Some people rave about this place but I thought it was just okay. The garlic prawns and rice are good, however the lemon butter prawns were well below par. Try some of the other trucks here as well.

Outstanding shrimp plates - had the scampi and the hot/spicy - both were fantastic! Mac salad was great too. Service was fast!!! Glad we were recommended to stop!

We ate at both Fumi's and Giovanni's on the same day and we all preferred Fumi's. Shrimp were larger and sweeter. Also had more than just garlic shrimp at Fumi's.

Good food. Picnic table seating outside only. Lines are usually quite long. There’s a lake in the back to feed the fish at.

I think you have to try this - shrimp trucks are so popular in north shore. Giovannis was crowded - long lines but the wait is worth it. Fresh shrimp with garlic or spices - so good.

This popular place has delicious shrimp and is a fun cultural experience. Long lines at the food truck are next to a large eating area with picnic tables surrounded by other food trucks with corn on the cob, smoothies and other goodies. It's pretty touristy...More
