I think as soon as our plane touched down in Hawaii, I decided that the theme of the honeymoon would be “Nobody Gets Hangry.” I mentioned last time that we had one little afternoon where hanger set in, but once over 12 days isn’t too bad!
Before we jump in, I should make a few things very clear: Sphinx and I love to eat. We’re all about trying new foods and cooking together, even if we don’t have especially adventurous palates. And there’s no such thing as too much garlic in our household. Also, I wasn’t actively dieting before the wedding, but I was watching what I ate and apparently Hawaii was the time to make up for all that. And that’s pretty much all you need to know. Let’s talk about some food.
Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck
So the first one isn’t really a restaurant, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t some of my favorite food on the trip. We had heard tales of the these shrimp trucks on the north shore, and that Giovanni’s was the place to go, so we that’s where we headed after our surfing lesson. Our GPS was directing us to the wrong intersection, so we got a bit turned around, but just look for the open lot with all the trucks in it. Duh. There are several trucks in that area, and I was really tempted to try food from several stands to determine the true winner—but we were starving after our morning in the water and only wanted to wait in one line.
