kahuku-3


At this place I always get the butter and garlic sautéed shrimp plate. ( Hint: You can buy a six pack of beer and have a few while you are eating the shrimp! I used to call ahead and make a phone order so it's ready when I get there. I don't know if they still do that but it's worth a try) It's a match made in heaven!

While you are out on the north shore you should drop in at this place and pick up some huli huli chicken! ( Hawaiian rotisserie chicken )


The chicken here is so moist and tasty! It is grilled over special charcoal made from kiawe wood. ( special Hawaiian wood )

I'm getting hungry!
